Apron Dress

This is K's favourite dress and one of my first attempts at sewing. I followed Bridget's tutorial, which was super easy and straight forward. K loves it and if it was up to her, she would wear it every day. Unfortunately I used some very thin/see through cotton. I know better for next time. I will definately make more next year, when summer comes back.
I think we are getting closer to knitting time again, I have to remember to start earlier than last the time I finished my projects it was too warm to wear them.

The perfect week

M took the week off to spend some time with us and wow did we have fun:

  • we saw M's parents and his grandma
  • we went to IKEA (yes I bought some fabric and the wrong part for our shelf - I don't know how I always manage to get something wrong when I go there, I must get so caught up in the whole experience that my brain stops working )
  • I managed to get some sewing done (yippee)
  • we went swimming

and we went to the seaside

The day at the seaside couldn't have been better, lovely sunshine, a light breeze and a picnic. K loves the sea and the beach, she danced on the sand and had a swim in the sea. C had fun trying to eat stones and sand, enjoyed crawling on the beach and bathing her feet in the water.
