Finished silk shirt

Here are the pictures of my finished silk shirt.....I'm not that keen on it for all of the frustration I've had......I prefer cotton or linen if I am honest, I will wear it though.

From the back.

From the front.....there isn't anything more I can say about this shirt other than's alright.....not worth the money I spent on it.

My Garden

The flowers are starting to open in my garden so I thought I would take a few pictures, anyway we have the plasterers in the kitchen today so I am keeping out of the mess.

I have waited 2 years for this poppy, but worth the wait.

Another view.

My Clematis is just starting to flower.

Hostas and lupins.

Another variety of Hosta.

Sky likes to help in the garden too.

She is definately posing for this one.

I noticed when reading some blogs of the ladies in America that their Iris were in full flower, my Iris have just started to bud up. I can see a couple of them are ready to bloom.
I am finished my silk shirt, I finished it this morning while the plasterers were in. I am sick of this garment, I have made more mistakes on it than enough. I was really careful doing the buttonholes, stitching on the buttons and doing the hem, by hand, but I am not out of the woods yet! I tried to rub a few of the markings off with a clean wet cloth......some of them have come off but some of them haven't..... I have worried about this fabric until the end.....I will wear it a couple of times then rinse it in cold water to, hopefully, remove the markings then wash it properly. When I get myself looking respectable I will take a picture of me wearing it.
