Spring has sprung

'Ello. I was feeling in a rather positive mood the other day and convinced myself that I was totally capable of making a top in under an hour. What usually happens with me is that I get an idea, run through the making of it in my head and then just get on with it much like a Bull in a China shop. What I don't think about is the practicalities of it all and end up with something O.K but it's wonky or I didn't use the right stitch or I didn't attach a piece of elastic around the waist so that I can get the thing over my tits. As was the case with this top. Yes I managed to make it in under an hour but it's stuck half way over my boobs and it's ripped. Great. So I am going to have to do it again. But properly this time. So the moral of this story is: don't rush things. The end.

I have a compulsion to cut out and keep every single image I like from newspapers and magazines. I have folders full of random bits of paper and stuff that I have picked up off of the ground. So I thought I would scan some in and have a mess around on Photoshop.

Polka Polka and Smoking kills

So I found this old thing in a chariddy shop in Penrith. I really liked the dark blue spots on pale blue but the shirt was a mans dem and way too big for me so I did this to it:
