Cinnamon Cream Oyster cakes

Tosca cake

I thought you might like the Me Made desserts first. I love to bake for special occasions and the recipes are on my food blog.

Here’s my church outfit for a cool Sunday morning on Day 19.
Shirt – Butterick shirt with Pattern Magic double collar
Reversable jacket – Made in 2011

By the afternoon, I took the little ones to the park to kick around a ball. Thanks Amy for taking this pic.
Skinny jeans – Vogue 1204 This wool blend fabric is perfect for cooler weather.

Here’s Mum in a Me-Made fleece fully lined Burda 7749 coat and Me-made lined self-drafted skirt, off to church. I think I should make another jacket for Mum this season. 

Then Day 20 at work I rugged up for work and Jeanne took this shot.
Top – Jalie 2921 scarf top
Navy wrap – Simplicity 2603 wrap
Jacket – McCalls 6292 snakeskin trimmed jacket
Trousers – Burda 7746 lined trousers

Day 21 is an after work pic. I made this wool skirt many years ago with a double-breasted jacket and a short skirt too. The fabric was given to me by an aunt from overseas so it took me some time to cut into it and I will always keep it as a memory of her and that visit.
Sandwich bolero from 2011. This is a good travel piece.
Top – Kwik Sew 3740
Skirt –  never blogged. That’s how long ago I made it.


The gloves have done my head in and after seeing that very few people have made gloves on PR, I’m rethinking this project. So the gloves are on hold. I may need to hand sew them.

MMM12 Day 27:

We had just finished brekkie out and I bought the Sunday papers and brioche for lunch with a cuppa. It was a bit chilly again.

Jacket: Minoru jacket.
Top: Butterick 5562 toile.
Jeans: Vogue jeans 8774. These woven jeans are a good fit. There’s no spandex in this pair.

MMM12 Day 28 (middle me):
Tops: Made-me underlayer merino knit top; Upper top Kwiksew 3740
Jacket: Toile jacket that I haven’t blogged before. McCalls 8971.
Skirt: Anne Taylor skirt that’s been sized down a couple of notches.
I was supposed to have a meeting with a senior manager and it was postponed.

MMM12 Day 29 (left me):
Top: Jalie scarf top 2921
Jacket: Lincraft 1082 that I made in 2009
Skirt: Check skirt you saw on day 4 
The meeting went ahead and my project got approved. Yay.

MMM12 Day 30 (right me):
Top: Butterick 5526 toile
I do have a made me jacket today but it’s not in view so it doesn’t count. I’m pooped so that’s why I’ve got no real colour on today.

Best Pattern contest collection

When the Best Pattern Contest was announced 5 weeks ago, I thought it might be ‘fun’ *roll eyes* to see if I had enought of these patterns to pull together a collection. I had cut out the jalie jeans but got distracted with other sewing projects ie my 1960’s entry in the Pitt Trading’s $1/m bin challenge, finalising the responses on the PR Vintage contest and then participating in the RTW contest. Both were lots of fun.So you saw the flurry of sewing in the last week of this contest.
Now the contest voting has commenced and each PR member has 5 votes.
If you think any of my collection meets the contest criteria, your click of confidence ie vote, will make me smile (better).

Jalie scarf collar knit
Simplicity wrap
Kwik Sew Cowl neck knit

And I promise that’s it when it comes to entering contests this year. My work load is starting to increase and that won’t stop until 1 Nov so I’ll be working on a few ‘slow sewing’ projects but still learning new techniques.
