I decided to give myself a new pedicure last night, and chose this ancient nail polish I had called Litl (sic) Boy Blue by Artmatix. It's so old it has a price tag on it $2.89; now, Australians, when was the last time you saw a price like that one?!! I think I'm on some pathetically hopeful but ultimately misguided attempt to psyche myself into thinking that if my toes look frostbitten then I will, ipso facto, then feel cooler. Hmm. So far, not working...
Since joining Wardrobe refashion I think I'd better get on and refashion something in time for my weekly post, as per the rules, and I am a sad stickler for rules. When it suits me, that is.
Currently I have been working on my autumn trench coat, which will be finished prob by the end of today. Extremely happy with it and ridiculously proud of myself. I do feel like a coat/jacket finished successfully is like the pinnacle of achievement for a seamstress. Especially the setting in sleeves bit... (steam coming out of one's ears as one incessantly unpicks a multitude of little "tucks" for resmoothing and reshaping...) Enough said. Sleeves now set in successfully, so can leave that painful episode of my life behind.
