New colours for the summer. Although I'm fairly sure that the recession has meant that the UK can't afford an actual summer this year! It can be the only explanation for the complete lack of anything that even remotely resembles summer or sun!
Assuming though that the sun is or will shine again, somewhere around the world, I have made some new brightly coloured blouses out of a really beautiful silky checked cotton.
The orange check has more texture than the blue check, but is just as light and summery (by repeating the words 'summer', 'sun', 'summery' etc I'm hoping I can wish Summer into existence!).
The blouses come in a green check and a pink check too, which are both also very summery!! Summery, summery, summery!!
For those of you not in the UK, who think I'm just being all British about the weather, have a Google at what our weather's been like in the last month - hailstones, tornado's, flash floods, torrential rain. Craziness!
