It's been silly weather here. One day we've got a heatwave the next it's thunder storms and long sleeve jammies at bed time. I'm not one who enjoys hot sunny weather. Give me a cool Spring breeze any day.
With the heatwave, I had no other choice but to dig out my old summer clothes. I hate the change of seasons as inevitably it means trying on last years clothes to see if they still fit! More often than not I'm disappointed but this year I have a little spring in my sunny step because my favourite summer skirt still fits. Hurrah!
It's a patchwork skirt from M&S. I bought it years ago, before the Wee Man was born, from an M&S outlet shop. I do love it so. I love the fabric on it. It is actual patchwork and not the cheap printed patchwork you find a lot of these days.
Every time I wear it I tend to sit and stare at it. The fabrics are so lovely. I have thought about cutting it up and making it into some cushion covers. I'd like to get more use out of it other than a few of times a year. But I just can't bring myself to do it.
What do you think? Should I keep it hidden in my wardrobe to be pulled out and worn a few times a year or should I get the scissors to it and make something with it? It's such a difficult decision.
