The weeks whizz round too quickly don't they.
As you will see from Wipso's blog we have both been busy dressmaking. It certainly keeps us out of mischief - as if!!!!!
So the machines have been busy this week and are still out on my table.
However, I have also had time to spend with M. crafting. She made the little beach hut collage in the middle of the table. Next Saturday we are hoping to get her Etsy shop up and running so you will be able to check out her other crafty makes then.
I spent a day making a collage for a friend. We made roman blinds for her daughter's stairway and there was a scrap of fabric left over so I created a canvas picture to hang between the 2 blinds. I hope she likes it.
In the bottom left of my photo you can see a tiny sweet tin that came from Ebay full of little mother of pearl buttons. Pretty isn't it. Also the little wooden cotton reels were my latest car boot purchase -
I couldn't resist them. How often do you see wooden bobbins these days?
And lastly... these are two of my latest little frocks made from fabric sent to Wipso by our kind blogging friends.
This pretty 70s style pink floral one was made using a sheet sent to us by Di.
It really is lovely soft fabric and looks so pretty. There is lots more fabric so Wipso and I will be busy creating different designs and sizes in this gorgeous stuff. Thanks lots Di.
This fabric started off white but I thought it was a bit impractical so I dyed it a dainty shade of turquoise. It is cool cotton "broiderie anglais" that came in a parcel from http://theworldoftwiggypeasticks.blogspot.com/.
Now for the wonderful Wipso magic moment of the week!!!
We often have a telepathic moment - she will ring me or I will text her with exactly what each of us has been thinking, but this one is a step too far!!
I was sewing and quickly set my machine for a pattern to trim the top of a pocket. (a matter of pressing buttons for menus and settings) I did so, and set off sewing, only to find, instead of a little flower pattern, which I had set - the machine sewed this..... note - a little row of A for Annie.
It couldn't possibly happen by accident - so I want to know how Annie is managing to use her remote control 12 miles up the road on my sewing machine!!
See you on the WOYWW blog hop. Have a good week and thanks for popping by.
