|Me made Burda style dress in off white with vintage pattern flowers|
I wore this dress with a net underskirt to give it a little extra poof. I have to say it was the hottest place we probably could have gone to for a day out as the dome where this was taken is always a good few degrees hotter than outside but it was blazing in there yesterday. We made a beeline for the waterfall where this shot was taken and very sluggishly dragged ourselves around to look at the beautiful plants. We actually had to go outside to cool off!
And here's today's version which was a precursor to the one above if my memory serves me right.

On the bright side I got some post today! I know it's Sunday but my neighbour kindly took in a parcel for me, and I was so happy to have it today! It's my winnings from Cloud 9 Fabrics! I won 13 fat quarters and they're just so darn cute. I haven't decided yet whether I want to make a quilt or if I want to make individual things out of them like bags or purses...I'm still pondering.

Sadly there are no flamingoes, however, I nearly hyperventilated today when J pointed out that there were big plastic garden ornament flamingoes in the shop we were buying a fence post from (yeah, I know, exciting...fence posts) and I rushed over but it just didn't look 'right' and it was £20 so way above what I would pay for a kitsch flamingo, even I have limits. I am on the hunt for a flamingo like the ones seen in the TV series Wonderfalls. If it talks to me all the better! hehe! I already own a smooch faced lion made as souvenirs of the show.
So that's been my weekend, I'll leave you with a few choice pictures of my day out yesterday.
