Summer DIY


The rollercoaster ride of summer is gathering speed..today will be the first day of wearing a summer dress all day long without a coat.  Bliss.  I would happily wear summer dresses all summer long – they are without doubt the ultimate capsule wardrobe.  I did my Atlantique Ascoli check and I have 5 cotton ones…so I’m on the hunt for 2 more to make 7 outfits for the sun ticked off.  They’re all I take on holiday now – simply blinged and pimped with jewellery and different shoes for the evening.

I’m also collecting together my summer craft box – a tupperware container with enough bits to while away the magic hours that only appear on holidays, when time seems to get stretched by the sun.  Last year we made macrame and friendship bracelets (even Charlie can rustle up a mean macrame)..and I’m sure we’ll make more this year..we got pretty proficient at sewing in chains and all sorts..

This year I’ve found this to add in..all we’ll need to add are a crochet hook, some buttons….


Maybe we’ll finally do a take on this…all I need is time..(and that little bit of child labour)……….
