Works in progress...

I seem to have unfinished bits and pieces everywhere...

The dressmaking course I started is going very well, and the skirt itself is almost finished.  I am quite proud that I have learned to top sew - IN A STRAIGHT LINE! And finished a hem with some bias tape *proud moment*!

My quilted throw has stalled, the free motion embroidery is taking aaaaaages, plus not helped by the fact I had to unpick a load of it, as I had sewn part of the backing that had folded back on itself.. grrrr...

But on the PLUS side, I have been working on some lovely mirrors I found at a car boot fair.  They looked a bit sad, to say the least, so they have been given a make-over, and I love them!

Vintage notions make over

My next post is going to include the pictures of my FINISHED items.  (Always helps to give yourself a deadline!)


  1. Know all about unfinished projects!! Somehow they always out number the excactly does that happen??!!!

  2. I know! Too much else to have a go at and too excited too wait!

  3. These mirrors look absolutely amazing! Could you possibly do a tutorial on them! I love all the different styles! XxxX

  4. Thank you! I love putting them together too. It's nice that each one is different! :)
