These weeks are flying by and here we are at another fun Wednesday link up with over 100 crafters who expose their
messy desks creative spaces to all who call by. I love Wednesdays.
This week has seen a house move for our daughter A, her hubby and their lovely family....long may they be happy in their new home [It's a rather gorgeous house they have moved to :-) ]. We had a lovely time Sunday helping them set up with a telly wall bracket, window blinds, plumbing in and setting up of washing machine and and tumble dryer......it's what Dads do :-) [Whilst I helped make lunch and played with my gorgeous grandchildren :-) ].
Monday morning was
totally wasted spent measuring curtain fabric for one of my customers to finally decide that we couldn't do what was wanted with the material she had brought.....big repeat of pattern, 2 pieces of same fabric but both different so patterns didn't match, insufficient fabric to match patterns to make double width curtains out of......yes, a nightmare!! An hour plus wasted and still nothing!! Guess customer won't want to pay for our wasted time. Now you can see why we don't like making curtains.
We did make up for it though and had another fun afternoon with our friend T. Thanks for the scrummy cake Jo. Both Jo and T created little characters with socks and I started to make another little rag doll.
Here you can see the chaos on my table this morning.
- 1 finished doll
- 1 new doll in the making.....blue/yellow fabric this time.
- 2 packs of Pro Markers used for doll face details [never used for card making though :-) ]
- 2 new pieces material [1 blue and 1 pink with teddies on] to cover 2 new 'V' cushions to be used for grandbabies.
- 2 pair of pink snippers [I'm never satisfied with just one :-) ...in fact I have them by every machine I use normally! ] , scissors, piece of tailors chalk.
- ball of wool used for doll hair.
I put curly hair on my little finished dolly but my girls didn't like it [comments about short curly hair were chuckled about!].....so I took it off.
Here she is with her new hair style and I have to agree with my girls that she looks much nicer now.......what do you think?
This week I've also made pockets for more little African dresses. I've now sewn them on and nearly made the next 7 dresses .
Here you can see that I'm hoping to sew the last of the bias strips in place today on 4 of the latest little dresses.
Well that's about all I've got to share with you today. I hope you've all had a creative week....I shall do my best to call by to see what you've all been up to but if I fail hopelessly then please forgive me cos life here does get rather hectic at times......hmmmm actually quiet moments are rather rare :-)
Please leave me a little 'hello' comment before popping over to visit our wonderful organiser, Julia.
Hugs for you all,
