Thank You for the welcome. Love your bunny, my daughter cried with laughter when she saw it. Especially love the picture with the red corset(?) and large spool of thread. I would die for the spool, just another knick knack for the family room. My wife says I am a bit odd at times, especially when awake...

Thank you for the compliment! Yes, I did make this corset. It was a custom order for Faerie artist Lisa Steinke. She needed it for a professional event where she was appearing. I found a trim that looked kind of like faerie vines to go over the seams on the outside. She was thrilled and said she was comfortable in it, even after 13 hours. It was such a wonderful project! :D

hi Larisa
The pattern in the picture is a for a stuffed elephant, I think it's an Alan Dart pattern. Hope all is well with you and you're having a nice weekend!

Hello, Larisa! Oh, how cute -- the photo of the spring bunny! Love all your photos on your page... Hello from Portland, Oregon (formerly from London, UK!)

Larisa, thank you for your nice comment. I like your images of period garments. I also love collecting these type of pictures and magazines & books. I have also made many corsets & bespoke jackets & dresses. Will try and post some on my page. Watch out for this space.

Hello Larisa,

I'm fine thanks, how are you? I guess it will get very busy for you at work at Easter.

I had a look at your costumes, they are lovely!

I have not done much sewing, I have been messing about trying out sun dyeing and finishing off some embroidery from a course I took last year, fabric printing for embroidery. I am not very good but can manage the basic stitches. I have also nearly finished a Japanese folded patchwork needle case and am busy knitting a cardigan. I will try and get some photos taken.

We are moving to Durham in about 7 weeks so I will soon be busy packing, the packing isn't as bad as the unpacking and finding a home for every thing:-(

We are about 270 miles from Oxford but I have visited a couple of times many years ago.

Bye for now

Hello Larisa!
At least - I managed it with the fotos of the old russian sewing machine. I will set them in my site right now and I think they will be shown in a few hours! Best wishes from Germany,

Hi Larisa

Great that you enjoyed your stay here - yes it is beautiful. By an Oxford Towel - do you mean a towel from Oxford or is this something special that I should KNow about?

Hi Larisa

Thanks for your welcome and I love your photos as well. I don't have any photos to post but will get my act together. I gather that you have lived a time in NZ from Marilyn's comments below. Which part were you in?
am looking for new ideas on sewing so if anyone has anything interesting, would love to hear from you. Sue

Hi Larisa, I'm sorry I haven't been able to send a message before now. I have had a very busy time at work the past few days. Your bread looks great. Is that you in the photo or your daughter? I saw on one of you comments about buttons that you once lived in New Zeland. I have not been there but my children are half Samoan and have some family there. I love polynesian customs and arts etc. My baby blanket business is going to focus on island style and I will sell them at polynesian festivals that are held here in the summers and also on Esty. I have been collecting unusual fabric prints and will begin sewing shortly. It will be just me making them, nothing on a big scale. Your costumes are very nice. I used to do a lot of costumes for polynesian dance groups and my son was in a lot of dramatic plays when he was younger and I made a lot for that also. It seems we have quite a lot in common. Tell me about you job at the castle, it sounds like it must be very interesting.

Larisa, I wrote this way back in February and just realized I sent it to myself instead of to you. I would still love to hear from you. Marilyn

I'm so sorry that I didn't respond way back in February. @ one point I was having some difficulty with this site and my computer kept freezing up.
I'm back!
Let's see photos...refresh my memory, what specifically? Everything, anything?
It's been a while, hasn't it!
Again I'm sorry to make you think I ignored you.
