New accessories - quilted bumpad and garters
fot. Łukasz Gerwatowski Wiosna zawsze szybko mi mija, na tyle szybko, że nie zorientowałam się, że od ostatniego wpisu minął ponad miesiąc. Ale nie leniłam się! Udało mi ukończyć trzy kolejne drobiazgi z listy rzeczy do zrobienia - fartuszek (prosty, jeszcze bez haftów), poduszkę powiększającą części zadnie i podwiązki.
