Doesn't that sound so nice and domestic. Anyway, here's what this is: I take photos of stuff I've finished during the past week, and dump it all here.
This will encourage me to: finish things, *iron* things, improve photographically, mend the vacuum cleaner ('cos I might need to take pictures on thee floor, and can't if it's covered in bits.)
You get to: look at finished things. You can critique/suggest/point&laff, if you like.
Today's offering is: two skirts which are twins, but different.
They're both the 'Portrait Skirt' design. First one I have shownoff before, but it was languishing unworn, so I gave it a new ribbon and got better pictures. I will actually wear it this year, for sure.
Green 'Victorian Alphabet' quilting cotton. Rose pink grosgrain ribbon, cream raschel lace trim but it's decent raschel and not revolting, honest.
I am in a blouse quandary with regards to this, though. I've just found a new supplier for blouse cotton, so I finally have a place nailed down (before I was going to about 4 different ones depending on who was out of what), but I want to redo all my blouses 'cos I'm tired of them. So until I get that sorted it might have to wait to be worn. Still, I am not wearing it in the sno.
Blue rose pattern cotton, ex-curtains. Go Curtains! I was hoping to suggest the perennial favourite Victorian Maiden rococo floral pattern with this. Or, I needed a blue floral classicy skirt, whichever. I'm looking forward to when I receive my IW black jumper (it's a totally plain black jumper, that's it, and it will match everything) and can wear it with this and a pearl choker. 'Cos I'm, like, 60 years old.
Oh, you'd wear a pearl choker if you had the chance. Anyway, I am quite taken with black+pastels, and once I get that damned jumper I will be wearing them everywhere.
Lastly, here's a slightly goony picture of me in the sno.
Or rather, you can't see any snow, but why would I be wearing all these layers? Skirt, top which you can't see: BTSSB. Coat, beret, muff, neck thing: me. I really like the hat.
