A little stitched dress...

So this is what I am working on
at the moment.
It started with a little dress 
that I stitched onto linen,
about seven or maybe even eight years ago!
I remember which house I was living in
when I stitched it,
and it certainly wasn't this one,
or the one before:)
And then,
as so often seems to happen with me,
it sat for a while,
but it was never covered up,
or in a pile.
It was always in view,
'cos I loved it.
It just took a little while
to do something with it.
... I added some buttons,
and stitches...
... lace,
of course...

...added some borders...


...and I'm going to pop it into
a gorgeous old oak (I think it is) frame.
It's taken a while
but it's nearly finished
and now I can get the next half completed project
back on the go.
I need to go now -
need to figure out how to make it fit,
(and stay in)
the frame :)
See you

So I wondered.....

...and I have been wondering
for a quite a while now,
what to do.
You see,
I have all these
from my shop days
what do I do with them all.
They could sit folded
as they do now
for another few years,
but I've been thinking
that maybe I should just try
and let them go.
Find them homes :)
Some will be hard to let go of
cos they have memories attached to them,
the time has come.
if you are at all interested
then pop on over to
the Makers Studio page,
see ... it's on the sidebar,
or the Makers Studio blog
and have a look.
Or email me here -
I don't mind :)
I'll just do bits and pieces
over the next few days,
I'm not all that fussed
about prices.
Make me an offer :)
I would just like to see them go somewhere
than sitting on my shelves.
See you
Jenny :)
