T.G.I.F!



Ahhh, the end of an eventful week!  I don't think it was only the trees that were uprooted this week, I could have been forgiven for thinking I was as well! 

On Tuesday night, a massive storm blew through.  It wasn't a southerly storm like we are used to be a much more violent westerly storm.  It probably sounds all too familiar to those of you living in subtropical climates but here, it is reality unheard of.    We had gale force winds that uprooted trees and cut power, thunder storms that caused numerous scrub and forest fires, a bit of rain (thankfully) followed by humidity and warmth.  It did however provide a rare walk in the park wearing my summer clothing.  Normally at the very least at this time of the year, a cardigan would be required.  Oh, and this is the first time this year that my sandals have seen the light of day.  It is a good thing I busted out the nail polish on the weekend to banish my 'winter' toes!

The dress I am wearing, Vogue 1027, was made in Autumn and has been worn surprisingly a lot over the winter with a cardigan, tights and boots.  The shot of red has been nice to brighten a dull day.  The boots now have been stashed in the back of my wardrobe, in favour of shoes, and now sandals.

Now spring has finally entrenched itself, it is time to start thinking about my spring wardrobe.  There has been a lot of fabric acquisition's and even a little sewing, just not a lot of writing about it!

And pssst.....tomorrow is my birthday!  Weather dependant we are doing something special to celebrate.  Hopefully I will have time for a show and tell before the weekend is over.
