Ottobre Sewing

One of the best things about twins is that there is always someone to play with especially as they get older. The first year with them was really difficult, but it is much easier now. They are quite happy playing with each other. The best things about our little house are I can hear the girls wherever I am ( and see them most of the time) and there isn't loads of housework. These two things combined with Eva having a good afternoon sleep yesterday resulted in some sewing time. Tops from Ottobre 1/2008. I love this pattern. So simple and quick and it looks great. Grace chose this pink kombi van material - one of my favourites.
Eva with her eyes open and not screaming - it doesn't happen often, but she loves the bath

Kate, I love the girls new outfits and the way you snap photos while they are running away. (I can imagine they don't stand still long enough)
Eva looks gorgeous. Look at those gorgeous big eyes.
Hope everything is settling down.
Hugs & Kisses Fiona
