So much happier today. Thankfully daughter's illness was a complicated migraine and not a mini-stroke. She had a lovely relaxing day in bed today and is feeling weak but great. I can now write a much cheerier blog!
I completed all the pretties for little Jasmine's bedroom, including a nice pillow cushion made from the cut-offs of the curtains and appliquéd butterflies cut from the ends of the bedding. I photocopied butterflies onto stiff card, cut them out and attached them to a strip of flowery braid to make a cute dangly. It's a real girly room.
I also made the splendid purchase of a vintage sparkly dress for just £2. It's too big and glittery for me but I hope there's a profit in it as a sale item.
Cakewalk Vintage had a request from a customer which produced the young lady below. Her smart, sober 50's suit is offset by a perky pillbox hat and lashings of fab red hair.
