Happy Wednesday especially to our Queen of snoop, Julia over at the Stamping Ground who has been seen wearing her tiara this week and really looking the part.
My desk has seen lots of action this week and it's been very varied. Everything from a gorgeous Wedding dress to a Dr Who's scarf .....
The wedding dress filled my cutting table and I am in the process of shortening three hems on it....I always hoover and clean all the surfaces before starting a wedding dress so as not to leave and marks on it so it's half a days work just the get ready before I start [I make a lot of dust here in my sewing room].
The scarf really was something else. It was knitted by a young man who died aged just 31 and his sister brought it to me to be divided into three so that she and her two other brothers could have a scarf each made from it.
The original stretched at least twice the length of my sewing room and between us we managed to fold it into three which when finished were each more than long enough to make a really long scarf.
I really do get asked to do all sorts and it was so lovely to be able to do just what she wanted successfully.
So there you go nice and short just how the boss likes it [ for once!]. I have my darling hubby here all this week transforming the back garden so I'd best get back to the sewing before he catches me slacking hehehe. Have a great week. I will do my best to visit all who call in here in between my many and varied sewing jobs of the week.
For anyone interested I have a Giveaway over on my Sewing by Annie Facebook so why not pop over and be in with a chance to win one of my Memory bears. I will making the draw at 9pm Friday night......Good Luck x
