Christmas shirts

Gareth gor two new Christmas shirts on the first. (there was a third, but I think it has to wait until next year because I really didn’t have the right buttons). Both were fabric from Mason in Abingdon, I had an event at watlington a month or so back and unfortunately it finished at twelve so I had time to go shopping on my way home.

At least this rather tasteful black fabric was on sale, so that totally justifies buying it, right?

And it has poinsettia buttons.

It’s almost tasteful, that one. which is more than can be said for the second shirt.

I’d been eyeing these various bauble fabric for a while, but they didn’t really match, colourwise. But then decided that they’re a theme, so the colours don’t matter, and it’s Christmas, so taste doesn’t matter either unless you;re talking about mince pies.

I put tree buttons on, to go with the baubles.

Most are plain green trees, but I put fabulously sparkly (and fabulously expensive, which was why I only bought three)ones on the collar and cuffs. He hasn’t noticed those yet, he’ll think they’re ghastly when he does, but he’s already thanked me for the shirts, so it’s too late now.

I cut out a huge pile of fabric that had accumulated over the year about five weeks back, and since then the short pile in my sewing room has mysteriously expanded, so it looks as if I’m speindg the week before christmas sewing buttons on everyone’s presents.

  1. It’s always the finishing details that slow you down, isn’t it!

  2. These are splendid. (And it was sooo unfortunate that you had — just had — to shop.)
