Three Gardens and a Seaside

I have really lost my interest in blogging  lately, I haven’t blogged or kept up with the blogs I follow for 2 months. Sometimes life just gets in the way, busy job, a holiday in France and elderly parents.

I have had a week off work and feel I have got things sorted, the house as had a good clean and de-clutter and best of all my sewing room has had a good tidy and been re-organised.  I have a new table for sewing, an old teachers desk, which great for cutting out as well as for the sewing machine……

I made New Look 6354, View A, View B and View E.

View E   The skirt is a bit short, so I made bias binding for the hem,  think this skirt will only be worn in the garden or on holiday.

.View A    These trousers are so comfortable, its like wearing your Pj’s out in public.

Here they are at Charlcote Park near Stratford on Avon looking a bit windswept, my husband is a very reluctant photographer.

And after visiting all those gardens it’s time for a relaxing Pimms at my favorite seaside resort Sidmouth in Devon.

Its been a busy and fun week, and I haven’t even mentioned the wedding yet, that deserves a post all of its own.

  1. I resort to the self timer which is why, despite being a photographer, my selfies are always so rubbish! We live ten miles form Tintinhull yet we’ve never been there – shame on us. Both sets of trousers were obviously ideal for travelling and sightseeing, even if the skirt can only be worn in the garden:)
