My 'retro' dresses are waiting in the wardrobe for me to dig them out and shake out the moths. , although I think some of them got cut up to make Playgroup puppets out of the sleeves.

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 {hug}

Hi , yes I am impressed as normal.
But may I say noticed the time piece in the back. looks old and well looked after . A family treasure I guess . ( Was going to say BET but changed it ) .

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
