Well folks what a wonderful week last week was....for so many reasons.
The 9th blog anniversary saw me visiting everyone who had joined in the fun....even if there were a few I was unable to leave a comment on [sorry about that].
I've had a lovely week since with happy mail popping through my letterbox each day with ATC swaps.....
[from top left...]
They are all so different but each one was made with love and I will treasure them....just got to make a folder now for them to go in :-)
It was a really busy week for me with sewing too. In the 4 days I worked [I don't work Tuesdays as I often have little Theo to look after] I managed to.......
- Make 2 Memory bears and 1 Memory rabbit
- Shorten 2 bridesmaids dresses
- Put a concealed zip in a heavily sequined evening dress
- Shorten 3 dresses
- Shorten the sleeves on 2 dresses
- Shorten 4 pair trousers and
- Take in a bikini top
As you can imagine there weren't many spare minutes in my days but I love it when I'm busy and was really buzzing.
The one little Memory bear was made out of a school fleece jacket with a special label around his neck......I hope Ella likes it as much as I do cos it's really cuddly.
The other two were made in memory of a much loved sister. I really love the colour combination of these two and the lady I made them for loved them so much she would like me to make a cat to match them....so it's back to the drawing board for me to design a cat pattern.....
First draught of pattern.....will make one up now to see what it looks like.
You may see the finished cat next week....if it turns out ok :-)
That's all from me for today. Please leave me a little comment so I know you've called by and I will do my best to pay you a return visit ASAP.
