Ella went for her groom today, which meant I had to go for mine. The hairdresser is around the corner from the dog groomers, so what’s a girl to do? The two of us do enjoy tripping down Upper Street afterwards, with Islington’s cool kids melting at the sight of a very fragrant little dog. Work that camera, darling!
I still had time to kill whilst Ella was being groomed (she’s much more high maintenance than me) so I popped to Loop to buy a blocking kit. It’s for the Pop Spots Shawl I began in May. Don’t faint, but the end is in sight and it will need blocking. These kits are huge! Any blocking tips? I’ve never blocked a shawl before.
I made the skirt I’m wearing, but am too disgusted with the whole process to blog about it. I sewed a pretty sweet dress, then hacked off the skirt section, added a second skirt section, hacked that one off, trimmed the bodice, ruined the bodice… In the end, out of desperation not to waste the entire process, I added an elasticated waistband to the first skirt section and called it a day. Lesson learned – don’t sew when stressed. It’s lovely fabric, too, sourced thanks to this Fabric Detective. Get some here – only £3.99 a metre! Don’t waste it like I did.
Tell me honestly. Whose hair cut is better?
