I had the best day out in London, many thanks for all your best wishes. I was really very reserved with my shopping, only a couple of meters of Tana Lawn from Liberty’s in my joint favourite pattern, ‘Wiltshire’ (my other is ‘Mirabelle’, if you’re interested).
The BBC recording was a Kander and Ebb special for Friday Night is Music Night, so it was mostly classics from Chicago and Cabaret, hosted by Joel Gray (from the original film and musical) and with none other than Tony Hadley as one of the singers. I kept expecting him to burst into singing ‘Gold!’, although I’m not sure the other audience members knew who he was, we were the only people there with our own teeth. Still a good day all round and I thoroughly enjoyed myself (thanks sis!).
Back to business, I began sewing a new dress from some of my lovely Voiles, but to be blunt with you it all started to go wrong and having taken so long to get my sewing mojo back, I abandoned it for something with a more immediate ‘hit’.
It’s exactly the kind of thing I would have been given as a child and I enjoyed my first couple of attempts at weaving flowers.
I really like the idea of finely woven ones but I’m undecided on the results, I need to play a little more; still, it’s the perfect quick pick up put down project that fills the little gaps of time and has an immediate result, I’ll be needing some of those over the summer holidays I can’t tell a lie, I am a little worried about six weeks of full time children, but I’m keeping optimistic and have lots of little projects lined up, both for them and for me. In fact, if you hang around I have a second post to directly follow this, where I have finally started on some new products – hurrah!
