A stitch in Time

Hi Everyone,
I kid you not as I am writing this post I notice I have a whole 37 minutes to get it live and linked up to the challenge it was intended for!!!! Yes I am getting worse at cutting it fine. With this in mind, I do have make up photo's for you but I will show you on my next post.  
This is an entry for the  'Sew Special' challenge at A Vintage Journey which this month is hosted by the very talented Jenny. who in her own words says Add fabric to your entry in some way be it felt, burlap, ribbon or cloth and if you're really feeling brave maybe include a touch of real or faux stitching! 

I wanted to use some of the eclectic elements fabrics that I have been holding on to for a while now so I made a sewing desk from the Bigz window and window box set and wrapped material around parts of the cut out windows

Here you can see them a little closer and you can see the dimension
A few scraps gather around the base of the table

Someone has been very busy creating this lovely dress for a very lucky lady just awaiting to be collected from its manikin

Here again from a different angle

From this angle you can see the dimension of both

Hope you like it, don't forget to pop back tomorrow for the make up photo's
