Autumn!

It's coming, you can feel it in the air! The beginning of Autumn has always been my favourite time of the year. It feels much more like a fresh start than a new year does. Everything is back to normal after Summer, the air is fresh and crispy but it's still warm on the sunny side of the street and the colours in nature are so beautiful (not yet, but anyway...). My ideas are flowing and it's just great. Mostly. I need new clothes, a year ago I was pregnant and now, after breastfeeding 11 months my trousers are too big (and so out of fashion, why do I hate fixing my own clothes when I love sewing so much?). I am really going to make myself a pair of jeans, I found a pattern designed by Lustwear that I had forgotten about that looks allright. (p.s. I don't mind being a few kilos lighter than I used to be, it's just that I don't like to shop trousers, somehow I just prefer to go crazy in a fabric store.)

The Autumn winds made me finish the robot jacket I started to make for little E last Spring. It got lost in the projekt pile when Summer came to stay. But now it's ready and it still fits him very well. I'm not that fond of toys these days, though there is a real boom in making soft toys, I guess I am just so tired of collecting toys from the floor that even cute ones are my enemies these days. One exception is this robot made by Bitter betty (maybe it's a toy picker).

Another visitor via Flickr - your jacket is wonderful - I like the 'atom' detailing with the buttons very much and the back is just amazing.
