I've just come home from a wonderful quilting retreat up at Blackheath, in the Blue Mountains of NSW. Three solid days of sewing - just perfect!!! But a sewing retreat wouldn't be complete without a little shopping.

In the middle of our Australian Summer, I made two pairs of Oliver + S Sunny Day Shorts. I knew that before shorts wearing weather finished, I would make another pair, but with some modifications. I wanted to add contrasting bands to finish off the legs.

Last year I made this skirt using a bright, fun print... Dr Seuss Fabric - Pastel Rainbow Hills by Robert Kaufman - Oh the places you'll go. The close up photos further down in the post show the colours best.

It's easy to make a small sewing kit that contains all of your essential sewing accessories. A zippered pouch makes it easy to take your bits and pieces to a sewing day, or just to keep them neat and tidy at home.
