New blog title

I have been away a long time again and I am sorry BUT I am now back and with a slightly different blog title (I have left the web address the same)
Over the last few months I have really got back into dressmaking as well as still doing some cross stitch. So decided to start up the blog again to show my progress on both. Hence the new title !
So my posts from now on will be either cross stitch themed or dressmaking themed.

I will update with photos later but this is what I am working on -

Cross Stitch - Disney Dreams - Sleeping Beauty and Pension Day (from an old magazine on my WIP list for ages!) My daughter Becki also now cross stitches (yeah) so I will sometimes post her work too. And just started a birth sampler for a friend.

Dressmaking - About to finish a nice linen jacket for Laura. About to start a summer top for me in Broderie Anglaise and part way through a top for Laura (she needs a fitting and isn't home until mid Feb)

Here is the pattern I am using for the jacket NEWLOOK 6217.






Back later with photos and more updates

Great name for your return - I keep pondering about dressmaking again, maybe your blog will give me the push
