Happy February to one and all. Where do these weeks go?.....answers on a post card please.
Here we are on the best day of the week where we can link up with fellow bloggers all round the world thanks to our Queen of snoop, Julia. She really started something didn't she? Last week was another record for numbers and it is now getting so big that, unless you have many hours spare it is impossible to get round everyone. Alas I only managed the first 100 last week so many apologies to those I missed. I do try to pop in on as many as possible every week and to welcome as many new members I can find. I have to say I am hooked on the Wednesday activities and really love seeing what you're all up to each week. There really are very many really talented folk out there.
Now onto what you've really come here for....What IS on my work desk today?.....
This is the latest poppy pic I started on our Funday Monday...still got to finish dumfing and then bead the middles of the flowers before mounting it but I rather like how it's going.
My 'to do' rail is full with skirts and trousers all needing taking in cos this customer has lost weight and none of them fit her.
I have just finished altering this dress....it had far too much material in the skirt and too many gathers so I've had to detach the skirt from the bodice, remove 10" of fabric and regather the skirt and then reattach it to the bodice....it looks much better now so hope she likes it.
My WIP for today is a really beautiful floaty dress.....I'm having to take it up on the shoulders, take it in on the sides of the bodice [including realigning a concealed zip] and sew up the front so it isn't quite so revealing. It has several layers of fabric so it's pretty tricky to keep it all lying flat but I love a challenge :-) This lady runs a charity dance every year so I usually alter a posh frock for her for the event....this year she bought her dress in the sale.....too big but she knows I can make it fit her :-)
Thanks for calling in and for all your lovely comments. Hope I can find time to call back to see what you're up to....I will do my best I promise.
