I am back! and loads of lovely goodies to look at, I was sunning myself in the south of france for a week and am home in Ireland to what we call a heatwave..over 20C and some sun peeking through a lot of cloud..yay-I think.

I haven't had a chance yet to make a claim this round, but will do very shortly..

You look great in this creation, Edel, and you'd never know it was once two thrift-shop waif-size dresses! The colours suit you very well, and it's nice to see someone who gets how great bold patterns can look.

The great thing about modifying purchased clothing, even if you completely cut it apart and re-build it, is that all the annoyingly time-consuming parts, like pockets, flys, zippers, buttonholes, plackets, etc. are already done. I like your advice about choosing dresses that are the same length - it's easier to line up hems than to have to make a new hem on the insert to match the rest of the dress.


thanks for the compliment..and yes, all the difficult stuff is done. hems and facings.

It actually took me ages to realises that these two dresses belonged together, I had a kind of an ephipany that the colours don't have to match exactly, the sides don't have to be black, that prints that seem to clash sometimes have an alchemy

Plus thrift store stuff is so cheap to work with!

5  Craft Swaps / ACTIVE SWAPS WHERE SIGN-UP PERIOD HAS CLOSED / Re: I Love Musicals Swap -Signup thru June 29; sendout July 29 on: Today at 04:08:47 AM
Great partnering...This will be a fun swap to craft for, even though the items that I receive will be for my daughter(she is 20) she will be thrilled.

come with me on a tour of her bedroom, so you can see what I mean


these are all publicity posters for the west end shows, you used to be able to buy them at a theatre shop there, now closed, so she has had to go and ask politely at one or two business around the west end for the ones that the theatres had on their walls for advertising..The wait (for hours!) at stage doors for autographs, the mormon one is signed by the original west end cast.

head of her bed

another wall, she is starting a collection of orginal soundtracks on LP, found in thrift shops.

and more!

she is obsessed!

Found this vintage wool among some crochet samples from my Grandma.  It looks a bit moth-eaten, and I'm hesitant to start unwinding it.  I guess I think it might all come away as bits and pieces in my hands.

Anybody want to throw out some wild suggestions for what I should do with it?

OMG you should immediately send me the label, I love it, but then I realised that the brand is actually my surname, for real!

I agree with you MareMare, they are potent and like anything can be dangerous.
