Where has the time gone? Leoni had her P7 leaver's prom tonight and she was very happy for me to make her dress (which doesn't happen very often nowadays) and I must say I really enjoyed sewing it. Still can't believe she'll be heading to High School in August...part of me is incredibly proud of her and what she has achieved so far, the other part would like her to stay little for a while longer. My husband dug this picture out from when she was about 1year old, so there's 11yrs between those two photos:

For the first time we've made our way down to Harrogate to exhibit at the Knitting and Stitching Show. Ahead of us are four exiting show days at the HIC and if you're planning on visiting the show we would love to welcome you at our stall B225 in hall B.

I like to try out new patterns, especially unusual styles, and when I came across this Katherine Tilton pattern (Butterick 5891) I just had to have it. It's made in washed linen, the sides are longer than the front and back and the collar is asymmetrical. Should I make it again, and there is quite a high probability, I'll be a bit braver and combine different fabrics. That's the plan anyway. But then I've got another lovely pattern waiting here...

...for the two of us: Leoni's top is made from the funky New York jersey (which she chose herself) and my tunic is Vogue pattern 8817, patched together from various jerseys I had lying about.
