My blogging has been more and more infrequent lately, so I thank you readers who have stuck with me through these breaks. I don't think I will be doing a 2011 recap as I still have some 2011 sewing to show you.
Photos were taken in December when we went to Brisbane for a night away and entertained ourselves by visiting the Matisse exhibition in the Art Gallery.

The dress made in linen wore very well on a warm summer day and I am extremely pleased with the fit. I had hoped to show you a back shot to show my broad back alteration, but the photographer did not quite understand my request and the photo is mainly of the back of my head and shoulders - not exactly what I wanted - you will just have to take my word for it that it worked really well.
Other sewing from last year I have not blogged about is the Strawberry bag from the Burdastyle website.I made these as some little gifts for some of the women in my family. I recommend this pattern if you you are looking for something like this. The best thing is I used all fabrics I had in my stash. Quilting cottons for the strawberry and a poly-cotton for the main bag (not shown open - sorry!) The only thing I had to purchase was the toggles. They have been very attractively photographed here by my photographer in our strawberry patch.
Also in 2011, I crocheted an amineko cat. I bought the pattern in Lincraft but the pattern is available for free on Ravelry. Don't know why I crocheted this cat - but I love it!
I also love my Lulubelle - pictured here, stalking the garden on Xmas Day.
I have one more dress to show you that I made in 2011. Hope to get back to you soon... Ciao!
