One of the new blogs I’ve discovered recently is Clio & Phineas. Go check it out! Now! Clio makes fabulous stuff and I love the way she writes.

She’s been generously giving away some patterns that she’s destashing and lucky old me secured this lovely number.

Clio popped it in the post and it arrived this morning.  Miles sooner than I think either of us anticipated!

I’m so pleased with this and astonished, although I really shouldn’t be, at just how kind and generous folk in this crafty corner of blogland are.

So thank you again, Clio.  I imagine this will be going on the sewing list in the next month or so.  I’ve got plans for both sleeveless versions.
