Champagne skirt

I feel really guilty at my major lack of bloggage recently, between exams, starting work, starting a research project, Andrew's gran dying and taking care of a friend's dog, blogging has fallen down my list of priorities.

It's been a hectic few weeks and it's my parents 50th birthday party this weekend, requiring another 8 hour drive down and then back again 2 days later. I'm really looking forward to seeing my folks but not looking forward to the drive at all!

Anyway, enough bitching, crafting life continues. I've been beavering away on a friend's wedding present (photos to follow), taking up trousers, making a hedgehog-handsfree kit (I'm going to leave you guessing on that one), finishing my late granny Dot's blanket and generally trying to get my life back in order after the craziness of late.

Here's a picture of the skirt I bought off Thriftstore using money made from my crafts *beams with pride*. It's so pretty, champagne coloured satin and it's a vintage handmade piece, it couldn't be more perfect!


I feel like I should take a moment to mention Tess, Andrew's granny. She was always really lovely to me, really interested in what was going on in my life and would always ask after me when Andrew saw her alone. She was one for crafting, she worked in the fabric section of a department store in Inverness for years and she gave me loads of wool and fabric, most of my stash came from her. She was so generous, she was definitely one of the main people who encouraged me to craft. She doted on Andrew and was obviously really proud of him. She'll be sorely missed ♥
