I have my ticket for the quilt show and it's for Saturday - couldn't rely on anyone to sort out the chickens on the weekdays. OH printing off the e-ticket for me! NEC here I come! :dance:

 

My friend didn't want to go. :( But she has issues with her mum. Not dementia but brain problems after an accident and getting progressively worse, poor girl, so she needs to help her dad. What a shame she can't feel that she can have a break on her own - she'd feel so much better. :(

And it looks like the boy has a house and moving this Friday/Saturday. I'm a little hesitant until I know all's been signed, sealed and delivered! My room, my ROOOOOOOM!!! :dance:

Ended up starting to knit squares again...I seem to have done a dozen in the past fortnight, so it looks like it's going to be another blanket making summer!

I've turned a charity shop £1 skirt into a top, because the only broderie anglaise tops I could find were white and very short sleeved.

 

Skirt

Find a top you like the shape of and lie it over the skirt, both folded for a bit of symmetry :)

Cut out shape

and sew together!

I've hemmed it now, and am going to use a bit of the old waistband to put cuffs on the sleeves then I just need to find my bias binding to do the slash neck!

 

Sorry, photos are a bit big :oops:

:shock: Wow! That's the sort of thing I fantasise about doing, but don't have the courage to try ... that looks brilliant.

Wow just like that! You didn't even unpick the seams, I'm amazed. And it looks great :D

Thank you! Compared to the wonderful craft things you lot on here are able to create I thought it was a bit of a poor relation, to be honest.

No, the skirt upside down had all the seams in the right places to give enough shape, the curve of the hemline matched what I wanted for t shirt style sleeves too. I was pleased that the sleeves actually look OK as they are and hang well, despite them not being a separate piece of fabric.

 

I've got a nearly finished skirt from a toile de jouy Canadian bedsheet somewhere, lost in the house move at present, will post a pic when I find it :)

Oooh no not at all, never think that. Even first goes at things may not go the way you want, but anyone having a go at anything is something to be proud of. And you have made a unique shirt. Such a good idea. :D
