Originally, a very long time ago, it was a beautiful cashmere cardigan of my friend's grandmother.
She inherited it.
At some point, sadly, it shrunk in the wash.
So my friend turned it into a hooded jacket/vest for her daughter.
Her daughter grew out of it.
Now my daughter can wear it (hopefully, for quite a bit).
And I already know who's next in line...

Well, going out with kids... is madness. Everything is a potential hazard/ nuisance to others. And then out of the blue, a french waiter lifts one kid onto a bar stool, a bar keeper mesmerizes with his tricks and the little one is fully occupied with 'our' cheese platter.
Bliss. For a moment.
Wishing everyone a happy weekend.

Searching for sun screen, not finding sun hats, quickly sewing a stripey dress and having to buy sandals with what seemed like half the people of Barcelona.
By the way - I am collecting onion peel for this

here and here. Instead of resizing, I wanted to try a new one. Oliona pointed me to a ready made Raglan pattern - Nº 15 in Ottobre Kids Fashion 6/2010.
I've made quite a few. This one is my favourite - I really like the different shades and wrinkles of the hand dyed fabric.
