I have been a very bad girl

I just went to the fabric shop. I bought 14 metres of fabric.... Yes, I got a little carried away. It is not as bad as it sounds though - 4 metres of that is lining fabric... I thought I would pop in to a little fabric shop I hardly ever visit (I had to go to a bus stop near it so I thought I might as well see what they have now). I wanted to get some fabric to make pyjamas. I am quite in a pyjama making mood these days - I have already made one and a half sets in the past few weeks. So I got some cotton. Some is plain pink with stripes (the stripe is a different texture) and the other is pink and green striped.

That fabric is in the wash now. I am actually pre-washing fabric! I don't do that nearly often enough. Normally impatience takes over me. Yesterday though I tried on a half finished wool jacket I had made. It's shrunk! I hadn't hemmed it at all or put in any facings but I have worn it a few times, I think it looks ok unfinished. So I washed it in cold water. I wash most of my clothes in cold - and it shrunk anyway! Is wool not washable?

The other fabric I bought is a border print nylon. It's gorgeous. I can't wait to make a Spring dress out of it.
