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

  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?!
