Pfttt grown ups!

My girl is all grown up ,as she declared to me refusing to dress as I wanted her she said, " You know mum , my style is not the same as yours!!!"

Now since when does an 8 year old worry about style ................. She's 8 but really a teenager in disguise!

So out came my sewing machine and opened was my material cupboard and searching for the right pattern; my daughter and I created " THE RIGHT STYLE" !!

These photos are pretty bad , the tunic does look much better on !

...............And this one is still in costruction................ so far she likes it :) Hopefully she wont have another growth spurt before it's finished!!!!

The bag

You might remember this bag i posted about a while ago! It's finished and proudly in the hand of it's new owner, a lovely young lady who was looking for something original to carry her books to school in. I love it when people break out of the status quo !

Toile de Jouy hand embroidered for the colour.

I woke up one grizzly grey day recently and found primula planted IN my house!!!
Was it a fairy or a garden gnome that sneaked in during the night leaving these delightful promises of spring scattered here and there NO ,NO, NO, it was a man ; it was my thoughtful husband!!!!!!
