What a Girl Wants

One happy Floral Fantasma girl 

Ronja picked it out. I’m not too good at letting her choose the fabric (it’ll all end up pink), but this time she got to. I gave her the opportunity to pick the fairy fabric, and she did at first, but dropped it when she realized there wasn’t enough for this blouse as well as a summer dress in a few months. Good thing I had the “Floral Fantasma” from Alexander Henry as well. She went with some red dots from Moda for the neck line casing and sleeve edges. It’s girly, that’s for sure – and she loves it!

Floral Fantasma Blouse 

Today I made a blouse from the same pattern (Onion 20022) for Frida. It’s finished but I haven’t got pictures yet, so you’ll have to wait a bit for that one.


In the meantime, we had a wonderful weekend. Nice and slow – we’re not getting out much at the moment, because we really, really don’t want Frida to catch a cold or something before her surgery next week. Her odds health-wise are pretty bad at the moment too – Mads has been having a severe cold this past week, and Ronja has just had a fever for a few days. Frida is still in the clear, and I am as well, so we’re keeping our fingers crossed. Of course, if she’s sick in any way when it’s time for the operation, they won’t operate, and they may push it a few months. Anyway, there’s no way we can keep the girls away from each other – above you see Ronja reading to Frida.

Mads finished building the small fence out front today – all it needs now is some paint.

Finished - all it needs now is paint

    Astrid, Ronja is so gorgeous. And I love the photo of her reading to Frida. I hope Frida’s able to stay healthy to have her surgery, I’ll keep my fingers crossed! Of course, the shirt is gorgeous – I want one in my size 🙂

    Hey all – thank you so much! Sorry I haven’t replied earlier – we do have a few things to think about these days. 🙂 Thanks a bunch!

    That is the sweetest sister picture ever. I adore that top – I checked out the Onion pattern online – so did you just sew the casing closed and add elastic inside? Did you need to make any other changes I really like the pattern and want to try it!
