A happy little customer!

Remember way back in April when I blogged about two custom-made baby pinnies?!? Well I've been lucky enough to receive pictures of the cute recipient hard at work in the garden and little Lila looks like one happy customer!

It's a fine day for some spade action...


These pesky chains just have to go...


Weeding is a serious matter...


Uh oh! We're gonna need a bigger bucket...


The oilcloth pinnie was a bit long for Lila and the neckline sat a bit too high, but hopefully it's one she can grow into. I will also need to make the waist ties longer for any similar projects in future, but this kind of feedback is invaluable for my development. Thanks again to my encouraging colleague Jan, who has been kind enough to trust in my makes!

Anyway, must start getting ready for my trip down to London. It's the day of the Goldhawk Road Fabric Fandango and I'm excited and nervous at the same time!!! Stay tuned for updates on that in coming days.

Oh, and I just have to share my relief that Blogger is up and running again...I was getting serious withdrawal symptoms after day one...

  3. Hey Marie, was really good to meet you in person yesterday! I only wish we could have had a proper natter but alas the fabric shopping got in the way. I love your little aprons, and can't wait to see what you do with your Goldhawk Rd swag!

  5. Portia - wish we could have had a bit of chat yesterday too! Next time I'm down in London, I'll have to let you Londoners know so we can have another meet-up?!

    Dibs - thanks for being such an excellent team leader yesterday...I owe my bargains solely to your excellent haggling skills. Can't wait to see what you make with your mountain of fabric ;o)
