Red and yellow and pink and green

The only colours missing from the rainbow song are orange and blue as can be seen in the photo below.

Since my last post I have managed to spend sometime each day in my sewing room this week and completed 6 dresses.  I am pleased with the way the floral scraps that I had have matched in well with the plain fabrics that I was given to work with.    For three of the dresses there was only enough floral fabric to use in the bodice so in those cases the sleeves matched the skirts. 

My next project to work on is my four yellow log cabin blocks - all the strips have now been cut and just need to be sewn up.     I need to get a wriggle on with these as they were nominated as my OMG for February.       

My next batch of dresses will be a straighter dress using stripes and spots.     These have a back opening which is secured with a button and loop.   

Back soon and in the meantime

Happy sewing all
