You know the ones…funny things happen…not funny ‘funny’…but funny ‘telepathic’ things that make you feel a teeny bit witchlike?
Usually happens between very good friends or close family…sometimes you think of a person and they text/ring you in the very next minute…
or you think of them, turn the corner of the street, you are walking on and bump into them!!
I had one yesterday between me and Mollie Makes mag.
Let me explain.
For some weeks I have been planning on making a very simple dress to wear with boots and thick tights.
It had to contain certain elements…..it had to be simple, with two front pockets, a high neckline and it was to be made from warm fabric.
Then the Toast catalogue turned up and I had my inspiration on page 47..
The Milano Dress.
Only I could not afford that price 215 pounds (gasp) Ok I accept it is extra fine merino wool but still not in my price range….it comes in blue too.
Next, whilst ‘snuffling’ in my local fabric shop, I noticed New Look patterns were on 1/2 price sale, I flicked through the pattern book very halfheartedly as I dont love new look Patterns (they come up very small) but the page almost fell open at this pattern…. that I purchased immediately!
Yesterday I had another look at the latest mollie makes mag and noticed this…
Can you see what the girl on the front is wearing…..?
The Milano dress!!
Today I found some pure wool fabric…lots of it….more later
and some fabric with a high percentage of wool…
Next week is our half term…I will be busy.
So funny coincidence?
Whats is your latest funny coincidence…are you feeling witchy or ‘stitchy’ this week?
