Where did the time go?

An invitation came in the mail the other day to the 7th birthday party of Missy’s very best friend. I felt a little sad that she’s turning 7, it means that Missy will be 7 all too soon too. This little friend, Laura and Missy are great friends. Laura’s mum and I went to school together and by complete chance ended up living two doors away from each other some 20 years later while we were both pregnant with our girls. Crazy coincidence but so wonderful.

Missy and I decided to make her a coat and as she’s a pink and purple loving girl we went for a deep rose coloured cord with some coordinating paisley. The pattern is Uptown Girl by Make it Perfect. A fabulous pattern, so cute and such a fun sew. I didn’t put a layer of fleece in between the exterior and lining as the pattern calls for, with our mild winters it would be much too warm.

So number 2 on the list is done and dusted. By this rate I’ll be finished Chappy’s quilt in 5 mins.

Hope she likes it.
