I did it!! I made it in time!

I wasn’t going to do one as I didn’t think I would be able to when I broke my wrist….but as its healing pretty well I decided I needed to do some sewing.

I have done something for a magazine to publish and I will show you a sneak peek a bit later.

But I was given some lovely Caring Hearts blocks from the fabulous Forum Ladies when I broke my wrist (a big hug from them all) and after one of the ladies said she was going to make a machine cover out of the ones she got, I thought…aha!

Why don’t I do the same and so I got all the Caring Hearts out and chose my fabrics from my stash and my EQ6 program up and running and well this is what I have come up with for dressing my “Girl” up.

Cheryl along with

Jenny is having a Sewing Machine Cover Challenge

so I can finally enter it with my cover.

Here my "Girl" is all naked…

and here is her dress :)

002I am rather pleased with it and now I don't have to use that plain and boring plastic cover for her.

Hugs to All…..Vicki
