So, after the iron decided to self-combust today, (no, really- smoke and burning and everything!) things were improved immeasurably by the morning walk to pre-school. Who couldn't be cheered up by this?
The beautiful Sussex Downs.
And this ...?
I dropped off number 1 and moseyed into town for a quick look around. A visit to my local charity shop also helped raise spirits considerably when I stumbled upon these lovely shoes:
Unworn! Perfect for balmy days.
* Mental note to self .. Must stop wearing jeans and t-shirts and dig out floaty summer dresses and fake tan ... *
Also, am still trying to crochet (Ha! Where is there time?) and am working on a little project, but for now, am very pleased with this latest dress for my little crochet dolly:
I adapted the original pattern and have made it a couple of stitches narrower and a few more longer. I think the colours work ok too.
I think next time, I will try working the dress in the round; this one was made by sewing two pieces together and although it looks ok in the photo, it's a bit clunky along the seams.
Am still pleased though!
