…take pictures of their new shoes.
Well I do when I’m really pleased with them like these from Poetic Licence that arrived this morning. Pretty box and lots of tissue, well made and yes, on sale too
The wide-leg striped linen trousers based on my french knicker block came into being… complete with sailor style front placket openings. Next time I make trousers with so many buttons to do and undo I will put a sneaky invisible zip in the side seam as this many buttons is a pain.
Did a 12 mile cycle around the tiny lanes of Romney Marsh in Kent on Bank Holiday Sunday. It was gorgeous. Didn’t take much in the way of photos as I was concentrating on cycling…staying on the bicycle that is. We did pass this little church and wish I had taken pics. Turns out it’s a really popular photography subject anyway and this photo by Stephen Nunnery is a beautiful one of it.
On the drive home made a little stop at Pett beach for an ice-cream and soggy chips (french-fries) and we could just glimpse Dungeness across the bay. That’s our next cycle destination apparently as having finally got me on a bike at long last Mr.Outdoor Activity insists we do more! Honestly, though more of a walker, I did have a fab time. Need my own bike , borrowing my daughters un-comfy off-road bike wasn’t ideal. This bike from Beg Bicycles is more the style I have in mind. The Mister may beg to differ. I see trouble ahead…
Hay rolls always signal the end of the summer to me. Getting to the last of the garden posies too.
So this was just a little catch-up post… I do sometimes do things besides sew. Some costume work has just come in so I’ll be busy and quiet until it’s time for the French Knicker Sew-along. See you then.
