The good news: Stella agreed to be my Me Made June Stranger.
The bad news: She was late returning her book and I was forced to issue her with a 50p fine and a telling off.
Only joking! Stella was a good sport, and no mistake. So was the kind librarian taking the photograph of me living out my librarian fantasy. ‘I’ll stand here, and you stand there, and make sure you get the skirt in the photo, and I’m going to pretend to stamp this book…’ Urgh, bossy! We’ve created a monster, people. But what fun I had!
I’m wearing my Simplicity 2512 skirt. Yes, another wool skirt in June. This weather is crazy! At least everything in my self-made wardrobe is getting an airing, including autumn items.
Thank you all so much for your wonderful comments on yesterday’s post. I thought the day couldn’t get any better, then I rolled up at an exhibition at Morley College to see this:
That purple dress on the left? That’s my V8667! Here I am, looking like a proud mum when her kid’s just won the egg and spoon race:
How cool is that?
There were some gorgeous hats inside the exhibition too, made by students:
Right, I’m off. There’s another dress that needs finishing. Before I go, may I point you in the direction of this guest blog post featured today at Experiments and Accidents. It involves a certain someone making a fool of herself in public, as per usual.
By the way. Those library books collecting dust on your bedside table… You are going to return them, aren’t you? Don’t make me issue any more fines.
