its been 3 weeks since i blogged. i kept meaning too but being too busy.
Ok so - since i blogged last i have done making, been to the sewing show at the NEC and sewed a little bit more - 
so here it all is..........

One of Tinys teachers was leaving to have a baby so with one evening to get it done i produced a gift for tiny to take for her!

Went to the sewing show at the NEC, i got lots of cat fabric for Tiny (what a suprize) and saw a partial (91%) eclipse -

you can see its reflection from the camera projected onto the building - cool!
my friend @laughingsnail at BOM

She was doing bioprospecting - its looking at what bugs grow from different bits of our city and plotting it on a map, an art/science mash up
tiny got a new skate skirt

dinosaur and scooby doo skate covers

and some for Velma!!!!

Its quite interesting trying to take a picture of your own leg!!!

And finally - A skate dress for a friends eldest girl - using the bottom half that i made for a different dress but it was too small, nothing like recycling!
Well, hopefully i'll blog before another 3 weeks is up!

More skating

How Do,

Well i managed a reasonably quick make for me - a skate dress for my friends middle girl.

Late on Friday i couldn't decide if it was OK, 
So i took it skating and gave it to its new owner, little B, who  (as her mother put it) almost wet herself with excitement! - apparently it took some persuading to get it off her later for swimming!!!

Just need to finish one for her big sister now!

Book day

How Do,
I've had conectivity issues this week but i'm back intime to do a post of book day costumes - 

He wanted to be King Arthur - 

So knitted mail,  a tunic and foil covered hockey leg guards created this look!
I knitted the arm bit and my mum did the head one.
Tiny wanted to be puss in boots - again!
Last years (or the year befores i can't remember) outfit had gotten abit small so i chopped the legs off to make a top with tail - i did her a tunic too

Managed to get her tail to stick out from her tunic as well.
 Well hope you all had a good book day,
