Wip Wednesday!

Firstly, I am stunned by the amount of comments on my Sew Mama Sew Giveaway! I doubt I will ever get the chance to reply to them, but I am reading and loving all of the book and magazine suggestions! Some I already own, but lots have definitely made it onto my wish list! and a few into my basket!! Shhhhh!
If you haven't entered, the post you need is here.
Onwards with what I'm working on.
I have chopped up some more gorgeous Posy fabric for another Geranium Dress, this time I've used Ditsy in Hollyhock for the main fabric and Story in Foxglove to line the bodice. (This fabric has the best names ever!) I might just love the lining as much as the front!!
I was hoping to try and add a zip to this, but am getting impatient waiting for them to be delivered! I ordered 2 different shades of pink zips on Thursday and paid for postage, but they are still not here! (mini rant over!!) So I may end up making it with buttons again!

I have finished the sleeves to add to my Playful Stripes cardigan for Rose, but am going to have to really concentrate at the next bit of joining it all together and knitting the yoke!
The wool really doesn't photograph very well, but it's a lovely denim blue baby cashmerino. My eldest has a swimming gala tonight, so I'm hoping to make some progress on it between races!

No progress on my Giant Star as I need to get to Ikea for a backing fabric, but I really want to have this basted over the weekend!

And, I finished my Little Apples Lady quilt for Siblings together last week so at least thats one finish off my Q2 list for the 2013 FAL!!!

I'm linking up with

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced


  1. I love the Geranium pattern - just wish it went over 5 years! I may get it anyway for my 2 year old but she is not a girlie girl - maybe I should look for a tracky b's pattern!

    Your knitting is so neat - I find it difficult to get the tension right with knitting but yours is perfect. Look forward to seeing this all sewn up!

  2. Can't wait to see your Geranium all sewn up and on the model. It is gorgeous - great fabric names.
    I'm in awe of any knitting since I am a complete yarn numpty.

  3. That child will be the best dressed in London shortly!

  4. Pretty fabric and I love the owl ours you choose for the Playful Stripes. X
