Dug this skirt out again from the recesses of my wardrobe... I don't know why I'm not wearing it as often as I once did. I love it. I made this last summer; not the summer we've just had but the one before that. When I walk it twirls and swishes around my ankles in a most satisfying way, and always attracts compliments. This morning on our dog walk (can you see Sienna's furry butt behind a tree in this photo?) a lady crossed the street to say something nice to me about it... little incidents like that can give one a lift for hours, no? I'm going to make an effort to give more compliments from now on.
