handmade holiday

homemade capri dressThings been a little quiet over on the blog, back home now and to some amazing sunshine too.  The monster and I went to Sorrento and had a fantastic time, the photo of me above is on Capri in my Burda sundress.  Its a lovely dress to wear, although will have to ajust the strap length.

Sorrento The monster took Caroline Lawrence‘s From Ostia to Alexandria and we discovered some amazing places as well as the world famous Pompeii.  Below is the view from Pollios Felix.

PompeiiNow I’m home getting ready to put some new ideas together for quilts and a little dressmaking too.
