I hope that blog post title isn't too boring to catch your attention. I may have posted a few colour blocked outfits recently, but I still love patterns - especially spots, dots, dashes, blobs, and lines.
I really really like graduated patterns which go from the hem upwards! Anyway, on St Patrick's day, I was in a dilemma about which green dress to wear (I have several) and I ended up wearing this one (which has spots and stripes at the collar and cuffs and the belt):
The dress above (a St Michael special for tall women) may be getting too small for me - or maybe its just my posture. In honour of St Paddy I also put a demure green streak through my hair and wore my green hair clips. I do have green shoes but I cannot wear them at present as my torn plantar fascia is still giving me a few problems (arch of my foot). The red shoes were chosen by my friends and readers via my facebook page. The silver hoop earrings were my all time favourites as they went with everything. During one of my Friday lunchtime catch-ups with my Dear Friend Lisa, I lost one and did not realise until I got home. I am now on a quest for a replacement pair.
With the Easter holidays coming up (combined with School holidays) I am hoping to do some more sewing. I keep finding awesome sewing patterns that I just have to buy. They are only a few cents each! They are green too, in as much that I can recycle them and use them, or use them to wrap gifts.
The one in the centre one is a vintage Vogue and I love the neckline variation. The Weigels (bottom row centre) is far too small for me, but I could not resist the cute picture. I did not realise when I made this collage that the name of pattern and the pattern number were chopped off, which is a bit annoying when I think that I am trying to keep a visual record of my patterns! Sometimes, I am just so keen to get the photos in a collage and posted I do not think about what things look like from the readers point of view.
Okay, its a Monday night, and a pumpkin risotto is on the stove simmering, cold roast lamb is being carved and I just need to cook some greenery. The fire it lit and one cat is positioned on a chair directly underneath the kitchen table (the roast lamb being directly above her). Her brother is throwing himself at the front door demanding to be let in. Silly cat.
Bye for now, Penny-Rose
