Rainbow

Here's my beautiful girl, with the new rainbow skirt I made for her. She chose the fabric from my stash and I went to work. Look mum, no pattern! I just winged it and I'm very pleased with how it turned out. It's elastic-waisted, has a drop waist with topstitching and gathering, as well as two cute pockets with gathered tops. I'm pretty proud of myself - I think I've finally worked out how to do this! Romily was off to a party today with Daddy and Tristy. I'm sitting in the Qantas Club at Canberra Airport, awaiting the first of three flights to Stockholm, with an enroute touch-down in Bangkok. Another work trip - this time for two weeks. I'm going to miss the kids and Carl!

Romily is gorgeous and so is her skirt. (So talented, you!!!!)
You have such a busy life... gadabouting the world for work, sewing, writing, loving your beautiful family. I don't know how you do it, but I'm very impressed.

Romy has changed a lot - she's beautiful and her new skirt is very pretty. Travel safely.
