A trip to Atlanta and a week of illness has kept me away from the blogosphere but I’m back!
When not recovering from the two forestated events, I have been busy in Granny’s Creative Cave with birthday gifts for the grandones.
Let me just say, all those years of Bridal and special occasion couture work and it comes down to this—Harry Potter costumes and tutu’s!
I say this with a broad smile on my face and great joy in my heart. 😊
I have a granddaughter who loves owls and dinosaurs so those were the inspo for her gifts. The final project was birthed as 2 capes, 2 tutu’s and 2 masks.
The grandson is a HUUUGGGEEE Harry Potter fan and desired a Harry robe [NOT the bathrobe type, btw]. So I birthed a fully lined, official Gryffindor patched, hooded black Potter robe.
Prior to these creations, the long awaited baby blanket came off the loom, ready to wrap the newest grandone.
These little projects were great fun, and I realize that the time for this type of venture is now. The little ones grow so quickly and before I know it, this type of gift will be passé.
Following the mailing of these treasures, I took a good hard look at my creative cave and groaned…what a mess! So I did what any self respecting sewist would do—I grabbed the piles of ribbons that were spilling out of my cabinet, scooped up some plastic bags, found Monk on TV and sorted and filed my ribbon collection. This was followed by a similar treatment of fabric swatches and magazine pictures.
With some order restored, I can now begin my summer stitching.
More next week…
