 Well folks - where did last week go?

As you know, I was busy sewing for Maxine...

Two matching Roman blinds

Then, a re-fit of her own linen basket for her room.

She dreamt up the design using curtaining and an inexpensive frame which had previously had fabric shelves fixed in it.

I was tasked to remake the hanging bag that fits inside.

I also made a plain small cushion cover too. About three days work in total!

Needless to say she was pleased with my efforts.

These are my latest festive twiddlers.

I have a nativity one to finish and then I will pop them down to the hospital so that they can be given out before Christmas.

I hope you are all staying safe and well and not suffering too much with this chilly, wild weather.

We are fine but I will be glad when it warms up a bit - or maybe just a few bright sunny days will do.

Have a good week all.

xx Jo

What a great idea to make a matching linen basket! Both the curtain and the basket look professionally made. Lovely new twiddler as well. Hope you're well, Jo. Happy #653! xx zsuzsa #14

It's 3 degrees here today, Jo, so I've little hope of it getting any warmer now. We even had some light snow yesterday. Anyway, love all your makes. The blind and linen basket are fab, beautiful fabric. And, if course, the Christmas twiddlers are amazing. They will be popular. Have a good week, keep warm and stay well. Hugs, Ellie x #16

I agree Jo, some bright sunny days would make the cold a little more bearable! Lovely lovely job on the blinds, I bet Maxine’s as pleased as punch, the fabric is lovely and her room must look great. Three days is super good…you can never be accused of not applying yourself!
