Made By Me #112

I made this dress with Valentines in mind though to be honest I will be wearing it all year round and love that it matches my favourite manicure.  I adore anything covered in hearts or heart shaped and never need an excuse to wear them!  I got the fabric on sale at Frumble but unfortunately they have now sold out and I haven't been able to find it elsewhere online to link you up.  I am actually looking forward to the big V day this year, I am going to meet some of my lovely blogger friends for lunch during the day then getting home to a meal that Gray will hopefully have cooked (I'm working on that one!) before snuggling up on the sofa and watching a film.  I much prefer a night in than a meal out on what can be the most forced, unromantic day of the year!

I am happy that the evenings are starting to get lighter and I am no longer driving home in the pitch black but cannot wait until I can get home whilst it is still light enough to snap some photos in the garden.  It is so hard fitting them in over winter and it feels like it has been really dark and gloomy forever.  I'm ready for more light now thank you.  Saying that the light wasn't great when we took these photos on Sunday afternoon.  Guess that also means it is almost time to get out in the garden and sort it out after winter.  Not sure I am ready for that yet!  Such a daunting task for two people who are really not green fingered, I might just stick to re-painting the garden furniture and leave the rest to Gray ;)

One thing I am really excited about is the new Orla Kiely collection from Clarks.  I am counting down the days and trying to decide which ones I really have to own and in which colourways.  They never make it an easy decision with so many cute styles.  I think I have narrowed it down to the tan Bibi (but the pink and yellow are awesome too, I am trying to be practical here) and the Betty.  Drooooool.

Dress: Made by me using Heart Print fabric by Timeless Treasures
Pattern: Emery by Christine Haynes
