This week I have been mostly sewing and knitting!

Cue for a song...

Smocking on dresses and pictures with felting

Cute little sun frocks to stop Phoebe from melting

Collage on albums and cloths fit for kings

These are a few of my favourite things!!!

What a fun week of sewing, felting and crafts.

Phoebe now has two more smocked dresses and a little sun dress made trom the left over fabric.

I bought super, creamy fabric from Dunelm and made two huge table cloths and six napkins.

The sewing sister now has two pairs of posh trousers, which fit beautifully - and we didn't need to make a toile for them!!!!

Then, feeling creative, I made a gorgeous cover for a wedding scrap book for my niece.

Oh, and in the evenings whilst watching TV, I knitted two little shrugs for Phoebe and a friend's little girl.

Now I am wondering what to next - it's addictive I am sure. The buzz you get from making something for someone is wonderful and puts you on a high for days. Its very satisfying and does wonders for the self esteem.

Any ideas for my next project?

Very clever indeed - I bet you have a lot of fun making all those things. You're right it is very satisfying.

The happy couple will treasure that album.

WOW! You've been busy. I love those dresses, tooo cute.
V impressed with the smocking Twiglet something I don't have the patience to do - ditto clothes making. Well done you.
