It's so gloomy outside that my desk photo looks a bit cheerless too.
In fact, it's a busy little space with lots going on.
The pile of pretty fabric will be used for little cover ups and maybe a dress or two.
First of all, I have two little sillk wedding waistcoats to make. I drew up patterns from the one on my table and cut them out in lovely blue slub silk with proper waistcoat lining fabric to complete them.
Oh and can you see my tin of vintage buttons - I think I will be selling them as they are surplus to my needs.
Next is a little display of the 10 beanie hat/jumper sets that I have finished for the "Fish & Chip" babies.
I will put them together with Annie's and get them in the post to Dawn who is collecting them.
Lastly, after fun day Monday when Annie made 5 pairs of shorts and I made 3 little frocks for the "Dress a girl around the world scheme" (see post below and Annie's blog), I decided to help Louise reach her target of 50 pairs of shorts.
I raided my store of old T shirts and jeans. I always try to recycle fabric and hate throwing useful things away.
So the legs of the jeans proved just big enough to re-cut and make shorts. Having made 404 dresses we thought we should do something for the boys.
I think we have made a total of 14 at the moment - I don't think we will reach anywhere near the dress total but who knows!!
Ok - I need to get busy sewing.
Have a great day everyone. If you want to join our happy blog hop, then pop over to Julia's Stamping Ground and see what we have all been up to this week.
Thanks to all who left lovely comments last week - nice to hear from you.
