Jersey top burda 09/2012

Antrim, Co Antri...






I made mum some of these tops a while back and she looks great in them. Mum had the orange one on her wednesday night and asked me did i need a photo of it!! I had it photographed just not with mum in it lol. I decided to make her another one for our day (and might) out last saturday. I mulled over what colour to use for the sleeves as all three looked good. I ended up using the bright pink and she loved it x

      Thanks so much schnui, i think mum looks incredible and looks a good ten years younger than she is. She has a great zest for life and is full of fun so this helps x

    I think it’s time for you to go international!!! Or official, rather. Think of a brand name!!

    wise choice, the pink looks fab and suits her. She looks just great!! I do love the orange one though, that is a wonderful colour. xx yeah, what is the deal with that dreaded pink line? Don’t you just hate it, when that happens? :0( I have been trying for a while tonight, getting too frustrated now. will have another go tomorrow.
