Hurray - I have finally finished Stanley the Dog (which in fact was a challenge set up by thefeltfairy some months ago but which I have only just managed to do). With a small amount of trouble I have to say too. I was given the pattern with bits to cut out and piece together and sew. EASY PEASY, except that I interpreted the GUSSET as being in the bottom area (Why? because all I could think of was pants had gussets!).
So this is how poor Stanley looked with an extra bottom gusset!!
Until I spoke to my friend who had successfully made a Stanley and informed me that the gusset meant a panel, and the panel should be on his head. What a fool I am.
So Stanley had his bottom undone and I sewed it in the correct place.
Who would have thought he'd have gone so nicely with my tablecoth?
What a handsome fellow he is.
I often get dressed and think "oooh I have no bracelet that goes with that top" so off I go to my bead box and see what I can throw togther. This is one result.
I bought the beads whilst on holiday a few years ago in Venice. They are Morano glass and very pretty. They go with my green top beautifully. Oh and my sandals and my new green bag which I just bought from a charity shop. BARGAIN.
I have mentioned previously how talented the rest of my family are but i wanted to share a vase that my Huffle made for me. He loves to buy me vases (but never any flowers!!!! - it's the thought that counts).
The flower petals are his fingerprints - isn't he clever. I love it. ;O)
