Skirt, Top, Swap and James

Firstly, a skirt that I made - perfect for winter with tights or boots. Made from a blackish stretch denim.


Next, a top from a Simplicity pattern that nikkishell raves about. I really like it and will use the pattern again. I actually cut up a previously unfinished top (Cass knows the one) and used the fabric to make this top which I will wear come Spring.


Next, the Swap that I received from Shibley - a little Hat pincushion (so cute) and Needle book and some Chocolate (a favourite colour for me) broderie.


And of course the pin cushion and needle book that I made for Andrea. Will have to make one for my Mum too, as she took a liking to it.



Finally, a recent picture of my boy James. He really tests me some days, but I love him to bits.


I apologise for not having proper links in, but I will try to come back later to do that!

Ooh, I love your skirt, I have a pattern and some fabric here to make myself one - I live in my skirts and boots during the winter (I feel daggy in jeans if I wear them too often) I also adore the top you made, it is so soft and pretty!

I adore that top! It's so funky! And I am jealous of you making big people clothes - I am still too chicken!
