Happy New Year folks! Yes, it’s me! Well, that was an unintentional hiatus away from the blog and social media!

It turned out that, in the end, my ankle was significantly more damaged than we initially thought and so I had to sit out most of November and early December until it really started healing properly.

You download the pattern with the class and it was along the lines of the skirt I was looking for, so that decided it – the Cleo it was!
