Happy Sunday!

I hope to get a bit more regular on this blog. I have made a few things since last year but it seems too much for a single post. Let's focus on the now and then.

Today we're going to celebrate the third birthday of a little neighbour so I've made her an elephant. It's my third and it's true that the more you make something the easier it becomes. This one has less faults than its two predecessors. I have used fabric from Tilda, I think they're so beautiful, and the pattern is from this book, which is a great book for beginners.

I received two Japanese pattern books this week and am planning on making this skirt first. I have long wanted a denim skirt with a pleat at the front, I'm thinking of making it all denim.

For the sweet tooth, here's a little pic of Jamie's baked chocolate tart out if his first book. Mmmhhh, so good! The recipe is here. I used "only" 100g butter, but it is very rich all the same. I used to make it often when I first got the book, and am glad I've made it again because it's easy to make and so impressive when you taste it.
