Mother's Day

My Mother's Day as always is special for two reasons...

One I have the most truly magical/loving/kind and caring son I could ever, ever wish for.

Two I have a very special mum who I love dearly and a great mother in law and a wife, so my son has two mum's now.

Yesterday I spent the day with H at Crufts it is a great event but very tiring, I pity the exhibitors and dogs it must uber tiring for them.

Today me and H and Willow (the dog) took a walk to the local shop and purchased some lovely Carnations and Daffodils, one set for our house and another for Mother in Law as she is coming to wife's awesome Sunday roast dinner today and the gift I had ordered had not come in time.

The soap and dish I had sent direct to mum did and she LOVED them, said the soap smelt like spring.

With the rest of my day I shall be catching up thanks to IPad Mr Selfridge, Gardener's World and Planners whilst carrying on with my lovely new shawl I started am liking the colour graduation it looks lovely.

I have also painted my nails using Rimmel Metal Rush a choice master H picked out for me as he said I wear lots of browns and greens.

Edinburgh Yarn Festival 2019

This festival has been on my bucket list of must visits for a few year's.

For me my time in Edinburgh has not just been about yarn, it has been way way more.  It has been about a journey of beginning to believe in myself as a designer. Also about overcoming the anxiety of being away from my family.
It has been about having the confidence to go up to people I have never met and talking to them.

But it has also been about gathering inspiration and learning and boy does Edinburgh have inspiration by the bucket load!!!

The architecture is just beyond what I have seen before and the colours are just such an inspiration.

So please do enjoy journey I have taken over the last few days in picture form.

On my final day at the show I bought the Laine knitting journal, which will be so great for designing. But decided to grap the opportunity of creating the most perfect keepsake and ask people I admire to sign what ever they wanted.  The messages are so amazing and inspiring, thank you.

Birthday loveliness.

Last week I celebrated my birthday. I received beautiful flowers, my dear friend sent me a gorgeous skein of yarn and a pattern, along with the perfect project bag.
The following day my son and I took a trip to WWT Slimbridge where we did a canoe trip and safari which was fascinating. 
All in all a great couple of day.

Dottie Angel Dress.

Back in July this year Dottie Angel produced her first sewing pattern consisting of three variations of a smock or a dress in her perfect style pattern by Simplicity New Look.

Tif (Dottie Angel) has a global admiration of her work and many many of these beautiful creations started to begin.

So began my journey of picking fabric and binding all done online.

The dark brown corduroy was for the main body and the flowers for the pockets.
Then I wanted to get a lovely binding to set it off and found Liberty print binding on Etsy

Then I handed it all over to my very talented mum, who has many many years of experience and who so kindly offered to make it for me.

Then on 8 September the day arrived when I received my parcel at work with the lovely dress all perfectly packaged in it.

So here is the big reveal.

If you would like to see other lovely dresses go to #dottieangel and see the love.
