Monday Show and Tell with MMP

I finally got around to making myself an over shirt, have been planning this for some time and am really pleased with the finished garment, particularly as I was able to use fabric from my really old stash. Can't wait until the next garment.

Did do some work eventually and made these Parisian themed door hangers from some of the left over fabric, cannot waste anything. aslo cut out some other goodies still on the sewing room table, to be revealed in due course.

Check out the other MMP blogs and all the lovely creations that have taken place in the last week.

Off to Ikea this week for some storage solutions for my workroom, will get sorted one day, will have to stop buying more stuff!
