  1. LOve the new hair colour! I must say though I think red it my favourite so far.
    My wonerful parcel arrived today, thankyou so much, it is truley fantastic! The stretchy lace is great, I think I know which project I will add it too alredy.
    Many thanks again. x x x

    • Yay, I’m glad it arrived safe and sound! 🙂 Looking forward to seeing what you make with it.

      Thanks for the hair colour vote – I have constant debates with myself about which colour to dye my hair.

  2. Asides from your lovely ensembles, I’m so impressed that you can leave work and go for a wander at the zoo! That red sweetheart dress of yours is truly gorgeous!

    • I’m pretty lucky with where I live – the zoo is only five minutes walk away. (Sometimes we can hear the monkeys from our house, haha!)
