getting ready for summer


is it just me or today it's just incredibly hot ? definitely one of those summer days that were not meant for me to be staying indoors working at the office ...
I can't seem to get enough of that shirt pattern, so I've made myself a couple more during the weekend. Red is my favourite color, and I was saving this piece of japanese cotton fabric for something really special.
I had already used some of it for one of the softies' dress but finally decided it was time to make something wearable out of it. I mean, is it not enough that we collect fabrics like crazy, but then we don't have the courage to cut our favourite ones ? It's always such a dilemma ...
The other fabric is very, very light (T. got it for me from Feira dos Tecidos) but has a stunning pattern and beautiful colors.
(and just noticed that Flickr changed its layout completely ... humm, not sure if I like it this way better)

About flickr, forgot to mention it, I HATED it yesterday, specially when I could not figure out how to send messages. But today I am rather liking and the new features, and admittedly it presents a lot of shortcuts. I am a cliché, hating changing but loving it a bit after.

Fizeste muito bem em guardar esse pedacinho 'japono'. A blusa ficou linda. O padrão é realmente bonito. :)))

PS Tb n acho piada nenhuma ao novo layout do flickr mas é como diz a teresa, a gente estranha mas logo se habitua...
