In a giddy spin

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


  1. That's so cute! Can't wait to see your retreat goodies x

  2. Lovely! I'm a big fan of bunting, and I'm making some this weekend to decorate the outside of the house for the Jubilee street party :)

  3. Oh Liz, such a great idea! I never made a bunting but my to do list knows I want to make one for many months now :o) Are the edges finished or raw? Who finished them? How did the kids design them? With glue or thread?!

  4. Wow, this is a darling idea, and those kids are TALENTED!!!


I can't tell you how much I love a comment. It makes me smile one huge great big smile.
