Well that was a better day! The Armistice Blouse is done, including fourteen buttonholes and teensy buttons. I also got a parcel [left on the doorstep, which according to Hermes, counts as ‘secure in porch’-humph]. In the parcel, new Fiskars embroidery scissors, and my three-way daylight lamp.
The lamp does duty as desk lamp, floor lamp, and clip on go-anywhere lamp. It has a mains lead AND a nifty little battery pack so I really can use it anywhere. I’m tickled by that funny little accessory dish thing-it won’t be likely to get used, but it is cute. The scissors are just cute as hell, and super sharp. Happy Fairy!
THEN I got an email from MyFabrics, and they sent me a £25 voucher. Joy! I’m not showing you what I ordered until it arrives, so there.
AND I went to visit my ma and pa, and had the sheer amazing uber fun of plucking my ma’s chin whiskers. I really like grooming my mum lol
I also love goats. This is not my mum by the way, although she is called nanny.
Oh, you want to see the blouse? OK then, just some hanger shots for now, I’ll get togged up when the skirt is duly ruffled.
Tomorrow is, of course, a market meet-up day, but I expect to do a bit more sewing afterwards. Still three and a half items on the sewing table, and a gazillion plans for more.
