Hearts, fairies and shouting clocks.

Finally, I feel like sewing again, Santa took my mojo!
A skirt made with the Saffron Craig fabric I bought at the Markets,
hemmed with vintage lawn binding.
Rather fetching on!
I'm hoping this has kick started my
sewing 'to-do list', it was nice to choose some
fabric and see it through to completion,
without feeling like it was a chore.
We bought this 'talking' Hello Kitty alarm clock for P on e-bay,
looks cute enough right?
The truth is it YELLS at you in Cantonese,
over and over, it shouts out, till you press the button.
Nothing gentle and cute about it, it terrifies small children!!

I love the skirt too. It really is gorgeous fabric - she's a clever girl. Not so sure about the clock though...my alarm is stuck on an italian radio station - that's bad enough.

I love saffron's fabric,your skirt looks beautiful!
I had my eye on this fabric to make baby nbr 3 a quilt,I was going to be all organised and make 'her' a quilt.
But 'she's' the other flavour,so doesn't quite go.
I never thought to make myself something with it,Doh!
Thanks for the idea,I'm sure it looks fab on,
