Today is Daffodil Day in Australia.
Like just about everyone, cancer has touched my life too. I have lost family members and friends. One close friend is a survivor. It's nice to have a reason to buy flowers. I would feel outrageously self-indulgent if I were to buy myself flowers on any other day, but today it feels right. These will sit in the kitchen and brighten up the day of everyone who sees them. And most of the proceeds are going to a very good cause.
On a fashion note; this dress may well get the heave-ho after Self-Stitched September. I still kind of like it, kind of don't... love the colour but the weird bodice has always been a problem. See how the model on the pattern envelope has her arm folded across her chest? ding ding ding ding! ... Something to bear in mind when checking out pattern photos in the future... I'm sitting on the fence about this one... but for today it goes beautifully with my yellow scarf!
