What cute little doggies they are! I am sure your dogs will absolutely love that sprinkler this week. It is going to be a hot one here. I like your dress with the shorter sleeves too, it seems to sit better on you. Your boots look great - I have a brown pair about that length that I wear with jeans during the winter.


I agree the dress looks much better with short sleeves, I'm glasd those politicians gave up their seats, lovely photo of the opening and I, might have to make an Amy Johnson cake soon, thanks for the reminder. Though my new favorite food is date scones.


Oh, those emerald green boots! What a find!

I like the shorter sleeves too. I think the longer ones fell at your waist, and sort of hid it, if you know what I mean. I bet ou had the best dress there.

But no egg sandwiches! How very disappointing!


I love the swirly dress with the shorter sleeves. Can't wait to see the pretty boots with your jeans. The pups are being so cute even if they look annoyed at the sprinkler. :)


Shorter sleeves look great :)


love the emerald green boots - always fancy boots for myself but when I try them on I'm usually disappointed - they seem to look better on other people...enjoy !


I agree entirely with your shorter sleeved decision, much more flattering.

Can't believe the chairing situation at the Cancer Centre, you'd think they'd know better. We have a new Cancer Centre at the hospital here too, it is very flash and not at all hospitally. Wooden (or wooden look) bamboo flooring and nice green couches and cushioned chairs.

you would have thought that the people that organized the event would have had more chairs for the people that need them. but good on the politicians giving up their seats, even if its to look good ;)

awww what cute little dogs :D

sky is terrified of sprinklers :p doesn't get that they will cool her down :/


How typical of the able bodied to ignore those in greater need - but well done the pollies that stood instead! I can testify to the wonderfulness of the boots and the jeans, and also to the awesomeness of the bagsket. My huge yarn cake is very comfortable in there!

Fancy not giving you egg sandwiches - poor form indeed! (and you do look excellent in the skinny leg jeans!)


I think you are right about the sleeve length. The shorter sleeves are more flattering with this dress.

Shame about the egg sandwiches...I've had egg sandwiches for breakfast & lunch all this week. I can't seem to get enough of them. I have them with dijonnaise, salt, cracked pepper & dill.....got to have dill. Yum!

I'm so glad for Curly that he was rescued...I'm sure he'll have a wonderful life now :) Warms my heart!


your dress looks absolutely gorgeous, so which of the couple of dress patterns is this one? and what alterations did you do to it in the end? I have gone back over all your sewing posts but just can't seem to retain what you did with what pattern, I'm sorry, hopefully my memory will return to normal soon, I love your pear dress too, so summery
