She sewed so she can play

Today I made a waistcoat for my friend's daughter's dance show.  The fabric was given to me, ready cut out, however I think part of the instructions were missing as there was no guidance on finishing off the armholes.  Apparently there are no sleeves to be inserted, so I've left it unfinished for now.

And now, having done that, it means I get to play with my new toys.  I might be back later with some of the results

My next "investment" might have to be some ribbon.........

Oh sorry, I forgot - I MUST BE FRUGAL

Back in a bit xxxx

  2. Nice stash ;) Look forward to seeing what you make. x

  3. Jealous....I assume your sissix order came!!! Well done on the waistcoat...had a sneak preview on FB!!!! xxx


Some stuff about the stuff in the blog


Very new at this blogging lark, so forgive me if I get a bit befuddled. User name is derived from my maiden name of George and the fact that by the time the Olympics are held in the UK in 2012, I will look as if I could compete. And not as a sumo wrestler.

For starters there is only one blog with contain my thoughts, but this might evolve into 3 or 4 when I work out what I'm doing.

In the main it will cover my slimming journey, my quilting exploits, my get fit and stay fit campaign, and my photography. Not forgetting my recent TrollBead obsession.

Should I ever get a lovelife you might get glimpses of that as well.
