    fabulous dress janene, i love this on you. the fabrics gorgeous. i have something similiar in my stash. what a lovely gift your friend gave you. i got my dads partners sewing box when she passed away and it waa full of buttons zips needles etc which was brillant for me. mum also got me the biggest bag full of bindings rolls of lace buttons etc from a car boot sale. i was grinning like a cheshire cat for days lol. the weather is indeed lovely. i’m the same as you, i hav’nt many warm weather clothes so i’m making some. i go to spain a lot but i would’nt wear what i wear on holiday at home lol what i mean is i would’nt go down my town with a bikini top vest and shorts on here x

      Thank you Mary. It’s funny how we wear such different things on holiday. We might have to change our ways if the heat is to stay! ;-)
