After I made this dress tonight, I went and treated myself to a delightful red thai chicken curry. On the way back from my feast, I saw the below scene of a sheep having a bit of a gentle read. Good on him…
I needed a powerful pop of colour this evening, as I must confess that tonight I found ‘making my day’ a bit of a challenge. Maybe it is the new addition of working everyday, or perhaps the epic task of getting everything sorted for the upcoming Yellowcake show, but my internal flower definitely started to wilt at about 7.30pm this evening.
I must have stared at the sewing machine for a solid 20 minutes before I started sewing the above frock tonight. I wasn’t thinking about anything in particular, but just seemed to slip into this state of gentle, meditative…exhaustion? Soon enough however, I rattled myself out of my foolish stare-athon and began my path to recovery by neurotically arranging some of my crafty possessions…
Anywho, I am now finally tucked away in bed so am going to take advantage of this happy scenario. I am looking forward to the weekend – Tom and I are going to candy warehouse on Sunday to get shiz for the Yellowcake show. Can any one say woooooooo???
So evidently I watched the Kony youtube video, and was moved to base tonight’s dress on the plight to make Joseph Kony famous…
I have been, like many others online, thoroughly inspired by the invisible children video that I watched tonight. I think the campaign is incredible – not only in its plight to get people to care about the atrocities occurring in Uganda, but also in its massive effort to rally people all over the world to passionately take action. Throughout the evening I have been watching the video spread like wild fire and it’s kind of exciting…I feel like I’m watching a real life V for Vendetta type scenario unfolding and I think it’s great. It just goes to show what social media can do…
So watch the video, donate to Tri…and make Joseph Kony famous.
Give me a scalloped trim any day of the week, and you will find me a very happy lady!
O, and after I made this dress tonight, Thomas came over and we played this:
Such pastel good times. What a happy bean I am. xo
Love this little strapless number, it reminds me of the below photo, which was taken many moons ago now! So many little red kitchen treats!xo
So I am pretty excited about the prospect of the weekend arriving! Saturday is bound to be buckets of fun, with my Yellowcake photo-shoot penned into the calendar. Everything is pretty much ready to roll for the shoot, including festive tights, shoes (can you say…pom poms??), dresses and props. I can’t wait to see the results of these last months of planning start to come together…and then it’s on to planning the actual launch party. YIKES!
Meanwhile, I don’t think that I have mentioned on this blog yet…but I have managed to find myself pleasantly employed since returning back from America. Whilst I was very much enjoying running Yellowcake fulltime late last year, I have to confess that all that sewing-solitude made me feel a little bit ‘lonely lady’. So as delight would have it, the wonderful label Faith and Lola invited me to join their team, and now I can enjoy the involvement in a most excellent clothing adventure in the company of other humans too. YAY!
And on that merry note I am off to bed. Also, I have to remember to buy blue-tak when I go out tomorrow…I just have to! xo
