|Woolly hat and cowl for Dad (using Rowan Big Wool - just too snuggly)|
|Cowl for little sister (also in Rowan Big Wool)|
|Wiksten Tank for little sister in a fine cotton voile|
I just love the Wiksten patterns and am so glad I (over-)indulged and bought both the Tank and Tova Shirt patterns when they were re-released a couple of months ago. The fit of the tank is perfect (I made my sister try it on as soon as she'd unwrapped it), and I am especially pleased with how I managed to match up the pocket and seams on the pattern repeat. My little sister (not so little at 26) is thrilled with it too!
I must try to be more organised re Xmas makes this year. I didn't start any makes until well into December!
I was very fortunate to receive some very lovely gifts this Xmas. Amongst them were some sewing/craft-related goodies:
|The Colette Sewing Handbook; a roll of Liberty fabrics for quilting|
|A fantastic quilting book; 1.5m of gorgeous cotton voile|
What a treat!
I've got a few days of holiday this week, which I hope to dedicate to sewing (and tidying - yawn), so may have another project to report on before too long!
speak soon x
