Long time no see lol!

Sorry I've been MIA for a little while - I've had a project or 6 that I've been working on, but had to keep a secret until now as the people they were a surprise for have my blog addy lol! So now they all have them - I can show you!
Some of you will know my Dad's been in hospital...and his nurses did such a good job that he wanted to give them a thank you gift! So he asked me to make each of them a bag, as some of them had seen the one I made my Mum for Mother's Day and said they liked it!
And here they are - all six of them lol! 

By all accounts they were very pleased with them, so yay! I'm glad I was able to do something nice for them after the great way they looked after my Dad!

Also, remember my post with the photoshopped Farbenmix Vida dress? Well, I finally got it made! Yay me! 
Here it is.....I'm so happy with it - I think it's the most ambitious single item I've made since I started sewing!

The back of the dress....
 and the front! 
I think I'm going to have a weekend off now lol! 

Thanks for looking, hope you have a great long weekend!
