I Remember now, I am a Sewing Blog

I think my poor little blog almost forgot that it was meant to home to sewing occasionally. It seems so long - Glen actually banned me from sewing for a week over Christmas to get some rest and to bed before the new day starts. I have been sewing madly for the Mathilda's Market but haven't quite finished anything yet, hopefully tomorrow. This is a cute little twirl skirt for Poppy with gorgeous Japanese fabric front, and anglaise sides and a spotty underskirt. I love it, but it is a little long and the waist keeps sliding under her belly, she really must cut down on her beer intake.

Oooh, that's very cute. She would look gorgeous in that (don't all small folk have little beer-gut bellies?!). Can't wait to see what you are doing for the Mathildas Market.

so glad to hear Glen enforced a machine ban even if it was only for 1 week.

BUT, can't wait to see what you are doing for markets!! Beautiful skirt, and all girls in my house have the belly!!
