Just in time....

... for the Christmas party at school today I finished Leoni's "Christmas" dress. The pattern is the Duo Tone balloon dress from the OTTOBRE magazine 6/2011 and the fabric is purple fine cord embroidered with a star and reindeer (she insisted on having them on her dress :-) And as she didn't have anything to go with it I made her a jersey turtle neck top in navy jersey.(OTTOBRE pattern issue 4/2007).

Update on the building work

We have reached the messy stage now: the painters sanded the walls this morning and the whole house is now covered in a thin layer of very fine dust!!! Let me tell you, it is EVERYWHERE. But the workers have been so very busy, the first layer of paint is on and next week the floor gets laid and the raidiators will be fixed, so we finally will have a warm house again :-)
