I haven’t done any sewing since the week before The Wedding.
with a collarless yellow jacket, [which unfortunately I haven’t got a photo of] to the family meal the night before the wedding. To the wedding I wore this black wool skirt with this silk top and with a green/blue tweed ‘chanel’ type jacket. For the evening reception I wore this handsewn colourful jacket
over a self drafted princess-line sheath dress in black crepe that I made about three years ago. Three self sewn outfits [with the exception of the yellow jacket and the tweedy chanel-type jacket] for a lovely family weekend in a beautiful setting in the Wye Valley in Wales at Kieran and Emily’s wedding – a beautiful bride and lovely bridesmaids, great fun.
Since coming back I have been Uber busy -fortunately the weather has been kind to us and the projects in the garden are largely finished, two new sheds and a long path laid down the side of the garden, a nice little paved bit outside the chickens and new wooden shed so that even in the wettest parts of Winter I will not be slipping and sliding around in the dark – oh yes, I have had a new garden security spot light put up – all this courtesy of my gorgeous American son-in-law Tom, thankyou, thankyou Tom! Love you to bits. Pictures up next post.
