Sewing and sewing and sewing

Well I rec'd licky split fabric, not any fabric but beautiful toile .

Blue and ivory. 5 yards to be exact from Fabric. Com.

Monday here was a holiday to celebrate Queen Victorias Birthday. Or some may know it as May 24 weekend.

Anyhow Monday was sew in day. I made a bedskirt not any bedskirt but a box pleat bedskirt for my antique iron bed.
I used an old flat sheet and cut it to size. Then I proceeded to make these pillows in one hour.

This pattern is so fast. Here is the bed looking its best.
If you are interested in the pattern just email me and I would be happy to forward you the instructions.

Where was I????

Where was I?????

For the last few days Lavenderridge was floating somewhere is ciberspace.
I couldn't retrieve my dashboard. What was blogger doing/thinking. How many of us lost info?
I hope that all my info is back and that I will be able to carry on.
I would love to host a giveaway or set up a sale.
So bare with me folks until I get this all sorted out.

Well I seem to have gotten into a rut.

Have you ever been there before? So I thought what could I make with this quilting fabric.
Why not a few skirts.

So I guesstimated hmmmm thats not a word.... ok estimated what the little waists would be.
I started out with a 10x 35 piece of fabric for the body of the skirt.

Then I cut out 4"x35 for the skirt bottom.
Then I cut 8 x 26 for the waist. Added in my interfacing and sewed.

My antique singer featherwieght was just a humming....where have you been?????

So here are two cute little skirts for two beautiful girls.

What have you been up to?
I'm thinking I might have a sale or a givea way ....

What to do with all this fabric.
stay tuned
