Aren't these ribbons sweet?! The one in the middle is Snow White and the seven dwarfs and at the bottom - Little Red Riding Hood. I plan on sewing Bella a red cape edged in this one for her dressup box. They are beautiful quality - available here from Ribbons Galore.
The Autumn scarf is finished. I opted for no fringe as most of you suggested. Perhaps the next one may include a fringe or pompoms - I really loved the pom pom idea, thankyou!
Helen: Thankyou for your lovely comments Helen. I really only started sewing when my James was about 5 (so 7 years ago). I bought a sewing machine to stitch dressup clothes for him and pretty much guessed my way through the patterns. Mum always encouraged me to do crafting when I was growing up, but it has only been the last few years that I've sewed on a regular basis. As for knitting - James' blanket that I started a few months ago is really my first project, so I'm only just learning.
Brigitte: I counted up my albums for you and I have 21 scrapbooked 12"X12" sized albums and a huge variety of mini albums :))
Something else that I wanted to share with you is this book, Brave Little Bear. Bernadette lent me a copy of her book last week and it is a truly inspirational story about becoming a Mum at 16. I'm acquiring one for our bookshelf and if you know anybody affected or going through teenage pregnancy then I strongly urge you to visit Bernie's website.
