I love it when my on-line fabric purchases turn out to be exactly what I wanted, only more gorgeous. This Italian red/ivory batik cotton voile is from Emmaonesock.
Yesterday I was talking with my sister about cutting out more projects than we sew and then I went onto admire Mary Nanna's dedication to one project at a time. Only now, mid-way through quite a big project, I have received this gorgeous, gorgeous fabric, which I was wanting to make into a scarf. It would make a beautiful blouse, but I am one of these people that has to wear colour if I don't want people asking why I look so tired / sick / run-down etc. A scarf will get me a lot more wear from my neutrals.
And really, it will only be a minor interruption. Just sew two lengths together, narrow hem the sides, a wash to soften and crinkle a little and I'm done. It will be perfect to take on my holiday. I'd better go change the thread in my machine.
