My creative space…

The dress is almost finished. I made had all the bits together, ready to sew together. But the top I cut out to go with the sprite skirt just seemed too overpowering.

 So the original top has been put aside for another dress, and a new top cut out and sewn on. Just got to add the apron sash/ties and hem the skirt (and tidy threads).

The almost finished dress

I’ve also been working on this for the last couple of days in snippits.

It’s a little block for an online friend’s baby quilt. There are a number of others contributing…and it was supposed to be with the expectant mum yesterday. Ooops! Express post here we come. My challenging week last week is my excuse for lateness and not doing any posting (the week finished with me reversing into a parked car at swimming lessons!).

This is a better week, thankfully.
