Happy Monday my lovely readers! I hope you've all had a wonderful weekend, I've been very busy and have been filling my time with family and fun things :)
Firstly, do you remember this fabric? I was worried that I wouldn't be able to squeeze a dress out of this fabric, and then a miracle happened and I found the perfect shirtwaist dress pattern! I am making the short sleeved version and there is just the right amount of fabric, phew! All my pieces are cut out and ready to go, so it'll just be a matter of time before I can take my book dress out on the town :)
I have also been knitting away whenever I have time backstage on the tour and my lacy cardigan it almost finished! I am totally obsessed with the colour of the yarn, I am head over heels over the colour mustard :)
I have also been cooking up a storm over this weekend. You may remember from my list of 24 Things Before 25 that I wanted to cook my first roast, and I did it! And this wasn't just any roast, oh no! I cooked a whole chicken and served it up with glazed root vegetables, my mum's recipe for perfect roast potatoes, yummy stuffing and yorkshire puddings made from scratch. To say I was proud of myself would be an understatement!
And as if that wasn't enough cooking for one weekend I also decided to do a bit of baking, namely this incredible Cinnamon Sugar Pull Apart Bread, which I demolished with my parents. It was delicious, you really should try it, it would be perfect for a girlie afternoon tea!
I hope your weekends were full of adventures of your own! What have you been up to, anything fun?
