........a cute blue and white dress.
.....a tea cosy of my own design inspired by my lovely friend Shakira during a very girlie, very crafty weekend here in Devon. With some other little patchwork thingies waiting to be sewn up.
And, yesterday I finally made a maxi dress out of some fabulous fabric my mum 'The Fairy Godmother' sent me for Christmas. I am off to Bali for two weeks next week, so I wanted to get it done by then. I have one more dress to do, and one day to do it in…. I’m not holding out too much hope. I have been spending my sewing hours doing other not so happy things of late.
Three work days and six sleeps to go until Bali. I plan on gaining many freckles, reading a book or two, spending a lot of time on the beach, and coming back with some lovely fabric to add to the ever growing stash.
Oh and as 2011 sees two of my beautiful girlfriends head down the scary road of IVF, and another friend with baby Hugo due in March, so hopefully there will be many lovely cute baby things made by me too.
So a Happy Chinese New Year to you all, and may 2011 be creatively prosperous.
