It was Chris's dads 60th birthday (I know 60 ! it seems quite young really for a grandfather (my father is in his 80's), but he was only 18 when Chris was born...
We went out for Sunday lunch yesterday with Grandpa John and his partner Sue..
The children brush up quite well...
Just never seem to be able to get a photo of them all looking the same way !
I made new dresses for the younger two girls. One of the nursery mums gave me some Laura Ashley fabric a few months ago and asked if I could make use of it, can I ever ! I think that it looks great with the Amy Butler Sunspots..
I made Freya a top ( it was actually meant to be tunic length, but I was chatting to a friend when cutting out and cut the front to tunic length and the back to top length !), using this Amy Butler pattern..
She chose some fabric last time we went to Ikea, I was not sure about it at all, but when it was actually made up I think the bold pattern looks quite good and suits her colouring..
Freya was very happy with it and has asked me to make more in different fabrics but in the tunic length, I think it would be nice done in cord and worn with bright tights..
We had a lovely meal, but the highlight for the children was going back to Grandpa Johns house for cake..
