Inspired by The Sewing Bee

Have you been inspired to Sew? I have. I have always sewn, I used to make all our clothes. Dresses and skirts for me and Nicola, when she was a little girl. But just recently it just been curtains and bags, the last time I actually made something to wear was the bridesmaids dresses, when my daughter got married, 11years ago. Hobbycraft had a sale of some of there fabrics, so bought some nice cotton. The rose fabric is Amy Butler and was only £6 a mtr. I also found a tutorial on line to make my own skirt pattern, and I amazed my self that it actually fit first time.
The tutorial here.

Lady Golfer

I was asked to make a card for a lady golfer, I would have liked to have used a lady golfer stamp, but alas after looking and looking and even after looking at the the Hobbycraft show at the NEC, I came to the conclusion that it doesn't exist, and anyway I didn't want to go out and buy something I might not use again. I already had this golf ball stamp, so came up with a design which had a lady golfer theme. I think my friend liked it.

Birthday girl

I was asked to make a card for a little girl's Birthday, I must admit it is my favourite kind of card, so I made two, my friend liked them both. I used fairy stamps by Lili of the Valley, so sweet.
I have a couple of male birthdays coming up soon, which are the kind that I hate to make, just need a helping hand from Mr Mojo.
