Summer t-shirts

My child was in need of new t-shirts, so this is what I've been doing over the past few days: 3x Antonia from Farbenmix and one pattern from the latest Ottobre design issue 3/2011. Embroidery designs from HUUPS!

A visit to the castle

My aunt and uncle were here for a visit last week and we took them out for some sightseeing. We went up north, about an hour from here, to Dunnottar Castle. Not a proper castle, more ruins, but at a great location with stunning views:

And on the way back we came through Arbroath and stopped for some ice cream and fresh smokies. It's a lovely small fishing village, where you can sit at the harbour and watch the boats come in. Such a lovely place!

It's time again...

... for the sun hats to come out. Well, not really time yet when I look outside, but I thought I'd be prepared anyway :-) They always sell well at craft fairs, so I made quite a few in different colours and sizes:

After some discussion about what fabric the coat was going to be made of, Leoni and I agreed on plain denim with red/pink fleece. Sort of neutral. Leoni wanted a completely different fabric, but I didn't. So we kind of met half way. But as the blue by itself was quite boring, my embroidery machine had to get active again :-)
I made the coat in a size 122/128, still quite a bit on the big side, but this way it should still fit in autumn.
