It is now that time in the summer when I take a glance around me and think to myself, How in the world am I going to get all of this done before school starts? I just have to hope that it will and try my best to get there. I'm determined, so we'll see how far that carries me.
In more optimistic news, I have been waiting for about a month to get some goodies in the mail and two of those goodies have arrived today! You might (or might not) recall a dreaming post I put up last December about a British shop called Cabbages and Roses and how I adore their clothes but couldn't buy them because they wouldn't ship to the U.S. (and they are very expensive). Well, they now ship to the U.S.! But before I discovered that, I found a few pieces on eBay and scored one.
It's a coral summery dress and I got it at a pretty good price! I'd love to be the kind of girl who can wear a dress from time to time without someone saying, "Why are you so dressed up?" I'm hoping this school year will be the one. I promise posed pics. With bangs. When I have time to get the bangs. :)
The Plucky Knitter for about a year and a half now, I think, and though I have often dreamed of sitting by the computer and continuously refreshing to hit an update, I am not that organized, nor had I had a project in mind for any Plucky yarn. Last month, I accidentally (I swear!) stumbled upon an update! I thought it was remnants of an operation that had finished earlier in the day, but, just to check, I ordered enough yarn in this gorgeous Glacier colorway to make Avery. The order went through and I now have Plucky Yarn for the first time ever!
I was really afraid that I wouldn't like the Glacier color because I noticed Sagebrush after I had checked out and thought it was way better, but now that I have it in my hands, I know I was silly to doubt! It actually looks like how I imagined Sagebrush would look in person, oddly enough. I still want Sagebrush. Next time.
That's the end of my excitement today! Back to school stuff. Are you waiting on anything super fun in the mail? Maybe you got it recently too. Tell me what it is! I have to live vicariously for a few months, I think, haha.
