Dragging up my DIY's

Hello Lads,

I hope you've all been anticipating the return of the dotty but extremely sensible blogger. Me. Ammie. O Extraordinary one.

skirt: New Look (one of Sharrie's many gifts that suit my style but not my confidence) Statement necklace: Spain


Quick life update for all ye people. I went to the UCL summer school, congregated with some pretty cool kids and fell in love with the idea of going to Uni in London. I also went to the Globe to watch Macbeth and managed to drag some of the lads along- didn't tell them they would be standing for the best part of  3 hours which very nearly lost me several limbs. Ummmm started back at Sixth Form and, shockingly, left all my stationery shopping till the very last days. Dark Times I tell you.

Let us return to todays post. Here are a few bits that I finally got round to documenting. I managed to sit myself down long enough (thanks nan) to sew and do what I do best; MAKE LITTLE AWESOME PIECES OF NOTHINGNESS THAT NOBODY WILL BOTHER COPYING MWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAKAKAKAKAKAAAA.

I mean, regarding the clothes, not much to say. I reckon one can get away with declaring that one truly adores these self-made prendas.(That's Spanish for item of clothing, wasn't very obvious. Don't know why I included it. Or why I am wasting so much time dwelling on it. Or why, oh why, I didn't get an A in Spanish. Stupid 6 UMS). My favourite has to be the sixties-girl collared dress. Whilst wearing it, I have been called: a church girl, a 50's nurse and probably less complimentary things, but for me, I really only deserve to be called supremely cool. I got the pattern from my nan's ever-growing selection of vogue patterns but it could easily be found on EBay or wherever.

Well that is all from me and my sewing machine thus far so I shall go now.


Album that I won't leave alone: The  Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill
Thought that won't leave me alone: I can't believe that the genius bit of Literature which  is Nineteen Eighty-Four influenced Big Brother. Huh.
'I am never alone': Have Godly confidence in yourself and know that God can never use a discouraged servant.

God bless and take care lads
Ammie (:
