I'm brilliant at distracting myself with silly side projects when there's serious work to be done. Take this week for example, I've made three dresses, gone charity shopping and visited a car boot sale when I should have been organising my Kinky Melon stock ready for trading at Indietracks festival this weekend.
|This one's made from a vintage apron, a jumble sale 1960s curtain and some car booted braid.|
Which meant that I was running around the house like a nutter before bed last night trying to get everything in order.
The floor at silly o'clock this morning.
Poor Gilbert's groaning at the seams and we haven't even packed any food, booze or our clothes yet.
Thank goodness we've got a trailer.
In fact, I haven't a bastard clue what clothes I'm taking and we're meeting the gang in the pub in less than a hour. Oh well, I'm sure it will all come together in the end (although last time we visited Indie-tracks we left our holdall on the bedroom floor and had to live in our travelling clothes for four days)
What do you think of my show girl waistcoat courtesy of the fabulous Skye? I love this 1970s maxi dress but the jersey bodice is backless and completely transparent (which I didn't realise until after Jon had taken a photo of me out in it last year) so it's ideal for sparing my blushes - not that I'm overly bothered about flashing my boobs but there's a time and a place for everything and Asda at 9am on a Thursday morning ain't it.
Skye's adorable son drew this picture in my honour as he loved my soldier curtain waistcoat so much. It's now pride of place on the fridge, the home of all great art work.

Right, better get a jog on, pack my bag and look presentable before I incur the wrath of Jon.
Have a fabulous weekend and see you very soon!
