I've made Elsie a shirred sundress tonight. I've never done shirring before, but after a few false starts it was pretty straightforward. I'm just hoping it fits, as I measured the straps against another dress as she was in bed.

I uploaded a pinafore dress for my pals wee one. Its actually the second I've done recently but I didn't get a good pic of the first.

Apart from that I've been working on project:curtain - This new house is chilly and all the curtains are thin and unlined so I'm going to try insulate every window Eeek! Two down, 15 odd to go. I bought 25meters of thermal blackout lining, not sure it'll be enough.

It's so cold here right now (16C in the day, 7C at night) that I had to buy MJ a hot water bottle. Which meant I had to make him a.... Ninjago hot water bottle cover! He looked so cute all cwtched up to his Ninja in bed last night :D Photos on the Flickr pool soon.

And that, my friends, is one of the reasons I was forced to leave the UK - my total inability to cope with temperatures below 20C!
