Having woken up with birdsong and sunshine it was supposed to involve a camera, a boat or three and a vintage trawl.
Instead, I ended up unpicking the same seam not once, not twice but FOUR times!!!
From vintage lace.
Time consuming, fiddly and incredibly frustrating.
I swore more than once and missed the bus.
So - no boats, no vintage treasures and a distinctly uninspiring fridge.
Hence the marzipan.
I have a particularly dysfunctional relationship with marzipan.
By nature I'm more savoury than sweet, but where marzipan is concerned - oh my goodness!!!
I'm not buying it anymore...
And it completely zapped my energy.
However, seam finally finished I did finish the offending article, which was a snoozy groovy dachshund sleeve for an ipad.
As was the gorgeous crochet lace.
Brick Lane never fails to disappoint, and this particular shop is like stepping back in time.
Lace and haberdashery is housed in an antique cabinet with lots of tiny drawers and glass panels that wouldn't have looked out of place in a shop from the 1920s.
And the best bit?
