Princess dress for N

I bought my own sewing machine when I was about 16 and still living at home. Most of the times I've used it to adjust the length of my curtains (few and easy to count).

Being home with A I talked two other mothers (also beginners of sewing) into making princess dresses for our older daugthers (4-5 years of age).

I mean - how hard can it be?

Three beginners, three babies and three months later we've finished.

The dress is best at a distance but N likes it and she now have her own princess dress.

Granny stripe blanket - yes yes yes!

The blanket is getting bigger and bigger. I have done 4 repeats out of the 6 I'm planning to do. I like the colors but realized I forgot one (pomegate) and is then only using 16 in the Lucy pack. The acrylic yarn is softer than I thought and the colors look great together.

I will have yarn left and maybe later will do a another one and then I think I'll pick the yarn in random order.

Yesterday I went to Avigmaskan and saw "Louise" and 17 other Hjärtkatter leave for their new adventures and caretakers.N was OK with me making a cat for another baby and I promised to make her one as well. I even bought yarn in pink and purple (her two favorite colors, being 4.5 years). However she wanted one that looked the same. Me being a nice mother (I think) I went along and the sibling without heart problem is almost ready (3 paws missing).
