No frocks this week folks!!!!
I posted my latest parcel of 30 to Louise, yesterday, and I am now busily catching up on all my other little sewing tasks.
On my table ready to go are about 100 little bunting flags ready to be sewn onto tape. They are for daughter M for a charity event. I think she wants about 30 metres of bunting!!!
In the bottom right corner you can see the set of cards with tiny patchworks which M made me for Mothers Day. I really love them. Thanks M! She loves being crafty but rarely has time these days.
The pic below is my kitchen unit top, covered in my car boot bargains. Loads of lace and crochet edging, ribbon & braid plus a 3 metre length of pretty fabric. I have been asked to make a few more little dressing up outfits so the fabric will be ideal for princess skirts.
The lace and crochet looked wonderful after it had been soaked, steamed and starched!
Now I just need to think of a few projects to use it all up.
Just noticed today is March 21st - my Grandma's birthday - she lived to be nearly 101 and was a wonderful lady and probably responsible for passing on the "sewing" gene to me and Annie. She was a very skillful seamstress in her time, working as a young woman, with her older sisters, in Shrewsbury in the 1890s.
Thanks to all who popped in and commented on my last WOYWW post. I really appreciate it and it makes all the effort worthwhile.
I hope our good friend and blogging snoop queen Julia is feeling a bit less grumpy today - I had to agree with all she said in her post yesterday and then I thought - "well that's two grumpy old women then!!" So I will pop over and check her out in her Stamping Ground and join in the mad WOYWW blog hop.
Have a great week
