I didn't race today because it rained and we wimped out. Plus we never did get interest in a team (the wet weather saw only about a dozen show up). They went ahead and did ITT but it must have been lousy, I hear the road has some very rough bits. I promised myself a long bike ride, but it never stopped raining (it is still gently falling and it is cold enough you need socks!) So I finished the apron I started last night to wear as my costume to the Sing Along Sound of Music:
It does actually have stripes, but of course I couldn't find exactly the fabric I wanted, you never can. I looked at lots of images from the film, thought about it, bought a metre and a half of fabric and got stuck into it. My big sister will be amazed, we all thought the sewing gene had skipped over me, but I guess some things run deep.
Skirt from secondhand shop for $6.50, and I will wear it often because it is a nice cotton one. I think I have achieved Maria frumpyness! Now what to do about the hair... and no it will not get cut or dyed!!
