What do You Think?

This will be a short post for me Arent you lucky?


Ist I would love all you crafty people to say hello to my friend Carol  she is a brand new blogger and an old friend.She is also very talented with her crafty things and is packed full of crafty knowledge its why I calle her CraftyCarol (also I had so many Carols in my life at the time I had to nickname them)


2nd is a fellow blogger at Scarlett Loves Elvis  is having a sweet giveaway do come say hi to her you may even win something yummy She has a lovely blog that I enjoy daily.

3rd is what shall I do with this fabric?I have had it for years,its a single to 3/4 bedspread and Its been packed away I am thinking of turning it into a 50s style dress or should I sell it as is? There is extra fabric maybe a pillow cover or sham for bottom of bed and I was going to make a cute apron with that part.So do tell me what you think.(just washed not ironed but so pretty)

Lovely piping down sides
Maybe a pattern like this or an authentic 50s one.
Cant wait to here your thoughts and hope you check out the above blogs.

Oops post wasn't so short after all

Hmmm...I'm thinking that the dress pattern would be a good costume piece for Steampunk purposes, or Victoriana players. Scrap the top, add a waistband instead, there you go. For the tiny waisted, sure...I like something a wee bit more comfy!

Oh, Nelly, the two sites ar neat! I dropped a comment into Carol's, and lurked in the other one...great links! Thank you!

I think a dress would look great, love the pattern you have there. I think one of my next projects will be an apron also.
