The outfit was finished on time. The final applique had some work at coffee and crafting (thanks Chrissy) but all was done and ready to wear for Saturday night.
I was a little disheartened with the skirt along the way but then I applied the felt ‘garden’ and now it is totally redeemed. I call this my ‘love garden’ skirt because all the ‘flowers’ are hearts in circles.
The top is plain but not black which I am trying to remove from my wardrobe as much as possible. While I have no problem with black I just don’t love the way it looks on me. I don’t really think it suits my colouring, my personality or even the style I dress with.
I received these gorgeous photos today from my lovely quilt recipient. I cheekly asked if she might send me an email of the quilt in its new home and here it is!
Apart from that I am heading into a week without my camera so I will have to work harder at my descriptions and hopefully have lots of things to show you by next weekend.
Last night I had the treat of a dinner out with lovely husband at a fabulous Christchurch restaurant – Chinwag, Eat Thai. I love going to a restaurant that has great food, interesting decor and staff that seem to love their job. A great experience.
Also this weekend I crossed off the French Toast recipe. Husband and I enjoyed French Toast for Saturday lunch.
It was improved by the fact it was made using my home-made bread and topped with home-made ‘maple syrup’.
Then we watched the heats of the 48 hour film festival and went home for a sleep without our babies. Thanks to the grandparents we had a blissful sleep in this morning and I am feeling thoroughly spoilt. Aren’t families such a gift from God?
