Sun, sea and sand are three words that don't always sit happily together in the UK but this weekend was all of those. I finished my Pochee tunic just in time (I won't mention the lace underdress/petticoat that I made but couldn't wear as it was too weird and needs more work)
A bit posey, this is more like it
The Anna Maria Horner Little Folks voile is I the nicest fabric I have ever sewn with. It is soft and silky, cuts well, doesn't slip and is a pleasure to sew. This pattern is Diamond Mine pattern in Sky. It feels just as lovely on and was great for keeping lily white skin covered on the beach. I buy Pochee magazine from ebay and etsy seller pomadour24.
We stayed at Challaborough bay which looks on to Burgh island. The hotel there was made famous by Agatha Christie and is a beautiful Art Deco building. As England were playing on Saturday night we had the beach to ourselves
Damian taught Lula how to skim stones
All of us restored, rested and home.
