A tribute to Melly and Me!


I have finally finished the sewing that I HAD to do before Christmas!

I can't tell you what a relief that is!

Now I just have a mountain of things that I NEED to make and REALLY, REALLY, REALLY WANT to make in the next 7 days!

This post truly is a tribute to the wonderful design talents of Melly and Me - I love their patterns so much - and so do all my friends it seems!!!

So let me please introduce you to Dilbert's cousins


and Lilbert

who are for two of Fred's school friends after they fell in love with Fred's birthday present.

And accompanying young Lottie from a couple of posts ago, may I introduce you to Blossom

(a rather brighter and more brilliant version of the one Dot received for her birthday!)

And finally, a photo of Dot herself - a poorly girl, who spent her days lying on the sick bed sofa stitching away on another Melly and Me design which will have to remain a secret for another few days!
Hopefully I will be back again before Christmas day but just in case I'm not I'd like to wish all of my lovely bloggy friends a very, very HAPPY CHRISTMAS!!!!!

happy Christmas to you too Lucy!
I had fully intended to make your mini quilt before Christmas, but I'm sorry to say that the time has just run away from me. I WILL make it though - more than likely in the new year - so that gives me 12 months right? LOL.

Great stuff Lucy! Merry Christmas to you and yours too!

Daisie said...

A very merry christmas to you too!!
I do hope that Dotty is feeling better for the joys next week has to bring!!

Word Verification; SEDIT and I did!

Kitty said...

Lovely 'makes' there Lucy - I still have some stuff to make for the big day - rapidly running out of time.

Sorry to hear Dot's been poorly - the lurgi we had back in November seems to be rife round here at the moment. I'm glad we had it 'early'.

Merry Christmas to you and all your Lockets. Hope you have the most wonderful time.

Happy Christmas? Surely there are still weeks to go? There must be, judging by my 'to do' list!!!

Huge well done on getting all that sewing done Lucy. It all looks gorgeous and will, I'm sure, make some little people very happy.

I hope Dot is all better again. that's a lovely photo of her sewing :-)

Merry Christmas to you and all the Lockets!!


Marie said...

I Love Lilbert!!!!

Hope Miss Dotty is better soon. Better poorly this week than next week though.

Merry Christmas to you and all the other Lockets!

(I so wish I'd finished all my Christmas sewing *sigh*)

merry christmas to you too Lucy and your peeps, those toys are FABULOUS I especially love Blossom she is adorable

silverpebble said...

Poor old Dot - hope she feels better - sewing is good therapy for poorly ladies.

Lots of crafty loveliness here - those dinosaurs are wonderful.

So glad you've got some of the list sorted and the pressure might be slightly relieved. That bloomin' 'to do' list! It's a bit of a tyrant.

definately a good tribute - hope Dot gets better soon and Merry Christmas to all the Lockets ..

What brilliantly bright and beautiful gifts - the recipients are bound to love them! (As will Melly and Me - what a tribute!)

I hope Dot's feeling better before the big day, and if we don't see you again before, I hope you all have a fabulous time!

I am glad you caught up! I hope Dot is feeling better. Happy Christmas to you and the Locket household.

Hope Dot is feeling better now, poor lamb :-(
