Thanks [livejournal.com profile] mrsbrown , Anne's delivered. Good black wool/cashmere for $25/m. Brunswick fabrics has lots of coating but lesser quality, some interesting colours and cheaper. There was a fabulous bright, large check which I thought about but resisted. Sadly no emerald green for [livejournal.com profile] erudito . Anne's had really heavy dense green wool but I think it is meant for billiard tables. You could make hats out of it but not garments I think. She had a green of a nice colour but very poor quality- it's a bad sign when it is pilled already on the roll. For those interested- she had nice mid weight white linen for $15/m. Good stuff but not cheap,cheap.

Now I need to either buy a coat pattern, take one off my brown coat with alterations, or draft from scratch. Probably the second option. That requires my morning brain, so not now. Need to make style decisions, trim, buttons, lining etc. I have lots of lining fabric but no pieces big enough to line a long coat. Would have been good to have patterned before buying fabric but these places are not open Sundays and I don't mind having a bit extra black wool cashmere in the house.

I'm having an upside down day. Dressed up for fancy birthday breakfast for [livejournal.com profile] giddyaunt  this morning. Lovely fun. Then at noon I had my 6mthly haircut. I was distressed that my hairdresser near work seemed to have closed. Turns out they are refurbishing and will reopen, whew. I tracked my man down at their city store and went there after our (looong) breakfast. Hair man was most cute as usual and seemed pleased I had followed him. He even got a second chap to work on my hair with him for a bit. "Goodness, two of you at once!" I said. The retort was "Yes" (pause) "you'll have to go to church after". Much fun and I even got a nice haircut.

So very social start but quiet finish. I'm vaguely annoyed I didn't manage to set anything up for tonight. Generally I only have the emotional energy to ask twice. If I get turned down by two lots of people, I end up spending the evening alone. Never mind. I shall experiment with stuffing some home grown capsicums for dinner.
