Well, it has been an awfully long time since I said hello from Peggy’s Pickles – 16 months to be precise!
Although the lack of blogging suggests I have been completely consumed with nappies, sleepless nights and games of peek-a-boo (all of which have happened in abundance), I have in fact been quite productive on the sewing front as well. I don’t have that many photos but this is a list of all the things I have made since my little boy was born:
Baby quilt, done a local sewing course, embroidered cushion cover, scout woven tee x 2, sorbetto top x 1, drafted my own pattern from an existing jumper and made the jumper, made the jumper again for my sister, learnt to knit, knitted a scarf (which will never ever ever ever be done again, my word – the stress), two thirds of a granny square crochet blanket, t-shirts x 2, renfrews x 2, Clover trousers x 2 (although one pair may not count as they have stretched beyond all recognition), done a Craftsy course and…
made a hoodie with a very big hoodie, self drafted trousers
Lucy Tunic for my niece (not the cardigan!), an owl pin cushion
Wedding present pillows, lots of Flashback Skinny Tees
Baby sling, and tee-pee (my fave!)
And lots and lots and lots of baby trousers!!
This leads me on to make another announcement (no not more babies) – I have started my own business!
You can find my shop on Folksy here: http://folksy.com/shops/LittleBiscuit
In a nutshell, I am designing and making baby clothes from up-cycled fabric. The shop opened today and I will share the story of how it came about in my next blog post. In the meantime, do go and have a look and pass it on to all your friends!
