Tales of the sewing machine…

These photos were taken a week or so ago. I made the skirt last Summer when I saw this fun fabric in the haberdashery (I love that word) department in my local John Lewis. The elasticated waistband is a bit messy (hence the belt) due to my skills having not much improved from the time I destroyed all the needles on the sewing machines, when I took textiles at school. I remember my teacher’s look of disbelief that was only ever reserved for me when I broke yet another needle. Luckily, my sewing machine emerged unscathed!

I’ve been in a wierd daze today, possibly a combination of being stuck in-doors studying, the glorious sunshine and sound of children playing outside!.

On a side note, I’ve just booked to go to Marrakesh (flights were only £80!) with friends at the end of June for a few days. Has anyone been and got any recommendations? Excited!
