A bit cooler

The weather broke today so it was a bit cooler - thank God! I like when the weather is fine but I can't take it when its too hot. And being an Irish lass, too hot for me is generally anything over around 23 degrees.

Smem is walking around like crazy, and still wearing her shoes for periods during the day. We'll have to go shopping for proper shoes soon I think.

In crafting news, I finished the quilt I was working on, but haven't typed it up yet. Still working on my socks, which I haven't taken a picture of yet. Working on a new knitting pattern for the shop - a clown this time!

I'm also making a dress for me as I'm going to a hen party this month that is a ladies' day at the races. I've never been to a ladies' day so it should be good.
I've knit the bodice, which I made with hand-died silk that I bought about a year ago on Dwanda. I'm stealing the skirt from a Simplicity pattern I have. I've the lining cut and sewn but still have to tackle the main part. I'm using a chiffon-like polyester pink polka-dot fabric that I'm a little scared of using. I hate awkward fabrics!

C will be out tomorrow night so I'll get some sewing done so hopefully I'll get it almost finished this weekend - hopefully!

What a beautiful top! Love the multi-colour effect!!

*lol* This reminded me of my year abroad and how utterly can't-believe-my-eyes-stunned I was to see people wearing mini-skirts and sleeve-less tops in the middle of winter. *g*
