Birthday dress

 There was a problem with the pattern for Abby's birthday dress. The neck binding measurement was given as 21 inches (easier to use imperial with the quilting ruler and cutting board) but I realised the night before her party, when the dress was otherwise finished, that that was huge. Looking at the other sizes, it was supposed to be 12 inches. There was no time to fix it then, so she wore a superhero skirt from Ana, Ma Petit Tresor
 I did manage to fix it by the following weekend for our photo shoot though. And then I took a few photos at home.

Fractal Broccoli

 Also known as Romanesco. You've got to admire such geometric form. And it's tasty too
