Trousers ! Trousers ! Trousers ! Trousers ! I had a new customer ring me yesterday morning asking if she could bring some trousers for me to shorten....what she didn't add was there were 10 pairs of them! So, guess what I'm doing today? To be honest they are already half done.
Yesterday was catch up Tuesday after another really fab fun day Monday. This is my 'finished' rail and you can see....I finished major alterations on a gorgeous turquoise jacket, put a button and buttonhole on the top of a pair of shorts, shortened 2 pair of jeans, took the hood off a hooded jacket and made a little stand up collar for it, shortened the sleeves on a coat, repaired a school jumper.....and half did the 10 pair of trousers! Oh and I stopped work at 3.30 to have my coffee with my friend who always calls on a Tuesday :-) [a girl's just got to have some fun too!]
This is what I would really like to get to play with later today. I have dyed some fabric pale blue to work a picture of crab apple blossom onto. I have 4 little pics of branches off my tree for inspiration and reference and have sorted some gorgeous fabrics in the colours I want to use. You can also see the latest poppy picture and little Candy clown insisted on getting in the picture. [You can see him in detail in the last blog.]
For the garden lovers amongst you this is the crab apple tree in all it's glory that is just outside my kitchen window. Isn't nature wonderful? I am surrounded by inspiration for my pictures.
