Thursday was a lilac day...

I cleared my 'to do' rail first thing yesterday morning and, cos it was a wet day here, I had no customers during the day so I was able to remain head down making little dresses all day.   I managed to make 5 more taking my total now up to 32  :-) 

I started off with a little lilac pair and because my machine was set up with lilac thread I kept that as my colour scheme for the day.
Here's 28 and 29 made using fabric from a floral quilt cover.

Number 30 is made using pretty fabric with little dogs all over that was kindly donated by Anne.  I've trimmed it up with a little pocket that is trimmed up with a little of the fabric donated by Wanda......I waste nothing  :-)

Number 31 is made using pretty purple fabric with tiny hearts all over that was kindly donated by Wanda and I've trimmed this one up with red bias and pocket top with a little appliqued heart on.

Number 32 is made from the left over fabric from one of the tops I made for me and I've trimmed it up using the same fabric as number 31 was made of.  :-)

And to finish off my Thursday in just the best way possible we had a family get together and filled the house with fun, laughter, little girls and big girls with ever growing baby bumps. 

Here is one of the latest snaps of my gorgeous little granddaughters taken while they were on holiday in Cyprus.  Aren't they just beautiful?  :-) :-) :-)
