I've only ever made something from a pattern once before and that must have been about a decade ago! So I thought it was high time I had another go. The last wasn't terrible but wasn't exactly great either.

So together with my newfound enthusiasm and my lovely friend Virginie I hot footed it to buy some fabric to make some lovely summer tank tops.

My lovely fabrics washed in preparation whilst I stich up a practise piece

Piecing the pattern

I'm pretty snowed under with work so I'm not really sure when I'll be able to finish this off but I'm hoping it isn't one of those projects that never makes it off of the wip stack! watch this space as they say.

Now back to the work! I'll be reawrding myself with some lovely sandals I have my eye on and some home made bubble tea once assessment on Tuesday is done and dusted. YESS

Pizza Oven

So it's been a long time coming. I'm pretty sure I've been talking about building my own pizza oven for about five years now. So we finally bit the bullet and stocked up on supplies and spent our Sunday building one.

I consulted about a thousand different online instructables and tutorials and on the end opted to pretty much ignore most of them and jus have a go. I must have watched the river cottage episode where they build one at least ten times now so I was feeling somewhat qualified. We haven't baked anything yet as it has been raining for about 3 days which is making the drying out process even more long and painful!

TADA! here's hoping the Pizza is as good as I'm imagining!
