I saw this on the wall in Spotlight the other day. Not the most inspiring poster I think. Way to make crocheting popular Spotlight! Good on you. Not.

Hmmm, how shall I phrase my response?

A: I am disinclined to acquiesce to your request
B: It might be possible using my stomach contents
C: No. Never. On the eyes of my child I-will-not
D: All of the above

Some poor Nana somewhere is huddled on her rocking chair, freezing cold, too rheumatic to give chase to the young floozy who stole her knee rug, scalped it and draped it around her body in a weird homage to vomit, I'm sure.

This, on the other hand, I find less vomity and will attempt to make it. I love Amy Butler's fabric and patterns. I may not be able to do the pattern justice as I have only ever attempted to make one dress and that was back in high school! However I'm sure there will be online tutorials to help me should I get stuck.
I actually think the hardest thing will be to commit to a fabric, I always um and ah so much when it comes to locking in a choice. There's simply too many yummy alternatives when it comes to selecting fabric, I get overwhelmed!
Commitment phobe perhaps? Maybe just plain greedy as really, I want them all!

I'm in love with the Amy Butler Barcelona skirt, and all the dress/tunic patterns. Just need to actually get into my sewing room rather than drooling about all the things I could be sewing (or crocheting - what would possess someone to make granny squares into an off the shoulder frock?).

Ange- I think it's obvious...The Devil!
