Scrimping and saving, ranting and raving. Past retirement age but still working, permanently knackered. Trying to manage on a reduced wage, looking forward to the next dream.
Looks lovely! Is it for you or a gift for some lucky person?
Oh my word....that is just stunning.....you are clever-x-
Looks fab, it reminds me of a flamenco dress.
Sooze it is for my daughter, she found the pattern online and asked if I'd make it for her.
Such a happy-looking garment. A lot of love and hard work has gone into that.
At last I have found you again!!! I have come to you via Parsonage Cottage blog! That's a lovely piece of needlework, Hester!Margaret P
I can't imagine how you found the time to make such a beautiful thing AND buy a boat.What a week you have had.
Absolutely beautiful! Your daughter is so lucky. And how excited you must be about living on a pretty blue boat. I'm truly glad I found you again. Your posts always make me laugh - you are so good for my mental health.
Joy, the waistcoat worked up much quicker than I expected and I've really enjoyed making it.Trish, Margaret I'm glad both of you have managed to find me again.
It would be nice to see a photograph of your daughter wearing it
Wow Hester, that is amazing, and you crocheted it so quickly. You put me to shame. Love hearing about your long boat, good luck with the purchase. It sounds like a very exciting period in your lives.
Looks complicated but you did it up in no time!
Beautiful waistcoat. Loving the new heading "Hard up Hester Afloat"
