I made it to work every day this week, despite snow and a heavy cold. I have been coming home and collapsing straight into bed after dinner. But I think I am almost over it – hooray!
FL is still coughing. He is not happy.
But… I got my hair cut and feel a lot better for that – yay! This was my main motivation in making that 6th attempt to get my car up the snow-laden hill on Wednesday! My next step will be to open the packet of Violet Vendetta hair dye. I kid you not! Have you seen Rachel Herron’s hair? Love it!
The new Boden catalogue is amusing me greatly. I think they have been digging through my fabric store for inspiration!
Neon yellow and grey striped t-shirt? In my stash!
Broderie, contrast cotton-lined skirt? In my stash!
Orange dress? In my stash!
Lots of lovely shoes and some more realistic prices this season – at last!
Orange patent penny loafers are very appealing… and I can’t sew my own ;)
But best of all, the fresh colours (turquoise! orange! lemon!) and retro vibe of that catalogue has reminded me that I have a whole heap of vintage patterns that I want to sew. Yeah, I know I said I thought I was “over” the vintage look, but I was wrong. I was just looking at them in too literal a way. So watch this space – some sewing may be on its way! :D
But tomorrow is the Edinburgh Yarn Festival, so there won’t be much sewing this weekend. I am zooming down by train, there and back in one day. Christine and I will be knitting all the way!
I am meeting my mother there, which will inhibit my stash-enhancement activities but won’t prevent me from eating cake. Say hello if you see me!
