Hillwalking and crafting

Well it was an early start this morning. Off up a hill with a 3 and 4 year old. Benarty Hill ( I think that’s what it’s called??)

Beautiful day. Sun shining, all wrapped up. Something about being out with nature that makes you feel good 🙂

Halfway up was a drink stop to recharge and take in the already great views of the Scottish countryside.

A New Dress

Well I woke up an thought… What to do? Turn a curtain into a dress for moi!! Why not. I used a pattern from one of my favourite (of MANY) craft books Sew La Tea Do by the fabby Pip Lincolne of Meet Me At Mikes. The too cute tunic dress. I am in love with this dress!!
