Going spotty

Not itchy spots - fabric spots!
I made a skirt today. Dear daughter inspired me once again. I made up my own pattern for this wrap skirt with darts for shaping. Here is a pic - not a very good photo because I took it myself, but you get the general idea. The skirt can be tied at the back or at the side. It is really comfortable.

I also made some tissue holders and hair slides and a little purse with some scraps of fabric. Some of the patterns are in the latest issue of "Get Creative" magazine, which I subscribed to for this year. It has some great ideas.

I hope you are all well and happy.

I have been diagnosed with a hernia. I thought I felt something abnormal in my stomach and I am actually glad to know it is not sinister. I can live with it and only have to have an operation if it gets larger. Keeping my fingers crossed xx

You are so clever - that skirt looks amazing and to have all the other matching goodies is even better !!!
When I read your title I thought "Oh no chicken pox / measles" so was very happy to see it was fabric and not skin you were talking about !!!
Have a great day and take care with the hernia - they can be rather nasty if you don't keep an eye on them.
