I've been missing in action over the last couple of weeks. It started with the central heating being fitted and then the sudden realisation that I have two craft fairs at the end of September.

I will try and blog (if your interested) as much as possible with my progress.

Here is some of the stuff we have been doing....

I made this doily fascinator a couple weeks back now. I spray starched it to shape and added vintage button detailing. It's one of my favs so far.

A barbie dress for my daughter, she likes it even if the finishing is poor lol

We made more cakes yesterday - I'm getting good now I only covered the left side of my top in flour this time... I usually come out looking like I've had a tub of talcum powder dropped over me head lol

Black Daisy Fascinator

Last night I had some time to make something so I put together this little fascinator. I did try and glue the sequin string to the pad but it looked rubbish so had to hand sew it instead. I then used a black daisy and two leaves and attached it to the base. It has a plain millinery come to fix to the head.

It's nothing special but it will suit almost every outfit.... I hope :)

My daughter wanted pizza for dinner yesterday but I didn't have any pizza bases... so I made it on bread instead.
