The pattern has been delivered. I have fabric to make the pattern. I still need the zip but that is neither here nor there. I started tracing out the pattern this morning but have just run out of tracing paper. I need more to continue but even as I trace, my head believes that I cannot make this dress, for it is too difficult for me. I have little sewing confidence, I doubt myself at the best of times. I have not rushed out to buy more paper and a zip. I do not know if this dress will be made. Of this, I feel a little sad.
On a more positive note, for fear of depressing all and sundry, we spent the weekend oop-north as hubby was entered into the Great North Run. Saturday was spent wandering around Durham and Sunday was 'Race Day'.

Unfortunately we did not get to see hubby running his race on Sunday, or anyone else for that matter, as by the time we had dropped him off in Newcastle town centre then navigated our way (2 girlies and 2 dogs) around a very poorly signed diversion to South Shields, we couldn't get to the finishing line to see him cross over, so we waited at the family reunion area, under the flag of 'T' as pre-arranged to congratulate him on his success. He came in 10,283rd place in 1:57:33 which he is very pleased with. I'm glad he did it and am very proud of him.
I'm also getting on with my Tiny Owl Knits cowl. It feels like I have done loads but in fact am probably only a third of the way through! There are lots of ends to sew in but I am mastering the circular needles which had taunted me from on high for so long. I am no longer afraid!
Right, I'm away to ... well I don't know what to do... the non-sewing sewing has left me feeling a bit empty.
