Blissful afternoon sewing…

Taking advantage of a well earned day off, I have spent a blissful afternoon with Esmeralda.

She has been so forgiving of my stopping and starting, huffing and puffing.

Finally after a few false starts..let me present.. vintage skirts for my grand daughters…

   
    
 I have followed  the Www.danamadeit.com you tube video with just a few alterations e.g seams were made using a mock French seam.

The material used was Cath Kidston Rosali from the IKEA Wednesbury store.

Crochet heritage

Last week I was given a treasure chest. A glorious collection of my late Auntie’s crochet bits and bobs. This collection had very special meaning, as my Auntie and my grandmother taught me to knit and crochet when I was a little girl.

   
    
 Since then, I have been in crochet heaven, sorting and sifting through my treasure.

I discovered yarn,  vintage patterns and hooks….the greatest find was some of my Auntie’s unfinished work. So I set to work sewing in ends and finishing (as best as I could as I am not skilled at such beautiful intricute crochet).

In honour  of my Auntie Pamela Noreen Loveridge I would like to share some of her work…
