April 26

I didn't realize how much I missed Vegemite until sister brought some on her recent visit. Fresh bread, spread with butter and Vegemite, and topped with gruyère ... perfect!

We had no guests for dinner tonight, so instead of spending the day in the kitchen, I spent it at my sewing machine. I followed this tutorial and after an unbelievable amount of trial and error on strap placement, finally got it fitting nicely. From the front, I think it looks pretty cute on, but from the side there's no denying I look pregnant. If I were to make it again, and I might, I would use a fabric with better drape. Foreseeing this problem, I did in fact use a pretty soft cotton, but I think it needs something even drapier. Or else I need smaller breasts. One or the other.

I need a good easy pattern for a summer top that suits my body shape. I'm not sure this is it. The hunt continues.

Great to see some pics of your days in the desert. I am back to work tomorrow after time with family. I admit to being a Vegemite addict but would never have your 'busty' top problems! Louise
