I can't believe it's Sunday evening again already! Where did all the days go?
This week seems to have been non-stop, yet not a lot has happened. Somehow I haven't found time to chronicle or photograph anything that's occurred (including my gravity defying victory rolls last night, I was so proud of those babies!). But anyway, here's the edited highlights of my week :)
1. I started sewing the frock from the Sew and Save book. Seriously, I cannot recommend this book enough. It has loads of useful information on repairs and alterations, but also has a section of patterns to sew. Because it was published for your average 1941 woman rather than super-talented seamstresses, the patterns are fairly simple but I'm still learning a lot. However, both my sewing machines are heading to the great craft room in the sky so it looks like I'll be spending tomorrow evening hand-sewing the sleeves and the hems! I'm off to a 40s dance next Saturday so on a tight deadline if I want to show it off :)
2. I sorted out my community placement! As part of my Masters, I have to do a 180-hour placement in a community setting. It's been a real struggle to find anything interesting in my town, but my supervisor had the idea of working with our local credit union. It sounds really exciting - I'll be learning to be a debt counsellor and working with different community groups - and I can't wait to get started.
3. Yesterday, the mamma bear and my little sister came to visit and we went for shopping and food, the two things we all love! I found the most beautiful dress in French Connection (I know, I didn't expect that!) to wear to my cousin's wedding in Malta. And the best bit... knocked down from £185 to £35! I'm saving it for the wedding, but will most definitely be getting a LOT of photos :)
4. Finally, I've been working my way through the 'Thin Man' movie series. Nick and Nora Charles are my absolute favourite on-screen couple. Ever. If you've never seen it, you should! A perfect blend of detective story, amazing comedy and gorgeous dresses. Here's a little preview:
Obviously, there's been a lot of baking and gardening too, but that goes without saying these days! I'm so looking forward to having all my evenings free (3 more weeks left!) so I have time to both do fun things and talk about them too...
Has anyone else had fabulous weekends?
