raiding the archives - march 2009

while i organise myself and recover a little from the busy-ness of the last weeks i thought i'd take a look back through last years photo albums...

in february beautiful jax was born to family friends, and to celebrate i embarked upon my first sewing project in many years and made her a teeny-tiny dress. i found the free patten at, some old material (left over from making a nightie for my sister when she was little) at the back of a cupboard, and bought a little coordinating all looked sooooo simple! of course after so long away from the machine, and working through headaches, it wasn't - but hours of frustration later this was the result. it was so rewarding to actually have completed a project and to do something creative again. and it did look very very cute on jax.

(i wrapped it in a piece of repurposed striped cellophane that came around some flowers, tied with a little bit of leftover bright pink mohair wool and used a card i'd been unable to resist at one time or another )
