This week and next week I’m actually in the lovely city of York doing a work placement at the local paper, The Press. It’s classic local journalism at its best and I’m having a whale of a time.
Unfortunately, I’m without regular internet access and my sewing machine, hence the lack of posts this week! Never fear, I’ll try and get some done over the weekend when I get a chance to gander into the town centre with my laptop in tow. For anyone who’s visiting York anytime soon, the city centre has free Wi-Fi, courtesy of the council. Excellent.
I’ll write about my adventures in more detail when I get a chance, but highlights include meeting the lovely Tabatha of Thread Carefully in person for cream teas at the renowned Betty’s tea rooms (she even wore her newly-sewn Taffy blouse!) and having a go at Lindy hop earlier this week.
Oh I should also say now, I am planning to take part in Me Made May! I’ll update properly on my rules as soon as I get a chance. I’ll actually be in Brighton for some of it, how cool is that?
I shall leave you with the dress which has taunted me on my walk to and from the Press. York has more vintage shops than you can shake a stick at, and this beauty just keeps calling out to me.
Can you hear it too? Unfortunately the bank balance isn’t looking too healthy, so I may have to cover my eyes when I walk past tomorrow.
