Firstly, call me old fashioned, but I LOVE getting post, and especially any post that is even remoptely related to hats! In part because of this, and in part because every time I enter the shop in person I'm incapable of leaving without being several metres of silk heavier and a good £50 lighter (but it's all so beautiful!), this time I ordered from my favourite Broadwick Silks by phone.
[NB: To be honest it didn't seem to affect the amount I spent, but at least this fabric's for bona fide orders!] ;)
Imagine my delight then, when the silks I ordered for two commissions I'm working on arrived the very next day (yay!) with this super sweet note from the shop (double yay!)
All the silks are for my tried and tested / obsessively beloved silk roses: the ivory for me for Katy and Arno's August wedding, and the orange and purple for the two MOTB hats I'm working on.
Last but not least, this year's Glastonbury headband is all set for adventure - the fairy lights are going on tomorrow and I'll be sure to get some action shots to show you on my return!
Perfect for a mud fairy I think you'll agree, and let's face it there's going to be no losing me, which is probably for the best!
And with that I'm off to make a list of lists I need to write (and then do - yikes!) before I go. If you need a creative fix whilst I'm glasto-gallavanting then there's no better place for a browse than Handmade Harbour's Handmade Monday. See you in a couple of weeks! x
