|Me wearing me made lotus top, me made cord skirt and my favourite shoes, notice I'm using the pockets in my skirt!|
You all must be getting sick of me wearing this top but I had to put it with the grey cord skirt as I really like grey and yellow together. I'm only sorry I don't have any yellow or grey shoes...I do have silver strappy sandals but they're a bit dressy and I don't think the orange/pink shoes go too badly (coming from someone who's very happy to wear pink and red together that might sound strange...!)
Had a really good haul from an Oxfam charity shop today! Got two ENORMOUS soft cotton sheets for 99p! And I got about a metre of dark blue fabric with what looks like daffodils to me on it for £1.99. Score! I also treated myself to some metal zips in various colours and sizes and a big green plastic zip for the bag I'll be making for my sister with this fabric.

In other news, I signed up to the Sew Weekly Sewing Circle and it appears it was just in time as the UK members are trying to organize a meet up in London in May that they've invited me to, with a colour theme and maybe even a dress if all of us can make one in time! Need to check out the train times and cost, but I'm not sure I can resist a visit to the V&A with like minded people followed by fabric shopping and tea and cake! I've been thinking about what flat shoes I have that will enable my feet to last all day...a good sign I'm probably going so I'd better start saving my pennies too.
