Tie-front Dress Progress

I have finished the tie-front bodice inspired by the Pattern Magic books. I made it up in a reproduction 1950s style cotton quilting fabric. Just need to decide on the skirt style now. I'm thinking pleated or gathered.

Flying Geese Progress

Well I've made all my individual 'geese', now it's just a case of arranging them. I like the first idea below, but am trying other ideas before I start sewing.

Flying Geese

Just starting a new project... Again!!! Visited the Eternal Maker shop in Chichester, which is a textile lovers idea of heaven!!! All the quilting fabrics you could ever imagine and nice ones!! Not those boring shade of brown and beige we find in little villages.... I spent an hour putting together a collection of fuchsias, reds, oranges and turquoises, which I intend to make into a flying geese quilt. Check out my progress below:

Card Making and Stamping

Mum recently went to a card making workshop and bought some supplies. We had a lovely afternoon of crafting yesterday and I made some greetings cards and some tags for textile products I make.

Dar es Salaam

I recently visited a friend in Tanzania for a few days. We stayed at Mikadi Beach Lodge in Dar es Salaam and it was just beautiful. Blue, Indian ocean, blue skies.... and way too hot and humid for me coming from cold England!
