Re: New illnes......at my age!!!!!

I had shingles around my eye last year, but was very lucky as it was mild. I didn’t go to the doctor for a couple of weeks, so was too late for anti virals!

Re: Latest retro dress

Thank you all very much :-D .

Bob, the clock I bought from a shop 28 years ago, and I love it (even though it had clearly met with an accident at some point!). I’m not sure what you mean my the patterned box? It’s a mantelpiece over a fireplace in the background :-D

Re: Latest retro dress

Just finished a few spring inspired garments! The ric rac patterned skirt is a self drafted gathered skirt. The retro cropped top is B5895, and the daffodil dress is B6453. I absolutely love this style as it reminds me of my darling Mum https://images2.imgbox.com/bc/e2/mf0X2HKg_o.jpeg https://images...

New retro skirt for Christmas

So, due to several factors (mainly cost the of this fabric and the fact that the only seller that had it discounted had a very limited amount left) my Christmas offering this year is a skirt rather than a dress. I have already worn it three times, and it’s an easy wear. I will be wearing it again on...

Re: needle felting.

Funnily enough, I’ve been thinking of trying needle felting myself, and was only looking at kits on Amazon yesterday. Some are only a few pounds, so may well give it a go soon
