Hello readers! I hope you have been enjoying yourselves lately. It's been a very chilly May so far - winter is so close! So it has made for some very interesting outfits lately. Sometimes I forget to wear tights when it's cold and sometimes it's too warm for a coat and I have to carry the darn thing around. The other day I completely forgot to check the temperature in the morning and walked out dressed for a 20 degree day and it never went above 16! By the time I had to go home it was below 11 and so I resorted to wearing my wellington boots home with my stinky gym socks to give me some small about of warmth!
The things you do for fashion!
Anyway, so here's how Me Made May has been going so far...
Dear readers, it came to my attention just this morning that today is May 1st! Here I was sending my boyfriend "It's gonna be May" memes and having a giggle thinking it was April 30th, when low and behold my lovely sewing buddies around the world instagramming their Me Made outfits snapped me back into line with the rest of us using Australian Eastern time making me realise that it was infact May 1st, and therefore Me Made May! I often mix up what day it is because I read so many American Facebook posts and they are a day behind timewise leading me to believe it was still April in this instance
Hello dear ones! How have you been? How was your Easter break if you had one?
Most of the country has just surfaced from a lazy 4 days off camping and sleeping in and what not. It's our last public holiday until June's Queen's Birthday holiday (No ANZAC day holiday, what a crock) so most people cherished their state sanctioned days off thoroughly, as did I
My days off were spent sleeping, sewing, watching a whole lot of free Netflix and enjoying a friends birthday at the pub.
I also finally finished sewing a purple paisley frock that I had started some time ago but never had the interest to finish quickly, largely because summer dragged on quite a bit making this dress unnecessary, but the cool weather is here now which this heavy twill dress will be perfect for.
I'll of course post proper photos eventually for you all!
I haven't done any kind of TV or movie review in a while. Frankly cause most movies I watch have been reviewed or maybe I'm just a little too lazy. But every now and again a little gem of a show comes out - one that so far is only being shown in Australia that I absolutely must tell you about because not only is a good story but because visually it's a feast for the 60's loving eyes! Last year a new drama show was broadcasted on Aussie TV called Love Child, and though I meant to blog about it then, the next series is due to start shortly so I thought it was prime time to finally write about it. FYI - So many spoilers!
Oh well hey there pretty people! I promised myself I would blog at least once a week this month but I'm already behind on that little promise, oops!
Not that I fussed about it really. Everything has been pretty swell no-blog wise. I've been doing lots of sewing and this past weekend the boy and I took a little trip up to Katoomba in the Blue Mountains for my birthday! We visited Scenic World which is basically the most touristy thing to do up there. They have a train thingy that takes you down the mountain on a 52 degree incline at a nice little speed so that you can actually look around. I had this idea that it was roller coaster speed but the ticket seller just had to chuckle at me and said they wouldn't let as many pensioners on if it was!
Hello hello readers!! How the heck have you all been? I've been having a lovely long break way from le blog to catch up on sewing and enjoy my new job which has been really enjoyable! My new boss is pretty cool and I even get to go out and play team football (Soccer) once a week, which has now resulted in a fractured second toe but otherwise, the comparison between my old role and my new role are streets apart. I'm feeling much more relaxed and I have time to do my job properly, not just squeeze 3 roles into one!
And so yes, all this life happiness has resulted in a tonne of sewing! So many things to show you all, but first I should try to catch up on everything I'm well behind in!
Last Wednesday was an event that couldn't be missed! So much so that I went by myself! eep!
The Art Gallery of NSW is currently holding an exhibit - Pop to Popisim, which shows as you may guess lots of well known art works from pop artists from the 50's through to the 80's.
AGNSW likes to hold events called Art After Hours, which usually involves a bar, some music and various talks from relevant industry experts. Throughout the Pop to Popisim exhibition they have been holding events themed by each of the decades featured in the exhibit. The week before was 50's and this week is 70's. And I'm sure you can guess which one I went to!
