This is Simplicity pattern 9415 from circa 1997. Simple, easy and takes about 2 hours to make.
After having a fruitless shopping expedition finding nothing out there that was in any way interesting and all in either black or grey with a few animal prints thrown in, I was disgusted enough to turn back to this old faithful pattern and hunt around for some pretty material.
Good for cooler weather with a long sleeve T and scarf or warmer weather with short sleeves. Next I’m on the look out for some material for spring something in soft apricots. Team it with my ever trusty jeans and a scarf and we’ll call it done.

Hello Blog I have missed you so much!
I know I have been neglectful of your digital goodness for a long time now. I have left your pages languishing and empty of words, sentences and whole paragraphs not to mention photo sharing, I’m sorry.
It’s not that I haven’t wanted to, no not at all it’s just been a funny couple of months filled with changes and sickness’s and gloomy unfun feelings and it’s been soooo cold….but here I am now and you know I feel a corner turning and maybe see some light up ahead. Maybe it’s the sudden bit of sunshine that hints at Spring springing or maybe it’s just that I’ve finally got a bit of time completely alone to think about you and remember how much I miss you.
Anyway, I’m really excited cause I’m going away on a little trip all by my self this week. I’m heading off to Bendigo where I get to spend some time with my big boy (oh how I miss him) and then my mum and I are spending a night in Melbourne and then going to the Winter Masterpiece exhibition at the NGV, Klimt, Scheile, bliss!
I’ve also been working artwork for a local advertising company for a TV ad (exciting), making some felted toy gifts for some special little people (joy) and designing some mural ideas for a new child care centre.
I’ve even fitted in learning how to do a bit of yoga, (totally in the privacy of my own home thank you very much, way too humiliating in public ‘downward facing dog’ is a private matter me thinks!)
And you know what Blog? All this activity means I’m going to have heaps of things to tell you and photo’s too, promise.

Junelle over at yes and amen was my swap buddy and look what she sent me! How lovely is Romeo the sheep, I’m kinda thinking spring might be in the air and love might be on his mind?
Thank you so much Junelle he’s taking pride of place on my bookcase. xx
