And then, and I kid you not, I dreamt how to fix it...and it WORKED! Not a stitch in sight!
I've also been block making this week, I'd forgotten how much fun / messy it is! This forties style pillbox is a really versatile block, but I originally started it for this trailing ivy design. I made the leaves a few months ago, originally with a silk hat in mind, but with the crisp edge to the morning sunshine last week, I'm feeling the Need For Tweed, and actually I think the contrast between the textures will be more interesting when it's done!
In other news, I tagged on the end of Sue Graley's table at Chesford Grange Perfect Brides Wedding Fayre last weekend, and it was much more positive experience than my first one!
There were three ladies in particular who I'm really hopeful will turn into orders nearer the 2014 wedding season, so it's a long way off yet but I guess the ground work all has to start somewhere!
I also decided to leave the pink simamay percher as it was, partly as a stylistic choice but mainly for time purposes, and let's face it - less is (nearly always) more dahlinks! ;)
It's currently living it up in Sue's shop as I type, let's hope someone falls for it like my mum did! ;)
So, that's in for another fortnight! I'm linking up with Handmade Monday as always so pop over and indulge your curiousity (slash nosiness) about what they've all been up to, and I'll see you in a couple of weeks!
