Last 3 weeks...

2nd April 2017

I didn't realise it was 3 weeks since my last post!

I had a brilliant time in London, catching up with family and playing with Alba and going for long walks, I averaged 14000 steps during that week.

The weather has been mixed here in Blackpool but this weekend has been really sunny with the usual cool breeze. Hanging washing out is a real treat so have changed all the beds, tidied the garden, done some cleaning and baked. Also been to the park to do some weeding.

In the autumn children from the local nurseries provided wellies and helped plant bulbs....


...these have been attached to the railings around the bowling green in the park and look great!

>>>>>>>>>>

Made a dress for Alba, so many years since I did any dressmaking, quite pleased with the result.....


...but as the Sewing Bee judges would say ''room for improvement'', I just hope it fits!!

I have been using ideas from my course, shells, embroidery and tiny beads on hand dyed fabric....


.....think these would make a lovely cards but would probably be damaged in the post, hand delivery only!

This was an experimental piece on organza with snippets of fabric free machined to the surface using shells, beads and embroidery to embellish....


....quite pleased with the result, this sample will go in my Seashore Sketchbook.

Have a good week......
