typewriters and tarts :)




hello.....it's been a while I know... lots to catch up on but I'm not a wordy person as you know so I'll fill you in with some piccy's...

over half term we nipped off to the coast for a few days to blow away the cobwebs (boy it was freezing!) I loved it :) while away I found this very lovely typewriter...I love it so much I have unintentionally made a sort of shrine for it :)


then I did some sewing :)


a bit more sewing....


somehow one little owl ended up staying on the shelf...


...even more sewing...


a bit of Christmas crochet :)


spying my little shed in this lovely Magazine :)


and my little how to...:)



then spending a lovely day with crafty friends turning pillowcases into dresses



sewing, chatting, catching up and eating very lovely food and

 
 yummy home baked treats

( the dresses are for dress a girl around the world )

Happy weekend

  3. If my bag had been big enough that typewriter would have been in it this afternoon.
    If my boobs (and bum) were smaller I would ask you to make me a dress. Worried you may need a single duvet nevermind a pillowcase!!
    Lovely to see you

  8. Busy doing lovely things - how fab :)

    I've a friend who makes those dresses - she's made 100's now. Does it as a tribute to her daughter who sadly died of cancer the other year :(

    Typewriters seem to be popular again - we get them in our CS and they rarely hang around long.

  15. Gosh, you have been busy. What a wonderful project to be involved in making all those dresses. Need to see if my beginner skills are up to that but it looks pretty simple. And love the colour of your new typewriter, I would enshrine too. mel x

  22. Been searching for just the right typewriter for the last couple of years now, ever since I found out that my mum had thrown out the old one I used as a kid, she thought it was old technology - pah. Labels I want to type and detective notes that the Bun's need to write. We also have an old record player on our list and a Singer for christmas pressies. Be using a mangle soon if we get any more backward looking.

    Loved the wee dresses, bet you had a blast stitching them up with your mates.

    Have a great week lovely Jane.

  23. Lovely little dresses. What a fab idea. I stayed up very late last night determined to finish a bag I was making from your pattern in a back issue of Mollie Makes. It turned out a treat - thanks!
    Have a great week.

  26. Hi Jane, I saw a perfect blue typewritten in a charity shop last year for £5.00, unfortunately I didn't have enough money! I haven't seen one since, it's on my list of, Maybe One Day I Will Find.......:)
