and I think it's very sweet.
this one is a goodbye pressie for a girl I work with
(she's off to the mines - everybody in the West seems to be heading North these days...)
pretty little cross-stitch doiley pocket
this was a lovely pillowslip (it looks like it was screen-printed) and I think it makes an even lovelier skirt...
And remember if one of these little skirts isn't for you there's always the kiddo option...I've got some lovely Holly Hobbie pillowslips which would make the sweetest little skirts...oh and one made of flanelette, pink with deers, which would look very cute on a little girl with chubby legs, just learning to walk...
this one is for a little girl mad about ballet
she likes it
Lastly I want to mention that there's no hurry to repay your c.i.f. debt. It's taken me more than four months, probably five, to get to this point. If you want to play along do it when the time is right for you. No biggie (I have never used this expression before, but it sums it up perfectly...)
this one's for my A (you know, my ardent feminist) she chose the 'slip and it's my favourite so far. It's quite faded and I really like that...
how gorgeous is this old doiley...
I am not a crafty person and this is not a crafty blog. You all know how easy these skirts are right? What I'm trying to say is your c.i.f. thingy doesn't need to be fancy or elaborate...it can be anything as long as you make it yourself.
O.k. I've done the hard sell, I'll leave it with you...there are four skirts available, please give it some thought.
Sorry. All skirted out.
Thanks Kel, Claire, Mel and Bron. Yay!
Oh and a quick but heartfelt thank you to Tam and Loo for the lovely "ladies" they sent me
my little bookcase is groaning! last count 63 lovelies (a group of ladybirds is called a loveliness btw. perfect. thanks Tam)
