The sewingmachineguy has been here this morning. He parkes his van on the driveway carried my machine into the back where he has this lovely tiny workshop and repaired it on the stop. There was nothing really wrong with it. It was just plain dirty (I hadn't expected anything else). It was great service and it works like a dream!
I wanted to make a t-shirt dress for the daughter for a long time but when I found this supercute vintage curtain with tiny flowers I had to do it. So here come my first attempt. I love first attempts it is always a good excuse for mistakes!
It is a bit of awide tshirt but daughter has a adorable big babygirltummy so I need that space ;-) I think it is a bit big anyway, but she still prefers 'walking' on her knees to walking on her feet so we are not completely ready for dresses (she might start walking if I put her in a dress but that would be kind of cruel wouldn't it?)
One of the things I admired most in the beautiful work I was lucky enough to receive from Autum, is the way she uses so many colours and matches them in a way that is not busy in any way.. I'm not good with colour but planned on trying so I decided to try a quilted purse of my own..
Here is one of my arrangements so far (and yes I know I need a rotarycutter)
