It's a bit Slippery .....

On Tuesday we didn't sew our Sylvia's Bridal Sampler blocks as per usual, but another friend joined us and together we sewed some slippers....

They were finished comfortably within the day - even with chatter and giggles....

... of course we had to have a little bit of a play with the finished product....

.. they are all lovely and look so different ....

.. this angle of standing was quite a challenge for me - I had to hold on to people to maintain my balance...

Mine are the ones under the LIP letters - and I used William Morris scraps from my Tuffet ...

The pattern for these is called Snappy Slippers by Gerri Richards.  I bought special non slip fabric for the base which I'm glad about as we have tiled floors and I really don't want to slip around on them.

I'm still stitching madly in the evenings and another Tea Time Teddy is completed -  shhhhh don't wake up Sleepy Ted...

Righto, Gotto Go..... I have sampler blocks to catch up on so I better get a start on them....  I'm going to prepare the handwork to do this weekend when I join Wendy and other bloggers for our special Easter sew in ...
