WOYWW

 Good morning all! Happy Wednesday!

My table today doesn't have lot to show really. The pretty vintage button tin has been filled with lots of vintage buttons ready to go on ebay sometime.
The pretty spotty fabric was a car boot bargain - I think it is laura Ashley - it has a lovely soft feel to it and may become little girls' jumpsuits - they seem quite popular again.

The cardboard box contains the 17 items of dressing up outfits heading for North Yorkshire.
Below are some of the "princess" skirts and cloaks which are now all packaged up ready to go.


 AND lastly......... Annie was given a huge piece of dress denim which we thought would make perfect little items for the growing babies. So, on funday Monday, I made a little pair of jeans and a tiny denim skirt. Once I know they fit nicely I shall make another pair of jeans for the other baby in the family and two bigger skirts for his big sisters.
Short and sweet today. I am hopefully going walking and out for lunch. Usually when I decide to go walking it pours with rain - fingers crossed that the sun shines this time.

UPDATE- My view today April 4th -  Snowing like mad at the moment -Walking cancelled then!!!!!


My view on Sunday April 1st











OK - let's pop over and see what the lovely badge sender Julia is up to in her Stamping Ground. I tried to visit as many desks as I could last week - apologies if I didn't make it to yours and thanks for all the kind comments. x Jo

Love the little jeans, I found some that I made in a box in the attic, I can't believe I DID once sew! I do like making little things! SnoW! Oh I hope we don't get any, we were sunny and even hot, but to day, although cloudy the sky is grey blue and it feels .c-c-cold! Have a lovely Easter, HaPpY wOyWw!

BumbleVee said...

You guys have had the worst winter and spring weather ....we had hardly any of what we are supposed to have. the world's gone topsy turvy it seems. We had +20C yesterday with lots of brilliant sun. today...+17C but, the weatherman is calling for snow later tonight...hmmm...who can believe him anymore? He's lied all winter to us....

I wish I lived next door to you .... I'd have my jeans and two other pairs of slacks hemmed in minutes... but, instead they've sat in my craft room for months....wonder if they still fit me anymore? ...sigh.....

MaggieC said...

What a change in the weather. It has only been trying to snow down here in Worcestershire, but it is pretty nasty out there. I love your little dressing up clothes and denim goodies. Hope they all fit well. Technology hit again today and refused to print out the colour chart for the Aquamarkers - doh! Thanks for your visit today, and don't get stuck in the snow. have a good week. xx Maggie #9

It looks like you've been very busy with sewing projects! And how fun to have wee ones to make things for. Hope your snow doesn't last long. Happy WOYWW, Laura #118

Princess Judy Palmer said...

Icky weather, you can just keep that, no need to share. Love the princess skirts and cloaks, perhaps this princess should invest in a skirt and cloak combo. I would insist everyone coming into my office bow down. :-) Happy sewing and stay warm!

Bridget Larsen said...

Great sew-er you are. Weather changes so drastically, it gives such a different aspect.

Fabulous work - love the thought of a button tin!!

Elizabeth said...

Hello Jo, such a shame your walk was cancelled ... the snow seems to have skipped over us and landed everywhere else but it is still freezing here. Love the cute little denims you made and those dressing-up outfits are adorable - someone is going to have hours of fun playing with them. Hope you have a lovely Easter. Elizabeth x #147

I stopped by earlier, but something on your site froze my computer. I'm finally back and loving seeing the snow, something we've not had this year. Happy Easter and happy WOYWW from # 6.

Gorgeous kids clothes. You're very clever with the needle.
The changing weather is pretty amazing although we are used to that in Melbourne. Often say to visitors...if you don't like the weather here, stick around for an hour. Hur-hur.
