Myf and I had a lovely May Day bank holiday weekend visiting my beautiful sister Mummycat, my lovely brother in law and my gorgeous nieces as eldest niece was taking her First Communion. Myf and I spent ages trying to find suitable outfits-she was trying on loads of dresses that weren't quite right and we ended up in a charity shop that sold bridal and bridesmaid dresses. She tried on one that she really, really loved and looked so gorgeous in but it had some kind of staining along the bottom right...nothing too bad but it would show up!
I spent ages taking up the hem and underskirt (Oh, the joys of not having a sewing machine!) and then devising some way to cover up those marks.
I naturally turned to a favourite book, Crochet Bouquet, and made some little flat flowers in various sizes in similar shades of embroidery silk. Those got stitched over the worst of the marks and then I stitched a line circling the flowers over some of the last bits. Added a few tiny crystal beads and done!
Myf very kindly modelled it for me
We had a WONDERFUL time with the family
I'm making a lovely ripple blanket (first time!) for my sister's neighbour's daughter-it looks so pretty already :-D
