I Have No Words

I have been reading Jeanette's blog for some time. She is a lovely lady and shares warm tales of her family and her sewing.

Back in July I read her post about Florence. It has taken some time for the intensity of grief to subside enough for her to resume blogging, but I am ever so grateful that she has returned to the blogging world.

I have no words to adequately describe the sadness I feel for Florence and her family. However I feel grateful that she is sharing Florence with us.

Read a little more about Florence and her short life.

I'm Still a Loaner

Just made my third loan.

Ndèye Sophie Mbodj will be using her loan to bolster her business which involves dyed cloths. Ndeye, with her husband, supports five children, one of which is at school.

I Made a Nice Top

My little sister needs some maternity clothes, but she is a big girl, making it hard for to find any. So I made her this top; Jalie 2788 Twist Tie Top.

Ta Da!!

I've finally finished my sewing space! Kind of. Well enough to be happy to post pictures anyway. J I still need a sewing table as the one I had in mind was sold out when I went to Ikea. Very disappointing, especially as I wasn't able to get the table before the price went up by $129!!

Corner study unit. The doors all close up, so everything can be shut away, nice and tidy. Also keeps little fingers out. This room also has to double up as a home office, so this corner unit was the perfect piece of furniture.


Two Expendit shelves put together to make a cutting table with storage underneath. This cutting table is not quite tall enough, but that's ok. I'm going to eventually get a glass panel and get hubby to raise the level so it is more comfortable. I got the idea from someone posting on the Crafty Mamas Forum where someone (sorry couldn't find the forum post) commented on this blog post.
