Back and raring to go!

OK, so now I have brushed myself down, and stopped feeling sorry for myself. I have spent a not inconsiderable amount of money on new scissors, pins, needles and a really great project bag to keep it all in.
I have also eventually had the chance to actually started a new project; I am planning to make a fleece for Alex using the IMKE pattern from 'Sewing clothes kids loves':

by Nancy Langdon and Sabine Pollehn using this doubled faced olive/lime fleece from Dots and Stripes

( a lovely web shop, well worth a visit at any time).
At this precis moment I have only traced and cut out the pattern pieces, but I am hoping to get a chance to continue with it.

Oh dratt!

I appear to have lost the bag I made some time back, I would make a little link here for you to my earlier post, but I can't work out quite how to do that so you'll just have to scroll back to see it. It would have been quite annoying enough had it just been the bag which was lost, but in it was the green dress, which I was making a few adjustments too, and a rather lovely project bag in which I kept both my fabric scissors, and another pair of scissors, as well as a fair few sewing extras I had treated myself too over the last few months as well as the latest number of Ottobre and a Swedish sewing magazine my mum had just sent over, I just kept them in the bag to show the other ladies at the course. So essentially I've lost the first two things I've ever really completed, as well as some of my most expensive sewing equipment, so I am a little bit upset. I will however brush myself down and carry on, I hope to post fairly soon on some new project.
