Nicely balanced


Today's been one of those rare days where I've managed a bit of everything.
A gorgeous morning saw the old bloke and I take to the local golf course for a whack around 9 holes in the sunshine. We're hopeless, but we're not letting that stop us.
Then we stopped at our favourite local deli, Wickens, for the best coffee in town. We bumped into a couple of friends there and had a nice chat.
Then after a bit of lunch we took the hound down to the beach for a quick swim.
Home again, and a few hours at the sewing machine working with some great new fabric and I've finished a skirt that'll be making an appearance in my range soon.
This is a new hemp and organic cotton 'denim' I've been waiting to get my hands on for a while.
It feels a little bit like a cross between linen and silk, it's kind of crisp and smooth at the same time.
It's kind of lighter weight than I thought it would be, but perhaps that's a good thing? Good for warmer weather, and ok for Winter with some boots and tights.
I love the result!
If only every day went so smoothly!
