First things first! The winner of the four buttons from the giveaway celebrating completion of my Simplicity 4934 vintage pattern is Jacq C of the blog A Good Talking To. Hurrah! Jacq makes some lovely things, including a Tilly Blanket Skirt, and has a fab writing style. Check her out. Jacq, I’ll be in touch for contact details.
And whilst I’m talking of checking out blogs, may I urge you all to go visit Oz Viking who has just posted about a truly sophisticated dress she’s made from the pattern she won in Scruffy Badger’s giveaway. Any European readers looking for Autumn dress inspiration, this is the place to go. I’m always so pleased when Oz Viking posts, as she set up her blog on the back of the Pyjama Party.
Now, the Olympics! You’d have done well to spot me as I was up in the Gods. Not that this made a jot of difference to our enjoyment of the spectacle. Even for this non-engager-with-competitive-sport, I could see that the game was a really excellent, tight one. (It helped that my sister would lean over and say, ‘You know this point is crucial, don’t you?’) The match (game? who knows) was between Russia and Bulgaria and it’s safe to say, we knew who our immediate neighbours supported.
