It's true: I have a thing for yellow...

So I'm lying in bed the other night, exhausted, just about to drift off to sleep, and Pearl says "Oh! I checked Georgie Love today, and you've only got 2 skirts left!". This statement, though
intended to make me feel good, cast me into a frenzy of anxiety. When will I have time to sew??!!I set to work making some VERY dark chocolate fruit and nut (line a baking tray with baking paper, spread chopped almonds, macadamias, coconut, sultanas and pepitas then drizzle with melted dark chocolate), which I proceeded to guzzle along with a half bottle of 1982 vintage Shiraz Pinot Noir, and Voila! Whipped out quite a few very fetching skirts, which should be appearing on Georgie Love very soon.
I couldn't help but notice the yellow theme, perfect for the approaching spring. I do so love yellow, not just in clothing, but everywhere. It's beautiful, and so enlivening, and makes other colours, placed next to it, look so rich and inviting. The amazing safari print was once a souvenir apron from South Africa, and is now rocking out as a pocket on a grey wool skirt. Gotta love a pocket, right? Especially one that's HUGE, has lions, elephants and ibex on it, and is edged with yellow rick-rack!
