Linen jacket

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...

New tops...

...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.

New jumper

When I asked Alan last night if he liked my new top he said: mmh, it looks ok from the front but what's wrong with the back? Ahh, men!
The pattern Butterick 6218 as I really like the style of Katherine Tilton's designs. I used textured knit fabric and some of the pieces are cut on the bias and crosswise which makes the design more interesting.

Corfu 2015

We spent our holiday this year on the beautiful island of Corfu, together with my mum and brother who flew over from Germany. The hotel was very good, the scenery beautiful and the most important thing was - it was hot. And that is very important if you live in Scotland, for me anyway. All in all we had a lovely holiday.
