Mum and I had a great day today ... shopping!!! Then we popped into the museum to have a quick look at their costume exhibits in preparation for module 3. I was very intersted in the shepherds smocks on display as a lot of my family were ag labs in days gone by and probably wore them. (This is a milkman's smock by the way, but you get the idea)
They are very utilitarian, and all of a colour i.e. grubby!! but what do you expect? I might be able to take this further, but am unsure whether to leave it until the smocking unit.
Hmmm Any suggestions?

This week I am away from home, mother sitting. Whilst we have lots of fun together I do miss my free mornings, when I can work on whatever project I'm concentrating on at the time. This week however I'm much more organised than usual. We are going to visit Worthing Museum to have a look at their costume and textile exhibits. I am hoping to find something suitable to use as a basis for module 3 of the C & G course. They apparently have wheelchair access to these areas so we will see. I haven't been there since I was a girl ***** years ago, and I guess that things will be very different this time. Hope to be able to get some photos to upload so that you guys can see what I saw!

Hi everyone, sorry I haven't done here recently but thought I would tell you about something that happened to me last week. We were in the swimming pool when my hubby said "look, there's a bird" I thought he was being a little silly as it was an outdoor pool, but I had a look anyway. At first all I could see was a leaf that had turned autumny early. The I looked again and saw a little green bird with an orange chest.
