Thank you so much for your concern for my arm, you're very kind. Of course I have ignored the ice pack advice (not a chance until it's warmer), although I have been thinking about how I really must start up the exercise plan!!!
I've been playing around with dresses and experimenting with necklines and sleeves in particular. I fell in love with this Irish linen recently, which feels lovely and soft, has a wonderful drape, and will be so comfy in the warmer months. I'm imagining a pretty petticoat underneath, a little lace poking out at the bottom and then some sweet mary janes to round it off.
I love the fact that the checks are not uniform and there's a large repeat in the pattern but because of this, decided to keep the style as plain as plain could be. Round necked, which is interfaced and top stitched and nothing more. The launch of my new website is getting ever closer, with excitement levels akin to the children counting down to Christmas and this dress will be among the first on there.
OK, so it's way too cold to even think about wearing this right now but the Husband and I had a jolly old time with our little modelling shoot yesterday. The sun was very kindly shining brightly and given it was its first appearance in a while, there was very definitely a case of 'now or never'. It was a bit of a struggle getting changed though, especially since I was cosied up under a multitude of layers at the time.
I'm feeling so cold at the moment but the sun is back with us today, which makes me feel hopeful of warmer days to come. Having said that, I think we are getting snow this weekend. Oh well, you can't win 'em all!
Keep warm, everyone.
