Good morning all.
My little sewing room has been a busy place this week -well, since last Saturday when I spritzed it all up neat and tidy for a house viewing only to be let down when the couple didn't turn up. Can you imagine - all that tidying and spritzing up round the house and a morning wasted waiting for them to turn up!! I was not a happy girl. But, I have to admit, it has been lovely to have such a neat, tidy house this weekend.
So what's been going on in my little craft room?
It seems that lots of folk are on the look out for Katie Morag style kilts.
I had a length of tartan polycotton so I have made one.
I might ebay it or maybe give it to my niece for her little ones to dress up in.
The stripey towelling is set out for another little project.
Maxine wanted a little hooded towelling poncho for Ben when she takes him swimming in the next few weeks. So we bought a couple of bath towels to do our own version.
Just in case you are interested...
This is the blind that I made for a friend's kitchen with that pretty chicken fabric that I showed you last week. (Jan - stop giggling!!)
It looks good now that it is up, I think. It was 2 metres wide so quite a tricky one to make.
If anyone is thinking of making roman blinds - I use the kits from Terry's fabrics and they are half price at the moment! I will be making more for my own place so ordered a few while the offer is on.
One or two asked for my ebay name so that they could check out my collages so I will email those kind folk once they are on. I have also been clearing cupboards and selling odd items of clothing and some of Maxine's button cushions. Most of my clearing out is ending up in charity shops but just sometimes it's worth popping a few things on ebay in the hopes of making a few pennies.
That's it for this week.
Thanks for calling by and for leaving your lovely comments.
Have a great week.
