Finally have a wee offering after weeks of being busy doing ……….. mmmmm what have I been doing? Me thinks rather a lot of tail chasing which is neither fun or productive 😳
Did nab a couple of lovely bits of fabric at Walthamstow with DD1 and feel a medal is deserved as I for once in a lifetime only purchased what I actually needed *nods in respect to oneself* 🤗
In addition to fabric for a dress for my friends wedding yesterday I wanted a fabulously bling trim. The joy of a same sex wedding, if I can’t dress in super bling there, then no better opportunity will ever present itself.
Found the perfect trim at £4 per meter which I thought was a bit pricey until I found something similar but not as pretty IMHO on tinterweb at £20 per meter. My purchase became an instant bargain.
The sew was shall we say, a sweary Mary experience as the Devore was like sewing spiders web BUT it paid off as I got to utter those most satisfying words many times. “I made it” then watching the expressions such as ‘it’s witchcraft, clever, unbelievable etc’. Got to love those moments, they make up for past sewing tragedies.
Took my own advice after recent gaff with neckline shape and went for a very deep v neck, I was more than a little pleased with the end result.
It was wonderful to be with much loved friends and getting to see the last of the summer flowers and green trees before Autumn truly gets a grip.
