Yay - I did it - everything I wanted to sew in merino is now done! I have to say I am pretty chuffed with myself for not leaving the fabric folded neatly in my fabric box for the whole of winter!
Now I want to design and make some merino pyjamas for Baby J - it seems funny that he wears merino all day then just cotton pyjamas (with a wool vest) for bed! I am thinking of trying to do some funky applique on them, and if they go well making some for my nephews first birthday.
PS The princess dress went well and is finished, but didn't fit Little Miss B, so I lent it to a friend who was also going to the show. Will post a photo later this week.
