It's a One Day Wonder!

Yokey Dokey

I've just pieced together some back yokes that I've been saving up for a while, I just need to back it to make it into a little throw or rug, I think I'll use some corduroy or maybe some..... denim!

Whenever I do a lot of hand-sewing I end up with a very sore finger with hard skin and lots of little holes from the needle digging into the tip of my finger - ouch! But today I had a break through, I persevered with using a thimble and with lots of support from my friend Bev (Ta) and her thimble (ta again!) I'm now able to sew without pain and blood spots on my work!

Toys For Girls and Boys!

I took part in a fete on Saturday in Dalston , it was an interesting mix of crafts, jumble, poetry, cakes, bubbles, rum punch, and music! I took along some of my bears and these rag dolls that I made a while back. A lovely lady showed interest in them and told me about a great organisation called People in Harmony, check out it's a 'positive, interracial anti-racist' voluntary, charitable organisation - Thanks Molly!

Check out these strides!

I couldn't resist buying these toddler jeans from Oxfam, they've got furry piping running through them, I can't help but smile whenever I see them! Do you think they come in adult sizes?

Feeling Blue?

Here are some jean pocket linings that I unpicked, I really like the different blues and the softness of the well worn fabric - mmmmmmm!

Sack Race Anyone?
