Yesterday i managed a spot of sewing and sewed up this little number... i love the fabric, the perfect shade of red and i do love red in case you hadnt noticed!
It is a simple a-line skirt and i cut the pattern off an existing skirt. There are no darts although i may be tempted to put some in the next one i make.

It has a simple binding waistband and i actually managed to insert a zip!
( and it looks half reasonable! )
Ive always tended to shy away from sewing zippered clothing but after a couple of attempts at it ive worked out the method and i would attempt one again.
In other crafty news i have finished my quilt for the Down under doll quilt swap. Its the first swap i have ever participated in and although im happy with the quilt i made i cant say i Really enjoyed the process. I found it a wee bit stressful making something for someone else - without really knowing their taste. Im sure they will like it - Im putting in a few extra goodies just in case they dont!
Ive got four more blocks to go on the Single girl quilt, i will be glad to see this finished, its a huge quilt. Im planning to straight line quilt this one, theres a few done that way on flickr and they look fantastic.
Anyway enough of my rambling, enjoy whats left of the weekend and have a great week! x
A lovely surprise from a friend this week, arent they magnificent (in my new vase too!)
