I had a lovely relaxing weekend doing things I like, with only a smidge of the stuff I don't like thrown in.
Friday night's curry was delicious...
...and the pint of Cobra, through which Seldom Seen is peering, went down very nicely, thank you.
I missed two vintage fairs on Saturday through being too lazy to go into town - I wasn't feeling it, and they are pretty frequent occurrences anyway.
Miss one, and another one comes along in a few weeks.
The wind and rain are trying their hardest to shake all the blossom from the cherry tree, but it's hanging on in there, at least for a little while longer.
Littlest and I went out for a quick spot of shopping and the obligatory cafe visit on Saturday. We found a mirror in a charity shop, just right for her bedroom.
(Don't look at the heinous state of our skirting and floorboards.)
This is me today.
The lollipop lady looked askance at my double tights action this morning, and said it was migraine-inducing...
What do you think?
I used some fabulous tapestry fabric I bought ages ago from a charity shop to make another bag. I had to use the lining to extend the straps, but I rather like the effect.
If you are wondering why I am making so many tote bags - there's only so many I can use, after all - I am trying to perfect my technique so they are good enough to be gifts or maybe to sell at our school Christmas fair.
Trouble is, anything I make always has a touch of the wonk about it. Which I don't mind, but other people might...
Polished and professional... not so much.
But I do have a fine sense of the ridiculous and the ability to laugh at myself, and those are skills of which I am proud, even if the sewing isn't up to much.
1970s D L Barron maxi dress (neckline altered by me), 1960s stainless steel star ring and pendant - flea market
Beret, cardigan, shoes and bangles - charity shopped
Sunglasses - Ebay
Green beaded bracelet - swap gift from dear Sacramento
This dress continues the Art Deco theme from my previous post, the print has that look about it.
And though I am slightly camouflaged among all the greenery of the garden, I still intend to be visible over at Patti's this Monday!
Hope you had a good weekend, filled with the things you like.
