I've done some sewing!!!!!

Hooray!

But I can't show you it yet - sorry!

It's secret sewing for this gorgeous girl's 9th birthday next week - and I haven't finished it yet either!

I did make one of the hairbands from this fabulous tutorial which is why you have Daisy modelling it for you here - such a quick, easy and successful thing to make - I'll definitely be making many more.

And for want of any other pictures I thought I'd show you the fabric book that I made for Daisy's first birthday (although I think she was nearer two when she actually got it!)

The colours are much nicer in real life (but the sun had gone from the lawn when I took the pics) and the front cover says the real-life equivalent of "Daisy Locket had a farm". It's wonky and inaccurate but loved nonetheless.

I hope you are all having a lovely weekend. Hooray for Bank Holidays and Half Term with the children - I've been working full time for the last couple of weeks which is a new experience for me so the holiday is very much appreciated!

Hello there Locket, fancy seeing you in this neck of the woods.

Loving that rather gorgeous book. Is it a Locket original or was there a pattern involved?

Wow, she is gorgeous isn't she? Thank you for the hairband link, my 6 year old is currently growing her hair long and will not hear of pony tails or clips! Enjoy your halfterm!

Working full time eh? That's a whole new level of busy.

And you evidently have a high standard of homemade birthday gifts to live up to!

Daisy Locket is very beautiful ... all that hair!

The fabric books is wonderful - wish I'd thought to do stuff like that. A family heirloom methinks.

Darling book! I'm so glad you didn't give it away, as I did with so many of our children's baby things. Now I want them back!

Love that book must put it to memory for a later make. Then again at my age it will be forgot before I press "publish this comment"
