Parfait Progress ...

It's all coming together nicely for the Independent Sewalong.  I love the fabric, which is a really soft Italian cotton.  It's all cut out now and I've read up on how to sew it all, so just need to do that!  Will try and get some done in the week but if not then a good session next weekend.  Still have 2 weeks to finish, which I'm happy about because I'm taking things at a much more leisurely pace nowadays.  Which is, after all, the Colette Pattern ethos ...
