Funky Fish Fabric!

I've been watching the Great British Sewing Bee and it has inspired me to do a bit of sewing again! 

Look at this great fabric I bought:

It's really a quilting fabric, but I'm going to use it to make a dress to wear for school visits. I've got a few fishy dresses that I wear, but this material is the best I've found. There are lots of funny faces, but I think this little orange guy is my favorite!

I'm not sure on the style yet, but maybe something a bit vintage-y would look nice. It's just a shame I won't be able to make it in time for World Book Day on Thursday, but it will be a fun project for next week.

Smiley Shark in Korean!

Look what arrived this morning! Several other languages came too, but this was the most exciting  because the Korean language looks so different and amazing. They've even translated my name into Korean, which I'm quite happy about. I always wondered what it would look like!
