Why did the chicken cross the road?

I can't think of any good answers to that. I never really understood the point of that joke, in fact.

Changing the subject slightly, I finally wore my chicken print Emery dress. This is one which I finished off, and then decided needed something more, so I set about handstitching some sequin trim around the neckline and the cuffs, in a yellow to match the print of the chickens.

I think it worked quite well to give it that little extra something. I had to wait a little while for a chance to wear this as the weather had been so warm and whilst I didn't line it, I still find I can be too hot in sleeves when the weather is warm - it does get ridiculously warm in my office as well.

I will have more to say tomorrow, no doubt. I am feeling the effects of a relatively sleep-free weekend, and I'm getting ready for my last guide meeting this evening with the unit I've run for the past five years. Sad times.

  1. Oh Char, that is SO beautiful. Love the sequinny trim too!

    Hope tonight goes as well as possible and that it's not too upsetting for you all.
