Yes and it's back to work tomorrow. It has been a busy time. The week before last, a few late nights were spent helping to sew outfits for my daughter and her friends who were going to the Wellington Sevens. I got the plum jobs (not!) of changing a top pattern into a dress pattern, cuting out, pressing hems up, ironing on the interfacing, sewing in the sleeves and doing the buttonholes- anything really that wasn't straight seams! Now I can get back onto my own things. I have been doing 2 little stitched blocks for the flood relief and this week I want to post them off and also finish 2 cushions for my Mum. I have to put on the borders and then do the backs.
Last week we thought summer was finally here- we had a morning of 35 degrees, and then a cool change came through and now we are back to waiting for summer again.
I thought I would try adding a picture, so found one of a table runner I had made for my mum. It is one from Viv's Creations and I put on a straight border. It goes well on the table and Mum was thrilled. A little trial and error and finally I have something I can share. A little more practice is needed both in taking the photos and in uploading them but I'll get there! I even cropped it before I exported it- crossing my fingers hoping that it would work!
