But I have had the chance to read through my emails and apologise that some of my pre-written posts were written in haste, vital info missing, sorry! So I figure it will be easier to answer the questions and comments here and be able to pretty much clear down my Inbox in one fell swoop! (Bonus).
Looking for Inspiration - 50s style
My 3 favourite books, and those I showed prints from were...
Patterns - Philippe de Baeck
V&A Pattern - The Fifties - Sue Prichard
1950s Fashion Prints - Marnie Fogg
All highly recommended.
Thank you Susan for the photo! I am so jealous of all you guys that got to meet up, and seeing all that Liberty Lifestyle fabric popping up in everyones' photos is not making me feel any better about missing out!
|Thanks matey x|
Thank you for all the compliments - this is going to be a whopping cushion - I will have to go onto eBay to find suitably enormous innards soon!
Simply Taking a Liberty more like! I want to get these purses made as soon as possible, it would be too rude not to! They may be international jet-setters but still no nearer to being made, sorry.
This is a free bag pattern to download, so there's no excuse for not printing the pieces and getting one or two made, if you are one of the few people left who have not made one already. Mine was invaluable for smuggling boiled eggs and assorted preserves from the hotel breakfast buffet!
Told you that game was fun! I average about an 8, but it does seem to be a little haphazard judging poor from very good, or maybe it's just my eyes!
For The Next Few Months...
Obrigado Tia - Estou tão animado!
Still so excited, I have two cousins with babies due before my sister, another boy and a 'wait and see', so busy happy times ahead; are we going to place bets as to whether the baby or the quilt are 'ready' first?!
I had to pre-warn Cindy not to read that post until the parcel arrived! But like it she does, (Yoda?), and it arrived just in time, so all was good!
Did You Miss Me?
And finally, shucks... you make me blush! I have to admit I have already gone stealth in catching up with some of the comings and goings in blogland, but hope to be back in 'real-time mouthy mode' soon, although I have to admit I am trying to cling to the holiday mindset for as long as possible.
I really do apologise for the lack of personal replies, but I promise I have read all your comments and appreciate every single one of them xxx
Right now, I need to think about getting on with my Stitch Tease strip and BQS3 parcel extras along with other less urgent things, like 2 tonnes of ironing and perhaps buying some food!
Mañana mis amigos x
