Pretty as a picture AW

So remember those books I bought a little while ago? Well, I've finally sewn a project from one of them!! It took me about 4 hours to sew this one, and I am SO pleased with it. I've made it a point to sew as many gifts as possible in these last week that is left until xmas, can I do it? Maybe! ah!

Anna Maria Horner's "Pretty-as-a-picture" dress from Handmade Beginnings.

I added a pocket to the front.

And a kitty in a tutu! Best calendar month photo.

Staying in

This week has been slow but surprisingly draining on different levels. I am happy however that I was able to cozy up my current nest a bit more with..

Floral pillows found, bought and gifted.

Organizing my favourite cups, bowls and plates in a cupboard all to myself.

Setting up this found sewing machine (have yet to try it out).

Finally having a tv in MY room and being able to watch movies in dvd or vcr mode while munching on snacks.

Getting that glittery bow that's been on my mind for the last little bit. Not necessary but fun :)

This past week I was finally able to be and settle and arrange a space to work in. I don't imagine things will be this calm for long but it's nice for now.

The snow arrived.

A lovely space I am loving so far. Mini xmas tree hey!

Quick supper enhanced by a thrifted plate I love.

Foound an old embroidery I should probably finish.

Treated myself to some a&w with sweet potato fries (not bad).
