It can't be May already

We had our last drive to the Royal North Shore Hospital today for hopefully ever.  Tony finished his cardiac rehab on Monday and the participants were summonsed this afternoon for a final debriefing.  I guess passing out parades are not a good idea for cardiac patients, so instead they had a general report and pat on the back for completing the course.

Life is getting back to normal and it's good to see Tony finally returning to his old self.  It also means a little more time for sewing!

And it couldn't have come at a better time.  

Ever since I was a pattern tester for this gorgeous skirt by Jen Hagedorn of Tie Dye Diva, I have become a fan of her patterns which are always so clear and concise and the designs are adorable.  While I do create my own designs, sometimes it's lovely to work on a well-crafted garment designed by someone who is top of her game.

This pop over pinafore for babies 0-24 months is among Jen's latest releases.

It marries so beautifully with another new release, a baby peasant dress.

They go together hand in hand so perfectly.  

I will be listing them on my Etsy and MadeIt shops in next next day or so and am working on yet another Tie Dye Diva release which should be finished in a short time.  Wait until you see it!

These delightful sailor shorts are by Brownie-Goose Patterns and are now available in my shops.  

It's good to be back sewing a little more regularly and even better, it's wonderful to have the patient looking so well.  By all accounts the second half of the year should be a whole lot better than the first.

Congrats on Tony's 'graduation''s all good for the rest of the year.
And of course your designs are looking wonderful. Love the mix of patterns and am besotted with the shorts.
