This is what I have finally got around to doing last weekend. I brought the soft, fluffy fabric about three months ago to make our Daughter a PJ cape/dressing gown top thingie to keep her warm. She has two shop ones already. I made up my own pattern and sort of ‘winged it’. I had some yellow vintage piping to put on the edge that my Mum gave me years ago. It matches well with the minty green. I even sewed two vintage buttons on the front neck opening. Our Daughter loves pastel colours and pretty vintage things at the moment, to my surprise, but pleasure.
The main thing, is that I have started and finished it, yay and that it worked and our Daughter is wearing it already, even though it is not winter now.
I was hoping to get a days work today, but no, it is not to be, this afternoon I will be going into town to Kmart as they want to see me again about some possible Christmas work in December. I will see what happens. I have already been out in the garden for two hours pulling out weeds.
I want you to see this parcel that came in todays mail. A beautiful bunch of crystals and stones. They are so unusual and pretty, the photo doesn’t do them justice. I met a lovely friendly girl almost a year ago on a hilly walk I had done for the first time. She had done it before. She lives just out of Dunedin, she loves dogs, has horses and loves walking too. I have kept in touch with her via Facebook.
I picked up a very different jacket that has horses printed on it. I love it, even though I am scared of these creatures :) but it is slightly too big for me. I offered it to this young lady I met, I posted it to her last week, on our understanding that she would only take it if she swapped for some crystals, lucky me. I would rather give it to someone that loves horses than sell it. She loves it as much as I love my pressie.
It also came with a lovely card, on one side as per the photo it says ‘ I am a Yes Person’ and on the other side is this verse:
“If I dwell on what I don’t want, then I will get more of it. I affirm only the good in life”
I will remember this lovely quote, and try to live by it, especially in my difficult situation at the moment.
Finishing with a couple of pictures I found on Mr Google, shoes that I think are great but wouldn’t ever be able to walk in them. :)
