Hi all!  I've received my package already - and I absolutely love it!  Ivycircle sent me a beautiful grey pencil skirt with little bee details on
it.  She also sent me a pretty apron (soon to be photographed) and some gold-coloured yarn (that I'm dreaming about already!)





Thanks so much!

I listed the 40s and 50s - my partner noticed I mentioned how I admired Audrey Hepburn's style, and made this terrific pencil skirt!

The skirt is so cute! I love the little bees.

Also I've put the updated list in the first post for the gallery.

I'm trying to update people feedback as their partner receives, if I fall behind just remind me to update your feedback.

Poor sophieangele has been flaked on but take a look at the awesome purse she made her partner. She's very talented

EDIT: looks like an angel is not needed! Yay!

EDIT: All sorted now - not lost after all Smiley


here are pics of what I sent to my partner. the periods were 1900-1930 USA, and the 19th Century.

the whole ensemble:


the apron set:


The apron is a 1920s-style tea apron, and the recipe cards are from the 1920 Perry Home Cook Book. The cupcake lolly was just for fun

a cloche-style hat, reconned (bought the hat, I did the beading on the flower and band)



And this was the big part - a 1840s miser's purse. this was hell to bead! I'm really sad that it's now lost because it was a huge undertaking Sad
