A new chapter

Very excited and nervous this morning, Leoni's first day at High School  :-)

The end of primary school

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:

Birthday

Leoni turned 12 on Friday and had a few friends joining her at Battlefield followed by some party games in the house. They all are growing up too fast if you ask me....

Night night

After a failed attempt at ordering a onesie for Leoni online that fitted, I just had to make her one myself (and finished it just in time for Christmas):

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...
