|Needles to say...|
When I went to school and we had classes in handicraft, I thought that it was fun. We got to try to stitch, crochet, knit, color fabric and make tiny cute fluffy Moomin characters. We had even lessons in how to use a sewing machine.
It was then that crazy thing happened. I was around 12 years old and sat infront a sewing machine. I had my fabrics ready, my thread and I just had to ”hit the gas”. And did I hit the gas! The needle went fast and right through my index finger on the right hand. With thread and all. No blood, but I had a dark blue thread through my finger. And it hurt. I must have been pale and near to faint. My friend helped me and we did not say a thing to the teacher.
So, even if I have diabetes and deal with needles of all kinds on daily basis, there is something with needles in a sewing machine and those you use when sewing by hand. I love to sew, but these needles scare me a bit.
But, anyway. I made some new clothes for Esther. I used a pattern from Antique Lilac and I let the photos talk. I will see if I can make something new to Zipporah too.

|The new outfit. She was not so keen on the shawl. It is not so cold outside, yet!|
