Strawberry Jam and Patterns

A new Oliver and S pattern - the Hopscotch Skirt and top and the Crepe dress from Colette. I love the smaller independent pattern companies that are around now. The instructions in these patterns are fantastic and I am hoping to get a chance to try them in the next few weeks.
Platypii and caterpillars are winging their way to Retrospections.
The strawberries in the shop were cheap enough for jam yesterday. I can't see this lot lasting long.

The dress looks cute... be nice to see how yours turns out. I have an O&S pattern that I bought almost 2 yrs ago and never used yet... I'm not much of a pattern follower so it's nice to know that they are easy.

I love those platypii....not that we see much of those in Ireland. But as a kid I remember cutting out pictures of them in magazines and sticking them in a scrapbook. I thought they were cute...but yours are even cuter!

Just bought the Crepe pattern too for a new summer dress. I like the Collette patterns...made the Lady Grey coat over winter.
