Tumblr Thursday: April Archive

This is everything I uploaded to Tumblr in April. You can see the archive in more detail, here. Sometimes Tumblr takes me by surprise. I use the queue functionality to collect images that I like, and then allow the site to automatically post a certain number of images each day. This means that I never [...]

Somewhat unexpectedly, this was one of my Christmas presents this year. A box set of all eleven Doctor Who figures. They were held into their TARDIS-shaped box (it had doors! with velcro!) with forty-four little twisty ties, which gave me plenty of time to contemplate the little Doctors as I was wrestling them out of [...]

Ayten Gasson & Kiss Me Deadly

Picture © Ayten Gasson Remember the skull & rose print bra that I made last month? Well, I wore it last week. It was certainly a better fit than the first bra I made, but it still wasn’t all that comfortable. I have a few ideas regarding underwires, and I thought it might fit better if [...]

Violet Baudelaire.

Over Christmas we watched A Series of Unfortunate Events, the Lemony Snicket movie. We’d seen it before, but it’s a film that I’m always happy to watch over and over again, so that I can get a really good look at Violet’s costumes. There are so many things about the dress that I love. The [...]

Gone to a good home.

When I posted a picture of my experimental feather & fan scarf, Sara left a comment to say that she was coveting it. I have more scarves than I know what to do with, so it’s now hers! By a happy coincidence, she’d already bought the perfect scarf pin, for holding it in place. It’s [...]

More Knitting Inspiration

The latest issue of Vogue Knitting (now apparently renamed Designer Knitting) landed on my doormat this morning. On my first glance through, I’ve already spotted two things that I’m dying to knit. The giant yellow jumper is the Cropped Turtleneck, by Leena Sullivan. I particularly like the sideways construction with the cables, which is what [...]

I was browsing through the BBC iPlayer this afternoon, looking for something to watch in the background whilst doing a spot of hand sewing. I hadn’t realised what a lot I was missing!   The title above is a quote from a wonderful 1950s programme about fashion history. The series is called Men, Women and [...]

More brogues.

You know that strange phenomenon where as soon as you start to become obsessed by something, you suddenly see it everywhere? I was flipping through the February edition of Elle UK, and spotted these lovelies: I wonder what colour those patent Church’s brogues are in Real Life? Once again they’re Oxfords though, so I wouldn’t [...]

Happy New Year!

I still can’t blog about the piece that I’m working on at the moment – it’s a wedding dress, and it needs to be kept secret for another couple of weeks! In the meantime I will start as I men to go on, and talk to you about shoes. Since I received the Handmade Shoes [...]
