Declutter and Catch Up

Hello friends

Been a nice day again although still a bit cold.

I didn't do any decluttering during April I've been too busy with costume making, flower making and helping to look after mum. My mum deteriorates a little more each month.

I've not been out to spend any money either so that's not too bad.

Do you want to see the dress I've made for L as part of her Prince charming costume?

The lace I used has this gorgeous edge to it so I incorporated into the hem and the waist. I'm really pleased with the way the dress has turned out because I had to alter the original pattern to fit in with the lace. I do love this lace.
I'm in the process of making the jacket which is much more complicated and I'm about half way through it. When the jacket is finished L and I will decide whether or not to put some net under the dress to make it stand out a bit.
I'm looking forward to joining Mum at "Mum's Simple Living" for her Spring Fest on Monday. Hoping the weather stays fine and we can have it outside.
That's all my news for now and I hope you all have a great Bank Holiday weekend. 
Thanks for dropping by.


  1. Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous. L. will look lovely. Hug your mum for me.
    Love from Mum

  2. Wow, what a beautiful dress, the lace is gorgeous!


    1. Thank you Alison. I got the lace from our local market.


1st May. What ever happened to April? I'm thinking back to what I did during April. I started to tidy up the garden, a little bit each...
