Where did March go?

I have been distracted.... my attention has been centred elsewhere & you don't need to know any of the details but I did manage a great day out in London meeting up with other members of one of my sewing bees... Bumbling Honeys came out of my visit to the first Fat Quarterly retreat and I was so happy to meet up with them again after 2 years.. ( I missed last years meet..)
So off I set to Islington for a day of chat, eating and shopping.. we visited Raystich for fabric and Loop for wool (and apparently I 'enabled' in a handbag shop!!)

Although I have enough fabric to insulate a house I did have to purchase some lovely organic cotton and patterns to make the Fabulous Frida some clothes.. - a sneaky way to get swag past the chancellor, who is rather smitten with said Granddaughter FF.
So one afternoon I managed to make up this small pinafore for her to wear on holiday & took it out to Spain as we have just had a lovely relaxed week indulging in family time & tapas...
Here she is in her Charley Harper ensemble..... I think I'm going to be making a few more of these..


  1. It was lovely to meet up with you Teresa. Frida is adorable and the possibilities for sewing for her are infinite! Love the dress

  2. The dress turned out super cute.


Leave me a note to say you dropped by..
