A sunshine break


Hi I'm back from a break in the sunshine. But before the relaxing on a beach and reaching for a cocktail I had to endure the long haul flight. I used to look forward to plane travel but now I seem to dread it. To make the flight a little bit more bearable I stocked up on magazines, one was Country Living and it had a wonderful article featuring Merchant and Mills. They are a UK based company and as well as selling haberdashery and notions sell dress patterns too. I couldn't wait to order a pattern and today it arrived.
Even the packaging is cool. I'm so going to enjoy choosing some fabric for my dress but do I have sleeves or not? Decisions, decisions..........

No sleeves for the summer is my vote. Love the packaging. Glad the holiday went well.

It's been a while since we've had a long haul flight - not sure i'd enjoy it either! Looking forward to seeing your dress, with or without sleeves.

Your tropical photo brought tears to my eyes Amanda! It takes me back to when I was laying on Pink Gin Beach in Grenada in 1995 and I can remember looking up at the blue sky through the fronds of the palm tree leaves swaying in the warm breeze and thinking to myself, if I never have another tropical holiday, I shall remember this moment forever - and I still do! Thank you for the beautiful memory. ~Glen~
