SOS - Sort Out Saturday

This is what happens when you spend the week crafting and sewing without having a good tidy up as you go along!!!
M came over and we had a good time playing crafting and creating.
She made these gorgeous dumfed cards - seascapes, tiny moorland scenes and fab mini dumfs in silk/lace and yarns - beaded and buttoned. They are all mounted up on card and looking good.

I came back from Wipso's last night with my gorgeous velvet bag filled with scraps of tiny flower print fabric to use on my Montgomery collages. I must get down to making the last 4 in my 12 picture series.
My bag was in our blog shop Sisters Crafty Creations but I decided it was just what I needed for my little crafting or shopping trips.

We had a brilliant evening crafting while the men were at footie.
Best of all - we parcelled up 30 -yes I did say 30 little dresses to send to Sew Scrumptious for her "Dress a girl around the world scheme" that she is supporting.
We were like 2 school girls ooh-ing and ahh-ing over all the pretty little frocks.
Wipso made 21 - where does she find the time in her busy daily schedule???
So - they will be winging their way to Louise today, ready to go out to Kenya next month, I think.
Here are the last 3 of my dresses.

Such beautiful little dresses. The girls will be so thrilled to own one of these. How lovely! I saw these dresses in a magazine recently but can't remember which one. To make 30 is incredible! Congratulations

Wow Jo - these are absoloutely gorgeous. I wish I could make them too - they look relatively simple - but that would be to you two - it would be advanced work for me - I wish I could help in some way...

Plus some gorgeous creativity been going on at yours - lovely that M takes after her talented mum and Aunt...

with love and hugs
