Hi all! I am starting a new Tag in my blog - Tween sewing. It seems that my 10 years old... well, she wants to wear certain things, certain colors, and a twirly dress no longer does the job :-(. I saw first signs of it last year, but now..... I promised her that we will buy cloths for her. and we caught some.. but.. these arehard to find forget the price, let's say it's not the issue.. some of the clothes I see are either too short, too adult like, or I just can't find a good fit. we baught some, but I also wnt to mke some. Ottobree magazine is a good source for that. I don't have many issues (keep thinking of subsribing to the magazine and keep postponing that, because I hate tracing from their patterns!)This time I made an effort.

I thought I'm done with the blog... I don't really have the time to manage it, and on top of that a month ago my computer, with all the pictures on it, stopped working. I'm not sure it can be fixed!!! I hope to get to that soon. However, I realised that when starting a new item, I often refer to my blog for comments about fit, changes I made, etc. even when starting with a new pattern, I like to document lessons learned from it... So, I'm keeping the blog. I'll do my best to display the relevant items here... by that I mean that if I make 3 items of the same pattern, identical other than size or fabric... no need to document them. I have quiet a few months of items to display.. but many pictures are in the old (coruppted!!!) computer. So this is from the last month. So, first, I want to show pictures from my dd's tenth birthday party! here so no need to say more. A great pattern!
