i still haven't located all of the needle, but as i sat at my table, watching my second 'sick' sewing machine in one week, i realized i am at a crossroads in my career (oooh, you have no idea how many years i have waited to say that word, not 'crossroads', the 'career' bit), actually, it is more like a 'T Junction'. i could turn 'left', walk away from a life of sewing on a machine, throw in the towel with dottie angel and admit defeat...or i could turn 'right', pick up the manual, take some deep breaths and start reading.
and so with no further ado i shall unveil my "i love you more than life it's self " door...dressed and looking beautiful right beside my granny's dressing table and my mum's stool
and lastly we have our guest appearance, now please bear in mind that she is shy, not very confident and is worried about making an appearance on my blog and in my little shop...so i give to you Flossie, my first apron dress, made from a cotton nightie and a bed sheet from the thrift store, put through some dye and embellished with odds and ends from my stash of fabrics...you can see her close up here and here...
tomorrow comes and brings with it, 'top tips' ~ Tif
