Here I was playing a game of pap the papparazzi
What day are we in now? the days all seem to have blurred into one. Somewhere between friday 17th june and today, I've kind of lost track of where I am. anyways, saturday was a special day. Zoe organised a MMJ meet-up in Brighton, for those who could make time to attend.
So there I was, trying to reaasure Mr.Dibs on friday night, as I lay shivering on my bed, that I would be well enough to go to Brighton on saturday. I'd been to work on friday, but left early when my boss saw me crying ( lol, yes i do that when i am in pain), and told me to go home.
Nothing was going to stop me from going to Brighton. Not when I had managed to bag a return ticket for £10. I was hoping by saturday morning I would be feeling better, but when I woke up on saturday to a massive headache, I knew I had to take emergency actions. I quickly overdosed on pain killers, and smiled bravely at Mr.Dibs when he enquired after my health.
Anyways, here are a couple of shots.
|Claire's magical trolley, which had everything inside!!|
|Santie all excited!!|
|Tilly taking notes. How sweet is this?|
|Santie, Tilly and I|
After a couple of glasses of wine, the smiles are more effortless...quite enthusiastic if i may say
I was so glad I went, because I met Santie, who I will be meeting in Belgium in a couple of days for more fabric shopping. I also discovered the best place to be in this world, if anything were to go wrong, like some terrorist attack, or anything major. That place could be anywhere, and I mean it seriously, anywhere, so long as I am with Claire. Claire is one seriously organised person. She has everything for anything in her bag. So Claire, if you are reading this, I think you are seriously cool!!
I also came away with alot of fabric from the fabric swap. I don't have any pics of them, because I forgot to take pictures of them, but most of what I got came from Claire, so whenever i do make something out of them, I will be giving a big shout out to her.
You will be happy to know that I did not buy any fabric. Seriously. I only bought a couple of metres of milliners elastic, for fascinators. I still have to finish the fascinator I am making for Rachel, so I'm glad I got that. I also bought a couple of buckles, and leather thonging for jewellry making. Aww, I'm all grown up now. I can resist the lure of fabric. I might not be so restrained when I go to Belgium though. Santie and I will be going crazy in Antwerp soon.
Sunday, I decided to draft a skirt pattern.
