Of to Fiji !

Oh tomorrow we head off to Fiji - I am so excited!! A long awaited family holiday - it will be bliss - it is one time I am happy to be without my sewing machine for more than a couple of days.

I borrowed some books from the library today in anticipation of some relaxation time.

I will take some crafty stuff though - maybe just some small bits of fabric & needle & thread to make some yo-yo's.

I am hoping that Kylie (from craftedbykylie) has received her parcel if not look away now, as here are some pics of the clothes I made her sweet pea in return for my gorgeous knitted hat (see a few blogs ago).
This one is kind of my own smock top pattern (they are all quite similar really) & the pants were from a long shorts pattern which I added the frill too.
The dress is a farbenmix "Cara" pattern. It has some ricrac trim & buttons at the shoulders. Lovely for winter with a skivvy underneath.
I hope you like them Kylie.
I also made a pair of chenille pants for her little man too.
