I was planning not to blog this week whilst the giveaway is running, but I'm just missing y'all too much.
There isn't much to show you. Or I should say that there isn't much of my normal sewing style to show.
I have a little trouble saying "no" to people. I really need to learn how to soon because I have been in a giddy spin, but with a huge smile on my face.
Being that sewing is a fairly newly acquired skill for me, (only a couple of years ago, sewing on a button was beyond me!) it still fills me with bubbly pleasure when people admire my makes. I am also completely honoured to be able to use my skill to help out at my little Dandelion's school.
Today I have been sewing a whole class's bunting flags onto tape. They have each made a flag and I am impressed with every single one of them. The children are only 7 years old but their creativity is impressive. They had all chose to use different fabrics; pieces which were probably once their granny's dress, a tablecloth or I couple I suspect were once heavy curtains. They were a bit tricky to sew onto the tape and I pulled my hair out when I ran out before all the flags were sewn! but they look fantastic now. I'm sure they will all be very happy with the results.
I have to dash now to take them in to school but I will be back with more updates later, including (I hope) pics of my finished swap samples for the Fat Quarterly Retreat.
Cheerio for now
