Today there are three reasons to be cheerful. First, I've started re-reading Cold Comfort Farm by Stella Gibbons - I'd forgotten what an absolute delight it is.
Best of all, I've rediscovered Mrs Smiling, one of my favourite ever characters in a book:
"Mrs Smiling's second interest was her collection of brassieres, and her search for a perfect one. She was reputed to have the largest and finest collection of these garments in the world. It was hoped that on her death it would be left to the nation."
Which seems particularly apt in light of my last post!
Second, this month's issue of Love Sewing is out, complete with a baby blanket project written by yours truly!! Look! My name in print!! Yippee!
Third, it's St George's Day here in the UK which means get the bunting out, it's my birthday! Triple hoorah!
I'll be back with a finished dress to crow about as soon as the excitement has died down. In the meantime, have a wonderful day everyone. x
