It was a lot sunnier earlier in the day but by the time we got out into my mother-in-law's garden the sun had dropped down. She was happy to take photos of me in her garden thankfully as she'd weeded and mown the lawns the day before! She's got a beautiful garden and is very proud of it and is desperately trying to teach me and I'm trying to learn!
And because she wanted to make sure I got a good shot and because I want to show a bit more of her garden here's another shot!

I was also very very lucky in that she'd found me a lovely Monsoon skirt in a charity shop that she'd already found time to wash and iron that's really pretty. She's such a good charity shop buyer, she was the one who found me my sewing machine for £5! Again, she's trying to teach me the art of charity shop bargain shopping!
So back to the dress I was trying to make today. Well, it's almost finished in that all I need to do is hem the lining and the outer. I tried it on as a final fitting and sadly I need to take it almost all apart.
