Phew…all handmade Christmas gifts are done and ready for wrapping. I can’t share them yet but I’m really rather pleased with them. One especially which is my own design! Get me!!!!!
It’s too early even for me to be wrapping Christmas gifts just yet. It spoils the fun of the season, I think.
But I’m now itching to get back to some dressmaking and have a couple of projects in mind just as soon as I can get some time in the sewing loft. The Husband is away tomorrow night so I feel a bout of cutting out coming on!
In the meantime, as well as the gifts, I’ve managed to make myself a new apron in time for the Christmas cook fest:The Henny Pinny
Fabric: Hen fabric is a linen mix bought at Festival of Quilts
Black is a linen mix bought from Dunelm
Pattern: Copied from the apron I made recently for Black Purl.
Notions: Steam-a-seam for applique
And that’s about it. I think it’s cute and a new apron was definitely overdue. Whilst it’s not the most exciting project I’ve done recently, it’s certainly one of the most useful.
PS.Apologies for the grainy photo
It’s so very overcast and dark here at the moment. I’ve had the lights on in the house all day.
Astonishing…what with it being November and all!

I love this! I want to make a pinny for a friend of mine but she is soooo tiny, I´ll either need to make a kiddy sized pinny or really scale down one of mine. I´m sure it won´t be too complicated. Can you believe I haven´t done any sewing yet since I got back apart from hems and taking up trousers? Shame on me! Love the fabric for this pinny, very cute 🙂
Thank you…I’ve needed this for so long and it’s not tricky. I love cooking and a jolly apron like this makes it even more pleasurable.
Beautiful apron. I love the chickens, they are just gorgeoous
Thank you. I’m rather fond of them and they are very cheery on a grey day.
