Der Nikolaus war hier...

Here, Nikolaus (St. Nicholas) comes with presents for the children on 6th December. He usually brings some apples, oranges, nuts and chocolate as well as useful gifts like clothes and maybe a small toy.

I had made shirts and wool trousers for my boys and thought they might as well be brought to them by Nikolaus...
The shirts are made from a fantastic printed terry fabric that I got in a bog box with fabrics, bought via a sewing forum. Ever since I got the fabric I wanted to make a shirt from it - and now, finally, I made two after more than a year...

And they got a pair of these wool trousers each. Brown for the little one and purple for the older one. Sizes 86/92 and 110/116.
Both of them love their shirts. Even the little one fetches his every morning when we get dressed and gives it to me to put on.

Soooo excited! Project Run and Play Auditions

 When I saw auditions for Season 6 of Project Run and Play in January were coming up, I also thought about entering... how cool would it be it I were picked?
But what to chose for the auditions? In the end, I decided to go for this outfit - crocodile pants and tortoise shirt - because I LOVE how these pants turned out.

And... guess what! They chose me (ME!) as one of the five designs that have the chance to be voted in as one of the two remaining contestants. What a nice surprise to find an email telling me this when I woke up this morning. Check out all the other outfits, there are so many skilled designers out there!

And now it's up to you to choose the designer you want to go through to the real competition. Voting starts today at 2 pm.
