I had a few quick items on my making list that I wanted to do. Over the past weekend I managed to do just enough sewing , in between swimming and biking trips, to make these 3 items.
New Pj's for Georgie - I had intended to make these for the solstice but was a bit late , so she got to open a present this evening and has worn them to bed tonight.
( Sew liberated blossom blouse and a pair of shorts to match cut off some old pj's).
A hat for my niece - she missed out last year so I made one for her this Christmas. The bucket hat from oliver and S. Always surprises me how easy it is to make.
Lastly an upcycled blanket into a cushion for a friend who is about to move to her new house. This really was last minute - I was sewing it up at 2.30 this afternoon before she arrived for a Christmas eve meal with us.
I hadn't intended it to be so "Christmasy" but that's what I put together with limited time.
That's it - no more gifts to make, a salad to make in the morning for a lunch and then a day with family. Forecast is for a hot sunny xmas day. One year I'd like to have a white xmas but Summer christmas is good too.
