Hollyburn is finished and I love her. I still have not decided whether to add more of the bright fabric or not.
No photo yet but I found a smaller piece of blue fabric that was left from an old project and squeezed a skirt from it. I used the Delphine pattern from Tilly and the Buttons book, there will be a new book fairly soon so I will be having a look at that.
Once again I had to have a very narrow waistband, I quite like that as I do not need to interface, and I used a blue fabric to add inseam pockets.
That little blue bag on the floor is full of crushed walnut shell and it stops the door from banging into the wall.
I have plans to replace it with something prettier but not one of those white and metal proper thingies, far too boring. I will possibly make an Owl in some bright fabrics. That will give me a reason to use my die cutting machine, it has sat unused and neglected for over 3 years!!
Bad Pam, but it was a surprise gift, more of a shock really. It is a Big Shot Plus and I could not justify buying patchwork dies as I have a collection of rulers and templates.
Any how, I just wanted to keep you all updated and now it is time to walk Rufus, then I will be finishing off the Delphine before having a tidy up. I will need to get white thread back onto the overlocker/serger before starting the dress that is cut out, AND I completely forgot about the lining so it will be some white cotton lawn that is on top of the stack.
PS. I found a new podcast to watch, Gaga Knits. She is from South Wales and is on a learning curve. It is knitting, crochet and sewing with a bit of Mary Berry and some lovely shots of her gorgeous little dog. Number 2 has just been posted and both episodes are worth paying a visit to.
