Summer's coming soon (isn't it?)

With summer (hopefully) on it's way I've made a couple of outfits for me:

Quilted Jacket

I've made many coats and jackets for Chloe over the years, but never for I decided it was about time that changed. The jacket is made from a pre quilted cotton fabric which is lovely and light but quite warm and I used an Ottobre Design pattern called Windbreaker as I like princess style seams as I find they give a good fit.

New York New York

Two tops for Chloe, both with a common theme however.....

....because I couldn't resist the fabrics!

I can't believe it's November....

How time has flown...Chloe started secondary school in September and loves it, celebrated her 12th birthday at the end of September and went bowling with her friends:

Having grown a lot in height over the past six months a new bike was an ideal birthday present:

And that is why my blog has been so quiet... I've been too busy sewing!!!

Chloe's Year 6 Leavers Ball

I can't believe the time has nearly come for my little girl to leave primary school. She's had a great year, came home with a fantastic report on Friday and went back to school for an evening to remember....

I've had a wonderful weekend celebrating my 40th Birthday, which started with a party on Saturday night, being spoilt rotten by friends and family with some fantastic presents and culminating in a family dinner tonight.
