Weekend Away

We are home from our weekend away and limited internet access, so I am sharing what I have worn for the last 4 days (10 - 13 June inclusive).

Friday was another challenge day where we had to be "on some form of transport". Due to my location and hours I work I drive to work, so this is the best I could do for this challenge.

Jumper/Sweater: Red Wool Jumper purchased from Jigsaw.
Skirt: Vogue 7937 in dark brown wool crepe (blogged here)
Jacket: McCall's 3750 in the same dark brown wool crepe made in 2003.
Accessory: Silk scarf from China
Shoes: Circa Joan & David purchased during my USA trip this year.

Saturday saw us in the snow fields and DH dutifully took my photo for me with some snow in the background to later realise that night that the memory card was not in the Canon camera so a picture on the bed in our room with the small Olympus was the best we could do.

Top: Cream t-shirt purchased
Skirt: Self drafted skirt in brown/coffee/coral linen (blogged here)
Cardigan: Simplicity 2603 in brown merino wool which you saw on Day 4.
Accessory: Me-Made crocheted necklace

Sunday was a day of complete relaxation for me until we had to start getting organised for the Group BBQ that night and of course the photo was the last thing we thought of.

Top: Kwik.Sew 3740 in blue/brown tie die knit from Spotlight (blogged here)
Jeans: Levi 553
Accessory: Me-Made necklace and earrings which you saw on Day 5.

Monday it is time for the long drive home, but first let's see if we can find an ugly background (another challenge from the group). This was around 10am this morning and it was a chilly 4 degrees Celsius.

Top: Simplicity 2603 top with sleeves in brown merino wool which you saw on Day 3.
Skirt: Self drafted skirt in brown/coffee/coral linen again.
Cardigan: Simplicity 2603 in brown merino wool again.
Coat McCall's 8522 in aubergine cashmere wool, fully fused, interlined with flannelette and lined with Sun Silky made too many years ago to remember.
Accessory: Me-Made crocheted necklace
Boots: Betts Boots
