I haven’t been very blog active lately, mostly because I have my mum over and I’m trying to spend some time with her. So all the hours on the computer I have spend recently were mostly replying to the emails and doing lots of instructions writing and website re-building etc. But there was never enough time to blog …
My mum is great help when it comes to sewing … she’s happy to help with any small sewing job, so she has fixed several Oli’s trousers and little holes on Jasmine’s T-shirts etc. Which is really great and I’m grateful for it, because mending job is usually the last one on my to-sew list. ( It’s maybe because I read somewhere this lovely sentence: ASKING A QUILTER TO MEND A PAIR OF TROUSERS IS LIKE ASKING PICASSO TO PAINT YOUR BATHROOM!! Isn’t that truth??)
Anyway we also make things together and the latest thing was a bathrobe for Jasmine. I bought the material about a year ago and never found a time to making it. And so my mum got the task to actually make the bathrobe – cut it and sew together and I was the decorator. It worked just perfect!!
I took some colourful Daisy ribbon and cut the flowers individually, free motioned stitched some leaves and spirals in between, added some on the pockets as well and VOILA !!!
Thanks for reading
