I decided to wear a home made outfit and so pulled out my bow blouse with my Simplicity 3688 skirt (I must make some more separates!) and threw a Marks and Spencer cardigan on. Pretty and comfy. I'm really pleased to be getting a range of handmade clothes into my wardrobe.
|I'm so pleased to be going to work on my Birthday!|
I saw my parents and grandparents at the weekend and had a really lovely family meal on Sunday. Everyone has given me lovely gifts too.
From my parents I got some Freddies 1940s workpants, Erin's book 'The Secret Lives of Dresses', 'Air Raids and Rationbooks' - a book on life on the homefront and 'Went the Day Well?' That's enough to keep me busy for a while!
My work colleagues gave me some gardening vouchers, a book on growing vegetables and some brussel sprout and beetroot seedlings. I think I'm going to be hard at work for the next few weeks getting everything in the ground!
And finally, this was Tom's gift
I'm really excited about getting to grips with using this and I'm hoping it's going to help me make my creations that little bit more professional. Tom bought it from Sewing Machines Direct. Terrible website, great service. It came with 4 free cotton spools in black, white a cream, a set of scissors and some sewing basics like an unpicker and tape measure. And a free carry case for the overlocker. Pretty good if you ask me!
I spent the evening at a local pub with some friends. Nothing flashy but it was lovely to have everyone together and just chat away for several hours.
|Happy Birthday to me!|
