Thank you for visiting. I appreciate your time and if you can leave a comment I value every one. the weather here today is lovely and sunny. I hope it lasts because our daughter has invited the family around tomorrow for a BBQ to admire their new garden! She is coming over today to help me with the infamous dress! This project has turned into a real saga, what with having to change the size, adding length, adding pockets, not doing any dressmaking for about 30 years etc The latest problem being I wanted to add a buttonhole on the back of the pocket to thread the tubing of my insulin pump through (hence wanting pockets in the first place) I placed them on the wrong piece. Not a problem, but it meant unpicking the seam of the pocket and re-stitching. I just have two buttonholes now in each pocket. She's going to help me tweak the sizing and marking the hem - nearly there - Yay! I'm just a bit miffed with myself for getting rid of a beautiful dressmakers dummy thinking I'd never go back to dress making. If it's good enough when finished I may post a photo...
Thank you Hazel for the note about your beer cake - off to visit now
Today's oldie, inspired to post by Erika See here.
A friend was giving an iPad (Family group present for a milestone birthday) and wanted an appropriate card.. I found an image on the internet of an iPad screen on the internet. I used matting basics rectangles to create a black frame which I backed with acetate. The envelope was made using a sample of black wallpaper that looked like leather
Enjoy the rest of your weekend. I haven't got anything planned for today - just dressmaking I think. OH is on a late shift so it does mean that I am in charge of the tv remote!
