A house in our neighbourhood is being renovated, providing me with a wonderfully devastated landscape to borrow for my backdrop today. From this door I should be stepping into to the laundry and bathroom... both of these now residing in a huge skip out front.
Paradoxically, given this scene of dust and destruction, I am cleaning my own house today. Plus it is a waaaaarm day, so dressed for comfort and coolness whilst wielding a vacuum cleaner and mop. Hopefully I will have a little quality time with my sewing machine later...
Of the garb, this dress is soooo comfortable and will be great for summer. I like this pattern, but I'm so happy I followed my instincts and modified it to suit this fabric better. But now I'm dreaming of making it up again, this time to the pattern, maybe in a floral floaty, or possibly in a sheer gelato chiffon to wear over a petticoat. Hmmm, since I don't have either of these fabrics in my stash this would mean a trip to the fabric store, which I have sworn off until I have reduced the volume in my fabric cupboard by at least a few more lengths... sigh.
The shoeless photo is purely a gratuitous shot to show off of my handknit socks, and to show how meticulously I have co-ordinated my whole blue and grey ensemble today; thankyou for noticing. Actually, come to think of it not so gratuitous, as the boots do not participate when I am doing housework. Like most people (I think?!) I kick off my footwear at home and swan around either barefoot or in socks.
So, do you wear shoes when at home or, like me, do your feet go nekked?
