Today... / Re: Sunday 18th August

Afternoon. I just got back on the train from my weekend away in Canterbury for my friend's 30th. A very fun pub crawl through our old uni town which started and ended with a BBQ (and fresh made pizzas in the garden pizza oven).

I was due to go and see my Nanny tomorrow, as a way to say a final goodbye to her as we were told she had days or maybe weeks left. Unfortunately she died yesterday at about 1pm. I was at my friend's BBQ when I got the call. It was very tough and I'm sad I didn't get to see her again this week but it is what it is. I was quite upset at the party but what can you do. I didn't want to leave and go home and be sad there, so I carried on and we had a good time. I felt guilty at some points for having a good time considering the current situation but I didn't know what else to feel. I don't think it's really hit me yet.

Just been to The Tip, which is always a bit of a challenge as it is divided into so many different sections that it is easy to chuck your rubbish into the wrong skip and get shouted at. Had to smile (in a very unkind way) when the lad in the next car to us heaved a huge cardboard box out of his boot and the bottom of it fell out spilling lots of small stuff everywhere!

Ottobre autumn magazine pictures are online. The outlines and colours are a useful guide to making an autumn wardrobe, although the colours don't suit me.
Too many wrap things, just can’t wear that style. I do however have that Frida Fabric!

Yes the zip problem is definitley down to lack of interfacing to stop the fabric from stretchng, but it doesn't need to be very heavy.  The stuff you have from bagmaking might be too much and end up making the whole zip area stiff.

It's a possibility - but pricy!  need to wait until Vogue are offered at half price.
