Helloooooo! It's the most GLORIOUS day here today! Glory, glory, GLORIOUS! Not too hot, not too cold, just right. Wouldn't it be great if this weather held for The Wedding tomorrow......................
Hugo and I will be watching it on the goggle box, with Hugo's family, it's going to be chaos, Hugo's sister has four lively children, and some of the adults are pretty lively too!
I was sitting in bed knitting this morning, my cup of tea on the bedside table, pondering what I'll be wearing tomorrow. The dress code is red, white and blue. I thought about the colours of the clothes I own, and whether it should be jeans, playing it down sort of thing, or (light bulb moment!) play it up and go smart, by wearing a HAT! I'm going to go the whole hog and wear a hat, a dress, and high heels (which I rarely wear, I can barely manage a waddling walk in high heels, with my bum sticking out. Elegant high heel wearing takes practise). So I phoned Hugo's mum and told her I'd be dressing smart and wearing a hat (it's actually my sun hat), and she thought it was a fantastic idea. I think all the ladies will now be wearing hats.
It's going to be very amusing, think of a gaggle of us, sitting on the sofa wearing smart clothes and hats, whilst watching t.v.
It may even be quite surreal. Lovely!
Amanda opened her salon, after starting from scratch, about six weeks ago, and it looks like the sort of salon I would love to get my hair cut in. She's really going with the vintage look, and it looks so friendly and inviting. I understand it's already a huge hit with the locals.
I was working on some Hares when Amanda asked me to make a piece for her, so it wasn't a huge jump of the imagination to think of hairdressing, and then Hare, and come up with Audrey, who you see in these photos.
I had a lovely fiddly time making the comb, scissors and cup and saucer filled with tea/coffee. I love fiddly stuff. And I love her apron, wouldn't mind a life size one for myself!
I hope Audrey has a whale of a time in her new home.
I have some cards left, enough to make up four packs of six cards, not seven this time. Some of the designs are slightly different, see the photo above.
They're in my etsy shop here.
Well I'll be off now, back to work, but not before I wish you a good weekend. See you next week, cheerio! Love Vanessa xxx
