What I am making…

Here are a few pics of my WIP’s…

1. Aprons! (This one is for you Ammy.) They are made from a set of funky sheets my Mum and Dad got as a wedding present 30 years ago!!! I found the coolest green grosgrain (?) ribbon, it has little white dashes along the edges. One down, 18 to go!!! (Excuse the wrinkles! I forgot to iron this first!)

Check out Ruby’s very cool wrists bands! I made them out of the sleeves of a thrift ed jumper i was re-fashioning. Ruby LIVES in them, she even wears them to bed! Such a Style-Queen, my girl!

2. I have made my first ever top WITHOUT A PATTERN! It is a plain black top, with a waist band, a hood lined in BRIGHT pink, stitched with bright green! I really like it. I just need to finish the arm holes. I don’t know if i should put little sleeves on or not. What do you think?

We have no water today, we discovered at 8pm tonight that our outside tap was gushing water! We think it has been doing it for a few days. We had noticed the sound of water in the pipes but, couldn’t work out what it was. So tomorrow i will be calling the landlord about that AND the broken dish washer! Oh man!

    Little sleeves will make the top wearable for a wee bit longer – these hot days won’t last forever!
    In fact you could even do bright pink long sleeves to attach inside the little black ones! They would also make you look less…..you know what we were talking about the other Friday!!!!!!

    That top looks great – wanna make me one?

    lovely top! I quite like it sleeveless… perhaps you could add sleeves when it gets colder, or just wear it over a long-sleeved merino top in winter.

    good luck with the water situation!

    i reckon wearing it over a longsleeve later is a fabbo idea.
