Well it depends on the question but according to little son its not 42 but bacon!!
Anyhow - I've been asked several questions in the past few posts and rather than try and email people individually its easier for the less techie of us to do a blog post with some answers!!
Firstly my frocks - I make most of them myself and I use a really simple pattern - here's the last frock I made modelled by myself;
Looks maybe more clever than it is - here is my pattern;
2 pieces - one front and one back - the skirt measurements are 2 metres of fabric wide by 55(ish)cm long!!
My notes in my best scrawl - please note the title of the dress - the pattern is loosely based on a CK dress I bought several years ago in the sales - except the top part of mine is longer. I can do another variation with a tiered skirt - again the measurements are on there. The ties of the back are never the same each time - it depends on the fabric I have!!
The next question - the Photo Scavenger Hunt - its being run by Greenthumb @ Made With Love - all you need to do it find the current months list - take you pics and then post them at the end of each month. There is a linky on her page for you to add to if you wish. Anyone is welcome to join - the more the merrier :)
Well its been a good week - we had 2 1/2 days of spring! Tuesday was utterly gorgeous here - the sun shone - it was warm and everyone seemed to be smiling. I spent the day visiting various members of my family - starting with my Grandma, then lunch with 2 sisters, a cuppa with another and then I went and collected my eldest niece from school (won't get many more chances as she's off to High School this year). I ended the day with a couple of phone calls to friends and family! I love having so many sisters (and my little brother)- there's always one to chat to and catch up with :)
Two last things - I've found via Twitter a couple of new blogs that people might like;
One couple are attempting to buy British for a year here.
Another are shunning supermarkets here.
Both worth a read I think.
I think that's all for now - see you soon
