What I have been up to..

One whole week has gone by, and no blog post! Clearly I have a lot to learn about this blogging malarkey. I do find having to work for a living does get in the way of the creative process, but I shouldn't complain too much, I do enjoy my job, and until I find a way to be paid to potter around to my hearts content, it's going to be the way of the future!
However, things have been happening in the the house of PurpleMum. I have finished all my second round blocks of the 4x5 Bee blocks, and I am very pleased with them, I shall give you a lttle sneak peek. For me to have them mailed out  almost a week before the deadline is nothing short of a modern miracle,

They have taken quite a bit of time and energy, but I am very pleased with the end result.

I have also made a fabulous wrap skirt using a 'Make it Perfect' pattern, I am dubious anout modelling it, as I am not as glamorous as my sistte, but the skirt looks nothing lying on the ground, so excuse the body, I am very pleased with the skirt. The colour combo had had the desired effect, as Mr. Purple commented that it reminded him of something that his Mum used to wear! So the desired retro/vintage colour scheme with a touch of red definitely worked!!

Skirt on me.

Skirt on the floor. Doesn't give you a great idea of what it looks like.


  1. You've been busy! Your skirt def has a retro vibe, I like it. You might even see some patchwork happening over my way soon.

  2. Gorgeous skirt Pam! And I love your blocks. Your are ripping it up with that sewing machine!
