    Hi Anne, your projects are brilliant. Thank you for sharing them and your tips. Will crack on with them tonight. Many thanks I’m looking forward to your new projects :-) Just looked at your blog too….yes I’m feeling a little bit like a stalker now! Did you go to the market in Derby too? 4 material and 4 haberdashery stalls and that’s just in the Eagle centre, there’s a haberdashery in the other market hall too and at least one shop inbetween! Hubby’s family live there so he took me round at Easter too. We do like Derby and not just for the sewing supplies lol. We usually have to travel to Maccelsfield for a material splurge or Aberkahns when we visit my parents.

      I had intended to get to the Eagle market, but spent too much time (and money) at Tatlers!! Next time – hubby will be driging to Derby at least once a week until August or September. Welcome to the blog ;p

      Thanks Don, I have tried that now, but it doesn’t give me a nice badge, only a hyperlink, and it only links to the Burdastyle homepage, not to my studio…

    Hi Anne, thanks for posting pics of the garments which you have sewn for yourself. You look great and you made a gerat outfit! We both aren’ 20 any more, but I don’t think we should’nt hide while it is obvious that our young daugters (mine is 16tenn) are much prettier than we are. Don’t you think so?

    Gosh, I really loved this month’s mag, loads of patterns I was going to use and so happy that a lot of them are “simple” so shouldn’t take me long to make :-)

      It is pretty boring – at least I still have April to get through, and the self drafted stuff! I think it’s great Burda are encouraging the beginners, but there needs to be stuff for those who know what they are doing too…

    When making more than one item from a pattern, do you load each as a seperate project, and risk boring everyone, or do you load them together??? :s

      It’s depends i guess, in your case none of your projects can be boring, no matter what kind of display you choose.

      I have been doing them separately, so I guess I will just carry on with that! :)

    Hi there! Thanks for your nice comments on my projects. The BWOF 08/2009 #119 jacket pattern is beautifully drafted, so I think you’ll have no problems making it. I’m planning on making the same jacket for my mom. I’m looking forward to seeing your version. Best, Ana
