Quiet Weekend NOT!

So master plan was to garden and sew ….

I must at this point say despite having DD2 best friend blue lighted to hospital this morning following a sleep over…… Suspected gall stones poor darling I did actually mow the lawn, water the beds, do a bit of weeding AND created one garment for holiday 😳

Miraculous really and still not entirely sure how I managed it other than maybe the rush of nervous adrenalin. So for your perusal … FORGIVE PLEASE ITS NOT IRONED …… one shot of the rediscovered Indian fabric ready for beach time lounging 😎

    Wow! Stunning top and such a productive day! I think blogging makes us realise who much we can fit in. A lot of my friends wonder how I have time to do what I do, and sometimes I don’t know either! 😀

    It really is AND as I expect an expanding holiday waistline the elasticated waist will be perfect 😉
