- The new Petite Purls is out. I really want to knit this for one of the girls.
- I made this Green Beef Curry the other day - yum (a warning - it is hot).
- I have bought some of these sand carving tools - they should keep some kids (and adults) occupied down the beach at Christmas regardless of the weather.

A Modkids Kyoko dress for Amelia. I have had this pattern for a year and have put off making it as it always looked difficult, if only I had pf spent 5 minutes actually opening and looking at the pattern. It really is easy - a basic dress, some binding and an obi belt. The thing that took the longest was cutting and sewing the binding. The only problem with the pattern was the belt pieces do not fit on the fabric - you are meant to cut 2 pieces on the fold, but the pieces are longer than the width of any quilting cotton (it would be fine if your fabric was 150cm wide. So there are seams in the belt. I also just cut the skirt in 2 pieces (not 6 strips) as I just used one fabric. Other than that it is a great pattern. I would love to make a light weight denim one for winter with red binding and a red belt.
