Apart from Sophie's new quilt which is still ongoing, I though I might make some bunting.  Every summer I am lucky enough to be able to spend some time at our caravan which we keep on a campsite in Italy.

The one nearest is mine  and the next one up belongs to my sister and her husband. Inside the awning I have a couple of units with proper worktop and have made some curtains to hide everything behind so it at least looks tidy, but as it is a home from home I have decided to make some bunting to put up.

I'm quite liking these fabrics from my favourite supplier of course, what do you think?

I'll let you know how it goes.

Another Dress.............

My husband also has a great niece who is 3, (we've obviously got to that age !) so I thought I'd make her a little dress, as she lives in Italy I decided to only line the bodice as she might get a bit hot, I still have a couple of bits to do, hook and eye at the neck and it has a lovely sash which I haven't yet made, I think the sash would look better in a plain contrast fabric so having a little ponder on that one !
I love this fabric purchased again from here, Brenda does have such lovely fabrics.

I also plan to make a little hat that I have a pattern for from the same fabric, think it will look
really cute.
Must get back to Sophie's new quilt, pictures to follow.

A New Dress for Sophie.......

It has taken me 3 afternoon / evenings of great concentration to finish my first little dress for Sophie, I am very pleased with the result overall, there are a few little things that I need to perfect but for a first attempt I don't think it's too bad.

I have sourced all my fabric from Favourite Fabrics, what a fantastic range Brenda has and very well priced too.

I hope Sophie and Kelly like it, what do you think ?

And a back view...............

Now to crack on with the other quilt that Kelly has asked me to do, looking forward to making my next dress though, have some more really lovely fabric for that one.

And just so you know who I am talking about, here is a picture of my niece Kelly and my great niece Sophie at her christening last October.

Until next time ..........
