I'm back

Well so far everything is working today, yesterday I had phone and internet on the boys computer but not on mine, thankfully the tech person fixed it when he got home from work, well its his fault it was broken in the first place.
So in punishment I made him drive me to Ikea, you know this is usually not a good idea on a friday afternoon. Well, it wasn't a good idea yesterday either, the traffic on the way back was horrendous. We went to buy a bookcase and bedding but as usual came back with soooo much more!! Someone didn't measure the inside of his new car, so we had a teeny problem getting the bookcase in the car, I did try to NOT say "I told you to" but I couldn't help it!!

So here is the jumper and skirt I made this week......

...it was great fun, I think my nieces could have some fab outfits for Barbie by the time their birthdays come around, next up is a pink leatherette coat.....

Jamie is looking for some bright pink satin to line a waistcoat according to the message he sent me yesterday, he has a little hand sewing to re-do on his first one, he must be quite pleased with it, if he wants to make another, photos soon. He also asked if he could have one of my boxes to store his fabric in, hmmm not sure if I can give one up!

Love your new outfit ;0) Managed to persuade myself to have one G&T (ok - fullish disclosure, it might just have been more than one)- might have to have another tonight, just to check the quality, you understand

I've screwed up the blogger settings, so this is me, not Luna ...
The sweater & skirt are fab. Luna & Mailie are poised & ready to put an order in. I did wonder when you said you had knitted a jumper in about four days!
Can't wait to see the coat. Do you have enough fabric to make yourself a matching one?
