One for the little chick

It's late, and I should be sleeping rather than blogging, but I finally finished a pair of rompers that have been slowly coming together over the last week and wanted to share them with you.

(Excuse the 'flashed' photography of this shot - it's night time and I haven't ironed these either, the legs actually are even!! The colours are also richer than this shows. But you get the idea.)

Sometimes there don't seem to be enough hours in the day - a common problem I know, but it frustrates me that a somewhat simple project can take a number of short sittings over a few days to complete rather than a straight out 1-2 hours.

Regardless of how they came to be, I am really happy with the result.

Yes they're bright - but that's the way I like it!
No soft pastel pinks for my little chick, it's bright birds all the way.

The orange spot is just from Spotlight but matched perfectly with the Erin McMorris birds.

The pattern is from Ottobre 3/2007, design 5. See, they started life as pink rompers.

LOL - ditto re flash photography and many short stints. I am also an 'anti-pink' mother :) Romily wears pink, natch, but also every other colour including blue :) Well done!

They did start life as sweet pink rompers but I love your version too. I love pink but I try to steer away from too much pink. Not always successful but I do try :)
