Still in 'catch up' mode, here are some pictures of a softie that I have been itching to show you since about December. I normally don't make softies, you see. But with my little niece's 4th birthday coming up (ok- been and gone now!) this was a perfect excuse to try something new... and as this little girl thinks that little piggies are very cute, Piggilina (as I called her) was born.
I was trying the 'quirky' soft toy think, but somhow it ended up having an Auntie spin to it. I especially like the bow on her tail! This softie was a hit with Miss G :) Who knows- I could make more softies in the future!

I think that there has been a bit of a delayed response with my blogging this year (so far). It kind of goes like this.. do some craft/sewing/see something inspiring. Think about blogging about it. Then watch the time slip by...
So now I am seizing the moment, and finally blogging about something (if only about a week too late!) I had been hoarding some luscious Liberty 'Mim' fabric for some time, and have finally turned it into something worthwhile: version 3.0 of the 'ever versatile top'- this time a ray of sunshine! This time I had accessorised with some very cute little cross-stitch buttons from the lovely Heleen at Ruby In The Dust- which I had purchased at a craft fair earlier and just happened to be a perfect match colour-wise!
