How on earth we’re all still alive after 2 years of me being allowed to wing it and bring up this little girl.
Its not like me to be all gushy but this kid is the best. So I used her as an excuse to make a fabby dress for her birthday.
Her Aunty Anne helped me choose the fabric from Remnant Kings in Edinburgh (more on our adventures of fabric buying together another time – when I have more wine!). Its got flamingos on it. Flamingos! Freaking flamingos!! Just kicking myself for not buying more for me. It bloomin love it.
I decided to try a new skill on this dress. Piping!
Its another Burdastyle pattern but thankfully I was able to work it out without reading their ruddy awful instructions. I used a few online blogs to learn how to do the piping. Of course it was really easy in the end – why do we build these things up in our head?
We had a little gathering down in the country park at the bottom of Roslin glen with friends and family. Twas a lovely afternoon and a lovely way to celebrate the little girls big day.
In other news – I just inherited a sewing table from my Grandma. I knew about the table but what I didn’t know was it would be filled with treasure. When I opened it I emitted a noise that only dogs, astronauts on the international space station, humpback whales and possibly jellyfish can hear. Sometime soon I will document whats in it for a blog post but freaking hell I’m excited!!
