I am very happy for many reasons :) Firstly because of the wonderful surprise I got yesterday! I was 'sneak attacked' on etsy (which is actually a good thing) my shop was chosen and promoted on the sneak attack blog by the wonderful sneak attack etsy team (as my shop is fairly undiscovered by most)- and guess what- because of this promotion I made my first sale!!! I also found out about the whole scheme and joined the team do I can find out about other cool small shops and help get them noticed like they helped me :) here is the blog: http://handmademovement.blogspot.co.uk they were promoting lots of good shops so check it out for some good etsy gift ideas!
Secondly I got my papers yesterday to confirm that I definitely passed my first year of uni. Both my friends got into uni too! So good news all round and a huge congrats to my friends :-)
Thirdly I have made more progress on the red dress 1/2 scale I have had as a long term project at home. Here is how the gathering of the skirt is going, it was kind up a made up process of pinching and twisting the larger petticoat to gather it up to be the same size as the lining :) It is just like I wanted though and I think it is quite effective:
Fourthly (if fourthly is even a thing you can say? :p) I am enjoying spending lots of time with my lovely family! We walked over the 02 the other day. That was a cool experience. Here are some of the shots of the view. Walking up was actually quite hard it was quite steep (the walkway):
And I am off with my family to Lyme Regis tomorrow so that should be fun to explore together! :)
I hope you are all happy as well :-)
I will be back to chat with Al of you my lovely readers super soon,
