Hi all, it's been a while since I last posted - I've been very busy and not just with sewing! However, I have managed to finish a dress for me, then the left over fabric used to make another sewing bee blouse (Linzi, for your course info?). Am now starting a dress for my daughter for a wedding in May (still have mine to do!!!), and am starting to get a few alterations in again (Hurrah!). However, am too tired to sew tonight, as spent 4 hours laying paths and re-planting strawberries at the allotment this morning! Am now very sore! Finally, mystery project (to be revealed after May) is moving on a pace (and becoming slightly all-consuming in the process) - can't wait to post details of this one.... but not till June! Photo's of recent makes to be added soon!
well, hi all - long time no post! Have just been on a course learning how to use a Brother V7 machine - very interesting. And have been working at home on a silk top for me (willpost when finished). Also working on a secret project (more details later in the year - secretive huh!?). Tonight, have to sew a test piece for a top I hopefully will be teaching newby sewers to sew on the 19th March. Then tomorrow, finishing some bunting for a new baby's arrival. So bit busy at the mo. Hopefully, will have exciting pics on line soon
Ok - finished skorts (2 pairs of), adjusted green skirt, received advice on green stripy T shirt dress which I was unhappy with, received 2 new jobs in (skirt and 2 more alterations), cut out new T-shirt and completed paperwork for accountant this evening. Not bad for 5 days work!
Oh... and picked my first raspberries and strawberries from the allotment - hard work paying off?
have re-vamped my sewing room - has taken all weekend, lots of IKEA flat pack and no small amount of rude words!!! Finally have everything more or less where I need it to be - so let the creating begin!!!!
Once again, been a few days since I last posted. Am going to make mid-year resolution to do better!!! I have not, however, been idle in the mean time. Have completed 3 alterations, put in loads of hours on the 'Secret Project',,,(to be revealed at the end of the month), and re-homed a new dog (who is settling in beautifully), so have been walking my already short legs off. Photo's to follow in a couple of weeks
Hi Everyone, I have had a few technical issues with Facebook recently, which I am trying to resolve. (Arrag). Hopefully, I will be up and running more efficiently soon. - Watch this space!
Right.... I'M BACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It's been a while, since I posted anything, and this is because I have been super busy doing some sewing for a lovely lady (you know who you are). That has now ended, and I am free to try and get things ready for selling again (handily in time for Christmas!). So, watch this space...... photos and items to come now, and if anyone wants a bespoke gift, or memory item, then please PM me and we can discuss your requirements Love to you all...
Hi all, sorry it has been sooooo long since I posted anything. Have been very, very busy with work, personal stuff regarding children and finishing off (or as is actually the case, not yet finishing!) Christmas presents. I do hope that people want hand made stuff this year or I am going to have lots of stitched and crocheted items to find homes for! I will post some pics, but not until after xmas (or it will ruin the surprises!)For those of you who have been so supportive this year (you know who you all are!)).. my humble thanks - you are my lifelines in times of need. To everyone else out there as well - Merry Christmas and happy new year. We have bought a plethora of charity stuff this year instead of sending cards - so we have not forgotten you at all!!!
