I was in Spotlight a few weeks ago buying up big on wool blend when I came across the most bizarre fabric. It was a lightweight denim cotton with embroidered red apples on it.
Sure it was a kid's fabric ... but I couldn't help myself. I had to have it and make a skirt from it. There were a few problems with holes in the fabric, but the store offered me extra so I could fussy cut the pattern, and a couple of days later I had myself a very appley skirt to take to Melbourne. I used red thread for the whole skirt, and a red zipper too. I was going to use red ric rac on the hem, but I thought that might be overkill. So I wear red tights with it instead.
Tights are We Love Colors, again, but this time in red. This skirt and tights combo is a current favourite of mine, and I'm going to shake the public service up on Friday when I wear it on what is probably going to be my last day at work. And maybe I'll create an apple pie chart with some cinnamon data as my farewell present to people I have loved, loved, loved working with for the last ten months. That would be fitting.
