Mrs Fix-it...

I'm thinking this blog should be called 'Julie's stitching/knitting/sewing and mend-anything blog'

This week i've been asked "mum can you sew my work trousers the stitching ripped"
and
"mum can you sew my work jumper its got a hole in it somehow"



Then there was a visit from my mum who brought this hedgehog. It was a gift from a friend a long time ago and she had washed the dress and it had disintegrated (it's a toilet roll cover apparently - don't ask!) the blue/yellow one is the rotten one, the navy blue one is the replacement one i made today. Then there was the comment from DH "will you be making the new curtains for the newly decorated hallway/stairs window this weekend" When the sewing machine was out today for 'Hetty Hedgehog' i carried on and made the curtains too, so what was going to be a nice restful weekend with lots of stitching didn't happen yet LOL

But .. i did get to stitch on the LHN last night, week 3 and i now have a lady ... roll on next week, this is such a nice project to stitch.

Tomorrow is the reveal of the JA monthly challenge piece, i'm looking forward to seeing everyones piece this month and showing what i made with mine. Of course it will be the poll then for next month...

Wow you could start a new fashion in toilet accessories - oooh I do think I'm funny.

The lady under the "lamp post" is lovely (looks more like an elongated LP than a bent twig now)lol. Ok I will crawl back under my stone now.

your toilet paper doll made me laugh! I have one that my grandma made years ago. It is crocheted. You made great memories for your mom!
Your weekend sounds oh so familiar. Why is it, when we THINK we will get lots of stitching time, LIFE gets in the way?!?!?!
Your LHN is looking great!
