Retro Scales

I went back to work on Monday, so less blogging for me
On Tuesday I went to Southend for a meeting and on the way back I visited some of the charity shops. I bought a brand new laptop bag and these beautiful scale with the weights. I have cleaned it and it looks lovely on my kitchen counter. I am going to buy some cherries to display, ummm might be prove an expensive buy if I am thinging of displaying cherries year round in it, but tomatoes will have to do in the meantime

Completed Party Dress

Finally finished my dress for Sunday, as you can see, I not the tallest of people, and my top half is far larger that my bottom half. The dress is fairly fitted and made with a slight stretchy fabric. It has a  V front and back neckline, and although I wasn't sure about the sleeves, but I put them in anyway. the  front around the stomach area is ruched so hides my no existent waist and love handles. Believe it or not it comes to my knee, now you see why I make my own.

Last of my Summer Dresses

 SundresBlack Print Sundress - size 24
I keep hearing that summer is nearly over, and I am gutted because I love the sun. As you have seen I have been busy making some sundresses, hoping that it will encourage the summer to hang around a lot longer longer. Here is the line up of my sundresses, my favourite is the merry go round sundress. I fell in love with the fabric and just had to have it and guess what they have a few more in that theme, (oooh, NO must practice self control, have way too much fabric already)
