Happy Easter !
Well, it has been some time since I last wrote on my blog - but I find I have no free time around the time that I have an assignment to submit (I am doing a Science Open University Degree). I have just submitted my first assignment of the year, only 6 more to go ! Boo !
I always find that I am more of a sometime seamstress from March until October as I am always so busy with studying, I shall be pleased to finish my degree for sure ! I have also been taking advantage of the slightly sunnier weather to get my garden all ready for sitting in as once the clocks have gone forward I like to be outside as much as possible, and I have managed to catch quite the tan !
I had a project all lined up for this bank holiday weekend, Simplicity 2451, a lovely skirt of which I have seen many lovely versions sewn up on the blogisphere, but when my pattern arrived on Thursday I saw that I had ordered the wrong size ! DOH !!
I am trying to branch out from Frankenstein skirts and wanted to make a dress this weekend, but the bodice muslin looks awful, so I think I may have to rethink my next project.
I have been making though... and will share with you a little later. I have also been busy making home made bias tape (without a bias tape maker - it's easy using an ironing board and a pin !) and have made and dismantled a second Sencha (after I played around with the neckline until I actually HATED it !). So although I have been quiet, I have been busy !
So, I will share with you a little later today some recent makes, and I also want to wish my blog a happy belated first birthday !! YAY - so call back a little later and I will have a little give away for you :-)
I have been keeping up with all of your blogs, my word you have been a bunch of busy bees ! You lot keep me sane when it seems I have no time to do anything artistic, and so for that I want to thank you !
Happy Saturday people,
