this book was just so great because it made me cry (happy and sad tears), made me happy and made me angry and sad and pulled out all the emotions that a great book should . i definetly recommend it as a great read!
on the sewing front.. the news is good (although i'm steadily running out of time before the formal). the lace arrived last Tuesday (which was early!! which i was quite pleased about!)
we (and i say we because my mummy has pitched in and helped me sew and cut and work out measurements, and fit our little mock pattern once it's on me, thankyou mummy! i love yoU!!!!) have to make a new lace overlay for the skirt (we cut it on the wrong angle due to the trickyness of the scallops! but luckily i had an abundance of material to play with)!, attatch the bodice lace to the bodice, attatch the skirt lace to the skirt, sew the bodice and skirt together and put the zip in. and theres theres just a little hand sewing. so fingers crossed i will be able to wear it wednesday night! it's been fun sewing with my mummy, talking eating chocolate and having some great mummy and daughter time! :) heres to our next sewing adventure!
i will post photos of the dress soon!
