Hello to all my followers, those who comment and those who visit. I can't express how much it means to me to have you all pop over to say hello. Please continue, and know I am always here for a chat.
Today I have spent the day on the floor of my room trying too DIY my jacket; and its been so HARD! First my sewing machine brakes (honestly have no idea what is wrong with it), then the fabric glue I bought is useless, then I can't find my stitch unpicker, then I drop the thread about a hundred times (teach me for using 'invisible' thread), and I poke both my finger and my thighs with the needle. It's like this jacket just doesn't want to be completed.
But despite this there has been progress; and the trickiest bit is now over! This will not beat me- I refuse point blank to either give up or simplify my design. Here is a small progress shot, and I apologise for it not being completed today- if everything had gone to plan it should have but I'm going to work extra hard to get it sorted asap and share with you all.
Velvet skirt: eBay
Socks: No idea... possibly Primark
Headscarf: Camden market.
Bag: Gift- I think River Island.
My boyfriend LOVES this cardigan (he has even worn it himself once or twice), maybe because I wore it on our first date, but mostly because its just so effortlessly beautiful; and looks very grunge- perfect to pair with the t-shirt.
Finally, today I learnt its impossible to over brew Ginger and lemon tea!
I love tea but I can't stand it when people 'let it brew'. It makes the tea all scummy and gives it a funny taste. but I forgot I asked my mum for a tea and she always leaves it to brew. But 10 minutes later when I remembered my tea there was no scum and it tasted just as good as always- YAY!!
An overall good day today.
