I finished dress No 6 late last night. Here it is in the nice summer sun we have at the moment.
A matching head band and bright red ribbon bows.
This is how it started out in life
And this is how much is left of it on my desk early this morning.
The bodice part is still complete and will go to make up another dress using some white material
from my stash. The long strips are the shoulder straps so really all that is left is the 5 little scraps in the middle.!! Waste not want not.
Onto my desk later this morning.
Wimpey should have been going to the vets at 8am for a blood test but I had to cancet so he had a reprieve and breakfast and I had time to have a play with a few bits and pieces. Over at the Craft Barn they are running a challenge to make 12 Calaendar pages one for each month and I have decided to join in. It's all Neil's fault as I have been following the pages he has made on his blog and now I'm hooked. Got 4 weeks to catch up on though. Wkl (January) was a blue and crackle theme so this is the one I'm toying with here. The yellow pad leaning up is to guage the size I want the page to be and the Amazon packaging will be the sturdy backing. There are a few of Ann's lovely crochet flowers left that I have been using on the dresses. The pencil pot is destined to be a bird house but it got waylaid enroute! What else can you see. Oh yes the little arch shaped gadget is for switching on all my electrics in one go. So the compter, day light and sewing machine all come on together. Clever hey!
Playing with blue icicles and crackle paint at the moment. I sort of have a smidgen of an idea lurking in the background.
And just behind my desk hanging on the wardrobe is the next upcycling project. I love this dress but don't wear it anymore. It has two layers of flounces so I'm planning on getting 3 little dresses from it for the Dress a child appeal. If your very observant you might just spy a white square of paper on the notice board which has Wimpey and Wrappers weight written on in lb's. They have a few health issues at the moment so are being monitored. Next weigh in is on Friday for them.
Quite a long post from me today. If you want to have a nose around other crafting desks then why not take a smooch over to Julia's blog. Have fun. Tthe Boys are posted below.
