Friday, on my mind!

I am all out of kilter this week, I think the man-flu, busy-busy and disco have taken their toll on my sense of time, and zapped my energy!

I didn't even link up with Cindy yesterday; I managed to catch up with a lot of blog reading, but commenting was a step too far.

My Inbox is fit to burst, so apologies if I owe you a reply, I will try to clear everything down over the weekend.

And now the Bloggers Quilt Festival has begun and I haven't even thought about what to enter!

This evening though I made a Staple Dress - well almost; the arm and neck facings are not finished, but as I made it from an old sheet, it basically looks like an old sheet; ('Are you dressing up as a Roman?' was my husband's reaction!), I might finish it, and give it to the kids for dressing up!

I made an XL, but a L would be better - I am not going to do the shirring, just belt it, it really is a super easy pattern.  I just think it needs a knitted fabric, and that is a little scary!

Anyway, I don't want to leave you picture-less, (my Staple Dress is not photogenic), so here's what is hidden under a little girl's pillow tonight, as her first tooth came out today...


I better go get my wings on; unfortunately, pound notes went out of circulation in 1984, so guess a coin will have to do!

  2. Haha - we had a 1st lost tooth recently and the request was for a two pound coin, the tooth fairy wrote back saying she only had 20pence pieces. I've been dressmaking this week and may have been slightly more successful!

  3. So exciting to have your first visit from the tooth fairy....is this the first twin tooth to fall out or has her sister lost one already?

  12. I am looking forward to seeing the real dress, making a muslin is alway worth the time.

  13. I don't know what image is funnier in my head...you dress as a Roman or in fairy wings. I hope the weekend turns out better for you.

  16. Sweet. Our tooth fairy wrote a note back saying that she was hard up and therefore could only leave £1! The boy believed it too! So when are you going to show us your dress? Di x

  17. Aw bless the tooth fairy left a note for my young niece in the flower bed when she had to have an emergency extraction at the dentists and a fiver. I know a whole fiver. But it was for an act of tooth related bravery. :-)
