It’s been a rather busy week, so apologies for my lack of blogging – I even took photos of the dress (almost finished) way back at the beginning of the week, but I’ve not had time to post them yet!
In the meantime, however, I have a few other bits and pieces to natter about and hopefully on Sunday I’ll be able to post some photos of the dress.
I had an email this week to say that my order has been dispatched, so this book is on its way to me right now!
I’m quite excited as I saw this book months ago on a crafty/stitchy trip with a friend of mine and I was impressed by the clear explanation of how to make a block (with photographs to illustrate) and some gorgeous dresses. I seem to recall there are about 4 or 5 dresses in the book, but Simon Henry suggests various permutations for each one, from changing length to adding embellishments and decorative touches. In reality, you could make dozens, even a hundred dresses from these patterns, depending on how imaginative you are!
Anyway, the point being that I finally ordered it last week and can’t wait to get my greedy little mitts on it. More info here when I’ve had a proper look at it!
On a quick aside – Politics – it’s all rather interesting here at the moment, things are all up in the air thanks to a hung Parliament. I can’t wait to see what happens.
‘Hang on,’ you might be thinking, ‘did she say she couldn’t post photos until Sunday? Whyever not?! Doesn’t she care about us?!’ Of course I do, but I am hopping on a train tonight to my mother’s so that tomorrow we can go with my sister to London to seeeeeeeeeeeeee
I love the film and I cannot wait to see this tomorrow – it’s going to be super-awesomeness incarnate! Plus, extra fun, we’re staying in a hotel in London, so I won’t be home until Sunday afternoonish. Hence the lack of blogging until then, my dears.
In the meantime, let me leave you with one last P (we’ve had Party Dresses, politics and Priscilla):
OK, so it’s a slight cheat, but it is vulpes zerda, the fennec fox. And I love them. And they’re cute. So, sssssh!
