I Am Cruelly Disappointed

My picnic was cancelled. I got an email this morning from the docent at the light house. I've been organizing these picnics for years and this is the first time. So now I'm all at loose sewing ends, without a deadline for this project it could languish. It was looking pretty promising too, wanna see?  
I was going to wear my new "Tissot" boots too.

And a little seahorse, because you know, seaside.
Maybe I'll reshape a straw hat, or start my Gatsby Summer Afternoon dress. Maybe I should pretty up this blog, if company is coming. It's like serving dinner on paper plates, if you are kind enough to come over I should have something nice.  Hang some curtains, throw around some pillows, put a lick of paint on the walls.
Still disappointed though.

Your Thimble Servant,
Miss Brilliantine


  1. I am very sad for you, but excited you have started blogging!!

    1. Awww, thanks Kendra, and this from the master!

  2. That color so lovely, you'll be the embodiment of a refreshing sea breeze.

  3. I just followed your link over from the Costume Pattern Review group, and just LOVE LOVE LOVE this dress. It makes me want to copy it, or better yet, steal it! Absolutely gorgeous color, and the lace is perfect.
