Elephant love dress

It is very rarely now that I'm allowed to sew for Leoni, simply because she has her own taste and that doesn't always include mummy's handmade clothes ;-)
However, she asked me to make her a new dress (actually two, the other photo will follow later), she picked the fabric herself and really loves it. Yippee!!!

Who would have thought?

For all of you who don't know, which is probably the majority of all my followers, this is my husband Alan. As I was working today he accompanied my daughter to her Young Embroiderers class (under a little protest though), where they made these cute Christmas trees.
Yes, HE actually made this and by the sound of it he quite enjoyed it! He even used a sewing machine and found it 'ok', only that he didn't have a lot of control of the pedal with his thick boots :-) Now, I've got five sewing machines in my workroom and he's NEVER EVER even attempted to use one before. Should this be the start of a new hobby?

Prize winner

About two weeks ago we received a letter from the City Council announcing that Leoni had won in their annual drawing competition for the Dundee Energy Efficiency calender 2015. Her picture (and thirteen others) was chosen from hundreds of entries from all primary schools in Dundee. And today was  the prize giving at Dundee City Council where she received a framed certificate, the calendar of course and some other lovely surprises. Well done, girl!
