The Summer Dress - Complete!

I haven't blogged in a few weeks because I have been busy with work and some other bits, but I did get a chance to finish my dress! I wore it to the burlesque here in Manchester last month. Here it is! I'm fairly happy with it; it's not perfect but it looks OK.

I also got a haircut, finally. Here it is upon coming back from the hairdresser, where I got a cut and set under the hood dryer for £20! There was an old lady in there having the exact same thing done.

Here it is the next day. The set is less structured than I usually have it when I do it myself.

Here is little Scamp dog interrupting my sewing with his favourite trick. He loves to sit on his bottom like a meerkat, strange dog.

Aerospace boyfriend also bought me an aquarium. It now has a little group of tropical inhabitants, including three albino corys, a lovely betta (siamese fighting fish), and two African dwarf frogs! There were also some baby swordtails which had bred in my boyfriend's tank, but these unfortunately became dinner for the betta :(

Here is Sir, my male betta.

Some other bits of news to come in the next few days, but really I have been doing nothing but work! I can't wait to be able to have a break.
