Better late than never...!

It's funny when things turn up, that you'd given up on!  This amazing Japanese cotton canvas from Kokka, must have got seperated from it's friends on the way over.  Still it has been reunited and let the loving start!!!

Easter Opening Times

Forgot to mention this weekend's opening times!!!

CLOSED today (Thursday)

Sorry, we'll be CLOSED today, as it's another trip to the Fracture Clinic, with Skateboarder son! Hopefully, this will
be the final cast removal, with no more talk of operations!!
So to, what I've been sewing!  After tinkering away with workshop samples, I decided to use up some scraps from my stash. A bit of stretch lace, which had been a sash in the dressing up box, many moons ago and the off cuts from my last t-shirt! These became the Florence bra, from my favourite online sewing magazine:
I'm glad I made a toile to check which size to use. Although my family thought me crazier than usual, stood in front of the bathroom mirror, wearing a mock up bra with different sized cups in it!!!

Now what to make next...?
