We're back from our holiday in Germany and had a lovely time visiting family and friends and just chilling out. This time we took the ferry from Newcastle to Amsterdam, the water was very quiet (much to my liking as I'm not overly keen on boats :-) and on the other side it took us another 4hrs drive to get to my mum. That way we were a bit more flexible over there when it came to doing daytrips. Especially on the return journey we appreciated  having a car instead of flying as there are no luggage restriction....and there's always a lot to take back from Germany :-)

Hooded Jacket

Just before we go on holiday I wanted to show you a hooded jacket I made a few weeks ago. For the outer jacket I used lightweight outdoor nylon and Noahs stars jersey for the lining. The pattern is from the OTTOBRE issue 1/2010.

Skirt no 2

Burda pattern 8344, this time a more straight cut than the New Look pattern. Fairly easy to follow instructions, darts front and back, zip and pockets if desired. A good pattern for a workshop, I think. Now I have to look at suitable dates for the classes, will keep you posted once done.
