I've been away (i don't know if anyone noticed at all!)
I had to go to Seattle for work and took the opportunity to visit some different fabric shops.
I went to Undercover Quilts which had lots of fab fabric and some fantastic quilts

I also ended up in stitches, the ladies in there are fantastic, in fact i went twice!

I also did the space needle and the glass gardens
space needle

There were some native fabrics in the glass exhibition (kept me happy, along with all the coffee!)
I have a great time but now I'm pooped (i don't do jet lag very well at all!) 
I don't know if I'll get to blog again before Easter but I'll leave you with the thought that next time i blog I'll show you pictures of me in the dress i made for the conference!

Book day and a frock

 Well last week was book day, my lad was a pirate complete with dodgy beard and cardboard shoe buckles, and tiny was puss in boot!

 I'm quite glad they had dressing up on different days as it ment they could share a hat!

Other than fake beards i've been making a dress for me. I'm off on a conference soon and, for the last few, i've done my presentation wearing a homemade frock so thought i should carry on the tradition!
I've gone for this fabric (a liberty print i believe)

and so far it looks like this! (not sure why tiny or fat tulip needed to be in the pictures!)

Over the weekend i recieved a prize i won in a giveaway by the lovely christine
Tiny finally wore her cat frock
and it snowed (in march!)

Another cat dress

 Made Tiny yet another frock!
This time its a Halloween fabric, but as far as she is concerned it is purple and has cats on it! 

I went for a bit of a bodge job, i love the top of peasant dresses but Tiny is really skinny so the just look like a sac (I've done one before for her and ended up putting elastic round the middle tinys dress) so i added a straighter skirt. 
It required me to pop a zip in the back or she'd never get it on, but i think its come out OK.
