Daughter loving

Email from my daughter - 960 kilometres away

"could you make this for me for next saturday night in a bright red fabric, perhaps jersey?


i saw it in zara and when i went back it was gone...

it had three quarter length sleeves in the shop, this was the closest thing i could find to it.

if you cant thats ok, i know your starting your job next week."

Now I just happen to have a piece of fire engine red synthetic in my stash that I was wondering what on earth I'd do with it and why I had it.

I also found just the pattern in my Burda mags. Snip, snip ...watch this space.

  1. Well, you have plenty of time and really nothing on the horizon that's important. Watching your space!

  4. That sounds like an email I could have received, but it would have been from one of my daughters asking for something for one of their children, or from when they were in college! What a lucky daughter you have!!!!!!!

  5. Why does that sound familiar? I do like the second line though. I'm looking forward to the photos.

  8. Funny story! I would have done just what I know my Mum would have done; namely, sent her the pattern and the fabric... ;)
