I managed to do some more on my jacket before my DGD arrived, but then my attention was redirected as normal!
First my son presented me with a shop bought Christmas stocking and asked if I could embroider Alana's name on it. I found some fleece fabric and used that to do the embroidery on and then stitched the name tag on by hand.
Shortly after Alana arrived, my daughter turned up with Bentley, and we managed to get a 2 1/2 year old little girl and a 10 month old Great Dane puppy to sit still long enough for us to take a photograph. Definitely one for the album especially as I have a similar photograph taken when my daughter was around 3 or 4 with my first Great Dane Mitch - Alana reminds me so much of my daughter.
When I purchased this lovely wool and cashmere blend, I also bought this contrasting pure silk to sew a coordinating blouse. I can see the jacket and the blouse with a lovely black skirt or trousers.... this is a mini wardrobe in the making.
This is my progress so far. Will I finish it by tomorrow night? Hmmmmm I have to sew in the shoulder pads, press, clip and trim the seams after sewing the lining to the jacket and finish the hem.......... I might be lucky and be able to finish it before I go away for work this week and who knows maybe take it with me.
Hope you all had a good day.
Catch you later............
