 Adorable baby sweet.  Love this one ...floral with pink frill.
This pink gingham is also pretty.
 This one looks kind of vintage with pretty floral motif.

I think I have made at least 2 dozen.......I just kept falling in love with them...

 Since moving to England 15 months ago I am drawn to visiting charity shops So I have decided to re start my blog by showing what I bought today for just £4.
It is a very pretty summer dress. I was attracted to the stripey fabric, a lovely nautical blue stripe. My intention is to use the fabric and make a couple of tote bags ready for summer holidays.  Otherwise it would look lovely with a red belt I think........St.Tropez we come.

 Just wanted to share with you my latest sewing project. An alternative christmas tree.

 I added a layer of padding and backed it in a plain material...then added small red ribbons here and there. I chose a gold bias binding to edge it all. Finally I sewed two thin strips on the back to incase 2 thin wooden batons ,one at the top and one at the bottom.

So lovely and bright....hope my customer enjoys it for years to come...

 Just finished cross stitching the first of two towels. Took many hours but worth it.
 I have made them as a present for a very special person.
 Hope to make myself a pair identical.
They look so pretty.
