Not clarice cliff tea cup & not tuesday...


This tea cup is not, although it does remind me of one, a Clarice Cliff. I love it none the less.


This is a new dress shirt that I made ready for my trip to Melbourne. The design on it also reminds me of a Clarice Cliff design. I love it, Chicky babe hates it! I am madly sewing and knitting in preparation for my trip in a week and a half!!! I have made a pair of wool wide leg pants, this top and have cut out a green velvety fabric to make an evening coat and have some purple stretch crushed velvet for a coat. I found some stretch lining too so it should be comfortable for traveling about. My knitting is about 3/4 done and is nearly as long as I am tall. I suddenly realized how ill prepared I am for cold weather.

I am also worried about the 'groovyness' of my wardrobe, having been told that Melbourne is 'the' place for art and fashion!!! I feel a little like the above teacup trying to fake a style and am a little worried I wont be quite right. I don't know why it is bothering me so much, I only know 2 people there anyway and I'm sure they won't worry about what I'm wearing!! I guess I feel a bit of a novice when it comes to this traveling caper and don't want to appear too green. Also I don't know how cold cold is in Melbourne it looks freezing watching the news reports of the temperatures!

Hmmm! This is a very flattering angle on which to take photos of myself. I must make sure I flirt only with very tall men in future! and make sure photos are taken from above at all times.
