This Sunday was our first wedding anniversary and I must say, I am so looking forward to many more years with my wonderful husband.
We were going to Long Melford for a medieval event and food fair (I was mainly into the food fair idea) but that got cancelled and we didn't find out until we got there. We spontaneously decided to go to Bury St Edmunds instead which was a great idea because it's a lovely place to spend the day. We had a little picnic in the gardens around the old ruins and just a wonder about. Found another sewing book in a charity shop....as if I haven't got enough yet. I wore my red polka dot dress during the day and got some cute pictures. I might consider that for my next made to order style for the etsy shop.
In the evening we went to a very nice meal in Colchester and I got to wear my latest dress out. It's a beautiful mint green brocade with bright pink flowers. It looks very shiny in the pictures but it isn't in the flesh. I burned it when I attached the bodice to the skirt. Right in the front/middle between the pleats. I was close to crying because I bought the fabric on my last fabric shopping spree to Walthamstow and didn't have enough to make another front panel. I fixed it by making up a bow to cover up the burn mark. It worked although I would have preferred the dress without it.
I went for a vintage inspired updo.
Tomorrow Dave and I are off to Germany for 3 days to go around the Nurburgring. I hope I can squeeze in some fabric shopping. Need to investigate where the fabric shops are in Koblenz, which is where we are staying.
