Eugh…not much of any use going on here.

::  I’ve been feeling decidedly yucky over the last few days.  Very tired, faintly nauseous, headachy and just generally off-kilter.  Nothing serious but seriously annoying. I’ve been sleeping lots and am slowly getting back to my normal self.  I’m having a quiet day today knitting and watching The Last Station.  Hopefully that will do the trick.


::  I hope that I’m back to speed tomorrow because the floral dress still isn’t finished.  I really need to get my act together because I’ve a few social events coming up this week and would love to wear the dress for at least one of them!

::  Having been very much inspired by Kristin and her recent birthday-present-to-self, I’ve jumped on the bandwagon and ordered myself an early gift.

Can we say….Lotta from Sweden?



I need to do a full post on these because I’m so delighted with them and the service.

::  The pattern sale is going really well.  Thank you to everyone who’s bought a pattern.  There are still a few left so please have a look and see if there’s anything you’d like.

::  Erin hasn’t been in touch about The Impromptu Giveaway.  If I haven’t heard from her by close of play on Wednesday, I’ll pick another winner.

::   My head is spinning with ideas that have come on the back of the Wardrobe Architect series.  I’m well aware I’ve not completed my series of posts, but hope to remedy that in the next week or so.  It’s be enlightening, to say the very least.

::  I’m currently (finally???) knitting Aislinn by Amy Herzog and using a Custom Fit pattern.


I’m really enjoying the experience and the cardigan is looking smashing.  I’ve done the sleeves and the back and am halfway up the first front, so hope to have a full review for you very soon.  I know that there’s quite a bit of confusion about Custom Fit so hopefully I’ll be able to shed a little bit of light on the matter.

::  My invigilating duties for this exam season finish this week.  I’ll be awfully glad to have all my time back to myself and plan to catch up with some sewing of the remaining stash.

::  Speaking of stash…I’m planning to get the fabric that I’m selling photographed and up her for sale, again within the next week or so.  Stay tuned.

Ok…so now you know that I’ve not fallen off the edge of the world, I’m off to the sofa for tea, movie and knitting.  The best cure I think.

Hope you’re well.  I’ll be back soon.

    Oh I’m sorry you’re ill! Hope you get your energy back soon. Absolutely love that cardi you’re knitting too!

      Thank you! I’m fine now. This cardigan is a joy. Whilst the weather is super warm at the moment it will be done by the time things cool down a bit.

  2. Sorry to hear you’re not well. Hope all the great plans make you feel better soon. That cardi is so cute…and I’m eagerly waiting to see the dress. Thanks for the movie tip!

      Thank you. I have some handstitching to do on the dress and it will be finished. I’m really happy with it. Pics will be taken very soon, I promise.

    Get well soon my lovely! Well be here when you’re up to it xxx

  4. Sorry to hear that you are feeling a bit rubbish. That sucks and I hope you are being soothed by the tea and knitting time. That cardi is a lovely pattern and I am really liking your Swedish has-beens. They look very fashion forward and comfy at the same time (which just goes to prove that such a mythical shoe exists). Get better soon 🙂 xx

      I’m better now, thanks, but tea and knitting is always super soothing.
      The shoes are actually Lotta’s…miles cheaper than Hasbeens, although there are some Hasbeens that I might just have to save some pennies for. 😉

    What a full post! Do you ever feel like going through your mid-40s is one niggling health complaint after another? (Disclaimer: I’m biased.) And I LOVE your new shoes! I want another birthday so that I can buy them too!

    • Evie says:

      It’s absolutely one thing after another. I’m sure I glow in the dark from all the x-rays I’ve been having (back, neck, knees…all buggered!).
      The Queen has two birthdays…we could take a tip from her….

  7. Hope you’re feeling better now – sorry I didn’t comment earlier, I’m still not getting your notifications 🙁

    • Evie says:

      I’m hale and hearty once more. I’m so sorry you’re not getting notifications…I’m not sure why. I subscribe via .gmail and Bloglovin’ to check that they come through and they do. It’s all very annoying. The notifications aren’t being stopped by your spam/junk filter are they? Darned technology!
