Sorry for the long silence, I have been learning to knit and have been distracted by British sewing magazines. My pal has been accumulating them from her friends and family who have been visiting the UK. We are starting a collection. Lots of inspiration.
I was quite thankful for the time change this past weekend. It makes the mornings a little easier. With the extra hour, I decided to sew because I prefer to sew than sleep. The Bend-the-rules-sewing puppet theatre has been on my “to do” list for over a year and I purchased a few prints from Quilting Treasure’s Wizard of Oz fabric ages and ages ago with the project in mind.
I will be giving the puppet theatre to the girls for Christmas. I always have visions of sugarplums and a 100% handmade Christmas, maybe this will be the one – but I will have to you know get Lily on board and come to grips with the fact that a zhuzhu pet is not handmade.
I used some denim from daddy’s pant leg to make the carrier. Still waiting for the perfect button so the closure isn’t complete. I know I have a retro gingham one somewhere in my stash…
Have a great week,
