because I don’t have much nice to say. Okay, that’s a bit melodramatic but we were all sick pretty much the whole time and I just need to get it off my chest that it was very disappointing. We didn’t participate in almost all of our traditional Christmas activities and it really bummed me out. Don’t get me wrong, I am still very appreciative of our overall good health and well being but I really missed our traditional Christmas.
But what’s done is done and it’s a new year with new promise so let’s focus on something happier, like this sweet dress. I’m always jealous when Anina gets to be a pattern tester for Kathy because it seems like so much fun. It turns out I was right. I got to pattern test this dress for Liesl who has started her own pattern company — oliver + s — with the first line available this Spring. The print is Alexander Henry, I think, that I got from Sandi. The pattern was size 3-6 months and since we don’t have any baby girls — or any babies for that matter — around this is going into the gift stash because like Melissa I think having a stash of premade, handmade gifts is a great idea.
Happy New Year everyone, I just need to get a few more photos before I can round-up the 2007 projects but I better do it quick since I already have something finished in 2008 to show you.
