I am on my third cup of coffee already and it is only 8 in the morning. I stayed up late watching the Oscars. What girl could resist all those dresses! Despite being a tad dissappointed that our gorgeous Cate came away empty handed, there were still plenty of moments to enjoy. The lovely Marion Cotillard was so joyous and beautiful. Well done to her. But my favourite moment of the night was when Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova won best Music (song) for Falling Slowly in Once. And the sweet Marketa was allowed back on to say her thank-yous after being rushed off by that darned music. I am so glad she was given that moment in the spotlight to enjoy. Oh and what about Diablo Cody! Despite the dress she won my heart.
The funny thing is I never get to the movies anymore these days. So generally I have barely the faintest idea of who is deserving of an award anyway. But that rush and thrill of excitement and all that glamour, oh boy!
In between watching all this Hollywood fun I was sitting at the sewing machine turning a delicious vintage tablecloth into this.
Maybe it was all the lovely inspiration channelling through the television, but this little Jayne has come out so wonderfully I am in love! The colours are fabulous and I had the perfect drill in my stash to use for the back and the facings. And the most wonderful vintage buttons to finish it off. I wish this was my size, or even Lotties, but sadly I only had enough of the drill to make a size 1. Oh well it is off to the shop on the 2nd. Luckily there is enough tablecloth left to make something for my girl too.
