My life seems to be a balance of the highs and lows of life....I guess we are all the same.
Today I woke early and treated my darling hubby and me to our breakfast in bed....not something we ever do to be honest so this was a real treat.
We are always up with the lark and aren't folk to lie in bed so were soon up and ready to start our day.....and guess what I did? :-( :-( :-(
I fell down the b****** stairs ! ! !....don't worry I haven't broken anything but I was made well aware of the saying 'the bigger you are the harder you fall !' It shook me up and I've twisted my replacement knee and the ankle on the same leg but I will live....I bet I find bruises later that I didn't know I'd got :-)
So, that's the bad news out of the way.
Here is the good news. My postman has just been with another amazing parcel from Twiggy at The World of Twiggypeasticks
Just look at it all...there is the most gorgeous fabric to make several dresses and lots of smaller pieces to trip up others plus trimmings, buttons and even a cow and sheep we can applique onto others. I am really so blown away at the kindness of others and both Twiglet [that much older sister of mine :-) ] and I are truly grateful at the support of each and every one of you who has been kind enough to support this wonderful cause.....we will keep sewing and making as many dresses as we can in the spare time we have....Promise :-)
Thanks Twiggy for this wonderful selection of materials.
Also I just want to show you the three little dresses I made yesterday.....numbers 33, 34 and 35.
These two little dresses were made with the gorgeous material Anne sent us. We have made smaller dresses with this so we get the full benefit from the gorgeous teddy panels.
This is also a dress made from Anne's pretty material. I've trimmed it up with a little of the fabric Wanda sent me and added a little appliqued dog on the front.
Can you tell just how much fun I'm having putting these little dresses together. Thanks to all who are supporting this wonderful cause. We will soon be ready to send Louise at Sew Scrumptious. another parcel of dresses [the last ones we sent her should be put on her blog soon :-) ].
