Sewing update....

It's been a different sort of week for me this week. I'm guessing a lot of my customers are on holidays this week with it being school half term holidays round here 'cos there has been a lot less 'traffic' through my door. I will say though I am never idle and have been working on some of my longer term projects. I have made 3 'waistcoats' each one a little different to suit different needs and am now onto the leather version...a rather bigger challenge but I'm sure I will get there and at some point I will show and tell [just not yet]. :-)




The little chair I am working on with my neighbour is getting there too. We have had 2 afternoons working on it but as a 9 mth little angel had to be involved it has to be done in stages. It's looking pretty good though and really just needs steaming and finishing off now so maybe one more session will see it finished.













I have also finished one of my felt embellished bags too and thought you might like to see it. I have had lots of interest in them and am really loving making them so please shout if you fancy one to go with that special outfit. I would aim to match colours as requested.

I think your Twiglet best summed it up - Wonder WOman! The bag is stunning, hope you enjoy them because I suspect you'll be making loads!

Upholstery too! There is clearly no end to your talents!
(I tried to make new seats for some dining chairs years ago but they ended up looking worse than the well-worn originals.)

blimey, aren't you clever!
I love chair and bag.
So, instead of having a well-earned half-term break you slog away on the non-urgent stuff. blimey again.
