I'm so looking forward to being able to get some sewing done again, I've put off getting into any new projects for the last couple of weeks while I powered on through and completed my diss. And then this weekend has been to busy to get any sewing in, but look where I've been!
Sorry for the blurry iphone pics, I wasn't sure if I should be photographing stuff so I was doing so in a hurry and forgot about the simple things, like focus!
These two dresses were the “pièce de résistance” of the fair, stunningly beautiful dresses from the 50's. They came with a hefty price tag too, £95 for the blue one! I had to snap photos of them, so beautifully made, and I love the details. Storing them away for future inspiration.
That was Saturday, on Sunday I went to an open house event, Julia is setting up a sewing business offering workshops in Leicester, and she lives just round the corner from me!
This is a selection of the lovely projects you can make in her workshops, but if your not in Leicester you should follow her blog instead, as there are a selection of tutorials on there too!
I also met Sarah, who organises Leicester's Crafty Ladies, and runs a series of classes in all different crafts, from sewing, to crochet, to flower arraigning, to glass bead work (or something).
It was really nice to be able to have some real sewing chat, especially as both Julia and Sarah are much, much more experienced than I am. I hope to be able to get involved with the crafty side of Leicester this year, there is so much going on!
