Il bel far niente…”The Beauty of Doing Nothing”

...a new favourite!

...I sent off about 15 new dresses this week!! was exhausting!

... but also very satisfying to see them all wrapped up ready to go.

I started to tidy my studio...

...AND I am happy to report that it is almost finished! Thank bloody goodness!!!!!

I have been sorting out my small pieces of fabric...

...pillow cases,

a fabric stack for my dear friend Jo (you will have this soon, I promise, xoxo)

fabric scraps, sorted by colour...

more pillowcases...

...and a cheeky gift for myself! I am in LOVE with this dreamy, dainty little necklace, found here
Late last night I was sitting up by myself, with a sleeping small person on my lap and a big person who had already gone to bed without me, and I thought what a perfect chance to watch a girly movie without any interruptions...

I downloaded "eat, pray, love" on the t-box, and settled in with leftover apple pie and a hot Milo. Good? yes!

Anyway, I am not going to go on about the movie BUT there was one scene that stuck with me, when she (Julia Roberts character) is in Rome, with her fabulous new Roman friends explaining to her that the Italian's favourite past time is doing NOTHING!!

How good does that sound?

I am afraid that I am a few weeks away from a day of nothing, at this stage....

Il bel far niente…”The Beauty of Doing Nothing”
