I've been to Hexham today for a little look out as I'm not too well. I'm coming off some pills that take away neuropathic pain (which has been all but obliterated by my wonderful TENS machine), but the pills also help to stop spasms. As I've come off them I've started to have violent and painful spasms which seem to make my entire body seize up. They're completely draining me of energy so not feeling too good at the moment. The doc has given me some new pills which will help but I am in the process of building up the dosage so I have to just wait until the spasms subside.
Yesterday Jo popped round for a cuppa and I had a spasm as I tried to get up off the couch. I found the only thing that helps is if someone can push me back onto the chair and it'll break the spasm. We had a really good laugh when Jo poked me in the shoulder and I landed back on the couch. Its certainly a different way to spend the morning!!!
Anyway back to Hexham. I was waiting for the lift in one of the shops when I spotted this dress. Now its definitely NOT the kind of dress I would wear, but the trim on it is gorgeous.
There is this gorgeous beading around the neck which seems to be all one piece.
The shoulder pieces had 3 layers of lace, one vintage, one broderie anglaise and the third is made from the same lace as the main body of the dress.
The main body of the dress is made from a black lace fabric with a cream panel down the front and some broderie anglaise trim around the sides.
Once I take this to bits I'll be able to use it on so many projects (I hope!!), and all this for a fiver!!!
