I'm working hard on it offline, and it will be uploaded soon. It's so empty and ugly at the moment because I accidentally deleted the entire codebase and database a year ago. It'll be shiny soon, I promise. x Victoria

My sister gave me some sarong fabric for my birthday, and I've made a dress from it, following the pattern from the Japanese sewing book, Stylish Dress Book (vol 1), Dress E.

in Today...

  • Yesterday
    I was feeling unwell, and drove very badly home. Owen had a very good day at nursery, and was very happy in the evening too. So cute.
  • Wednesday, 27th July
    I had to go to a lengthy medical appointment during work hours and so had to work all evening to make up for time lost.
  • Tuesday, 26th July
    we took Owen to Little Wild Things, and this time his friends Rose and Joseph were there too, so it was more fun.
  • Monday, 25th July
    I went to Oxford to run some errands, while Peter babysits Owen in the morning. Did a lot of knitting while waiting for transports etc.
  • Sunday, 24th July
    we went to Witney to do some shopping and for Owen to feed the ducks. In the evening I started an emergency knitting project for a gift.
