Fellow UK residents, and residents of other wintry parts of the world, are you feeling frustrated by the gloomy weather and lack of light?
I'm absolutely itching to share my two latest finished projects with you – a delightful Pendrell Blouse and a snug snood inspired by Karen – but there never seems to be good enough light for photographs! It's gloomy when I leave for work in the mornings and pitch black by the time I leave work. I'm so desperate that I've even considered nipping home at lunch time to snap a few, but it's been grey and raining all this week. Pathetic eh!?!
So until I find some light to photograph my finished goodies for you, I'll leave you with some retail therapy I recently underwent to help lift my mood. None of them have arrived wait, but I can't wait to get my grubby little hands on them!
Oh, how I love the view on the left...the fabric is just divine!
I love the simple lines of this 30s pattern
This coat is so elegant...though I don't think I'll get round to making it this winter!
The yellow and navy views are my favourite, I can see them really dressing up a casual outfit!
I love the pleats and neckline of this pattern...oh and the bow detail of course!
How sexy is this low back!?! I also want the black patterned fabric it features!
I like how this looks like a two-piece, but is in fact a dress
I can see the orange version becoming a summer staple...aaah, come back summer!
How lovely are these 1950s rose prints?!?
I love swiss dot and this grey one is so delicate-looking
I have a 1960s-esque summer dress in mind for this beauty
So, is the gloomy weather affecting your blogging in any way? What are you doing to lift your spirits...not hoarding patterns and fabric like me I hope...
