Hello all. I was MIA again last week and if you check out my Friday post you will see why. I was determined to not miss a moment so make no apologies that I didn't have time for blogging....I just know you will all understand.....Theo starts school tomorrow so time was simply running out.
Since coming back from Wales I have been run off my feet catching up with work.....
- Did fittings and all the sewing needed on two bridesmaids dresses including 5 hems, taking in a bodice and taking one up on the shoulders.
- Shortened a lined dress
- Shortened a holiday dress and took it up on the shoulders
- Shortened another holiday dress and reduced the length of the straps
- Shortened the straps on a jumpsuit and
- Shortened a pair of gents suit trousers.
I've even managed a little time for playing with my paints :-)
I would like to share these paintings with you that our 11year old granddaughter Lulu has been doing. She is a rather talented young artist and I love to encourage youth with their crafts. She has a set of painting pens like mine but her mummy has just set her up with some acrylic paints and she has been painting these pics on canvasses...I think they are rather gorgeous too.
Sam and Lexi have been in isolation whilst Sam got over his Covid. He had signs of a cold and was rather washed out with it but he has now recovered and it was really lovely to see them both enjoying fun in their garden pool.
Whilst at home they both did a bit of wood carving and painted them all up too...Rather good too I think.
I'm sorry my desk was rather boring this week so I hope you have enjoyed seeing a little of the talented grandchildren's crafting too....it's such a lovely way of them choosing to spent their time.
I have another busy week planned...I had a customer contact me asking me if I can make her 14 Memory bears in memory of a much loved Grandmother who has just died and all being well the clothing should arrive tomorrow....oh happy days.
