i'm getting there on my list of to dos...

one headpiece finished and i'm making my handbag tonight. only decided what to wear to the wedding in ireland yesterday after panicking that a) i needed something a bit more autumnal and b) that it's most likely to be cold so i'll need to wear tights! so i've abandoned my cream summer dress and gone for a jade green one with plum legs instead. if we get any decent photos i'll post some on our return! lucky ciaran is a groomsman so he has his suit hired and waiting for him when he gets there. it's so easy for men!

i know i made this little hat under pressure but it made me remember just how much i love creating them and i am very excited at the thought of testing the water and making a few to sell when i come home.

thank you for the sweet comments on the last post. i just made the draw and the corsage is heading off to sweet myrtle tomorrow. giveaways are fun. i must do more!

so it's back to the sewing machine for me now. cup of tea and the archers for company. i'll not be back until october 1st...so cheerio for now! xxx

p.s. i was so happy to hear from this lady yesterday...who i went to school with years and years ago. we're in touch now through facebook and i spent time falling in love with her shop and her hound when i found her wonderful website. hope you're reading this simone...how funny to find each other through blogland all this time later!
