I have been pretty busy at the moment with studying and I thought that this weekend I would take a little break from it all and do something that I enjoy, (apart from blogging of course).
As some of you may know, I enjoy sewing and dressmaking, and although I am by no means an expert, I am definitely improving the more I do. I particularly love making clothes for my little great-nieces and have made quite a few outfits, for them, especially in the summer months. Here are some of my projects on Pinterest.
Last Christmas I managed to make a skirt and trousers in fun Christmas fabric. You can see little Molly modelling her skirt that I made.
I didn’t know what to make this year but I wanted it to be a little bit more adventurous than what I had done before, as well as something practical.
Mr Grump was busy watching the rugby so I cracked on with it. It took a little longer than I expected, but just after midnight I had finished my project and was pleased with the results. They are not perfect, but they do look cosy and warm!
As I shan’t shrink to fit those… I am imagining that I shall have to save for quite a while for a pair that I can (and would ) wear with a big old Christmas smile on my face!
I would wear these myself too! 🙂
They are so.cute sis!
Thanks Sis. 🙂

Hello, and thanks for stopping by. I am Judy, in my (very) early fifties and decided that life definitely gets more interesting as it goes on! I am a wife and a mum and have just finished University as a Registered Nurse, after having worked as an Associate Practitioner in the NHS. I am also a poet and the author of my debut book, 'Rhymes of the Times.' I love to laugh, and I love rhyming words too, so I joined the two together, and my book was born. I am currently working on another book in the series also. I am a prolific blogger and enjoy writing funny stories, anecdotes, and anything really that takes my fancy.
