Something older and Something new!

Lynette Anderson has a giveaway for one of her wonderful patterns and Hugo and Felix are looking to view any of Lynette's designs made up from previous years...., so I thought I would show you this wall hanging that I made from one of Lynette's designs about 10 years ago, all I did was put the saying around....cos I love words on quilts. It is still one of my favorites.......Hope you like it Hugo and Felix
And the last few weeks have been really busy at home but I have found the time to sew and have been making some little clothes for my girls.....my boys wouldn't let me make them anything....you know what teenagers are like. It is so much fun too make little pretty clothes and the girls get excited to wear a skirt that they can twirl in....

it's sheer delight for me to see them twirling around
and then .................. I made this dress from an oliver + s design and it was so easy to do. The instructions were so clear and the pattern is wonderful to follow...not to mention the little cut out dollies you get with the pattern. Checkout here to see more designs. I have still to finish my smocking and will show it when it's done..( see previous post) just have to do the bullion roses.....and I am not that confident at them yet so I am practicing lots first.

Happy stitching everyone and hope you have a wonderful week,
Hugs to all,
Dawn x
