The blue ones please

Tilly was uncertain about this dress and the blue trim idea but when I offered her up the button bowl she pounced on these ones and embraced the trim idea.

I realise that our so called summer has long since left the building but I am still unable to resist the lure of linen and I think with a long sleeved T and some tights or leggings this dress will still manage a little autumnal life.

Tilly wants me to add some embroidery to this dress, she suggested a blue flower, but I rather like it as it stands; simple and clean looking. Of course I am not five years old and at five years old less is very definitely not more! The dress pattern came from this Japanese book, ISBN978457911194-7

I have been a poor blogger of late my computer and indeed crafting time has been seriously curtailed. I am housebound with a sickly child, the boy is still sick but on the upward turn I think. In a strange way it has been nice to be forced to spend time doing nothing. In between his bouts of dozing we have snuggled under quilts on the sofa, watched films, read books, played Suduko, chatted and enjoyed each other's company. Taking care of him actually been rather fun. Of course I do not wish my children to be ill and poor Dylan has missed out on a school trip and a Cub camp so the timing could not have been worse, however as my children grow older and more independent it is quite a nice feeling to be so needed again. I took a decision to stop fretting about what I wasn't getting done and just sit down and enjoy the opportunity to be together.

Cool blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere?
A design like yours with a few simple tweeks would really make my blog stand out.
Please let me know where you got your theme.
Thanks a lot
