Holiday at Home

I don't have much of an actual summer holiday this year, but luckily I had some weeks free earlier so I was able to go home. My mum and I made a LOT of stuff, and here are two things I managed to capture in a photo.

1) Ravioli, with homemade pasta as well. It was a Jamie Oliver recipe, with mozzarella, prosciutto, basil, parmesan and sundried tomatoes. It was really nice, the pasta was a bit thick but as we didn't use our pasta machine we were never going to get it paper thin. We did use the the 'oo' flour though, so we were quite authentic... Anyway, it tasted good and was filling, which are the main things I look for in a meal!

2) A dress! My mum was going to make it for me, but she suggested I make it, and I thought, why not! I want to learn more dressmaking skills, so this was a good experience. I have made clothes before, but this is the first thing I really properly made, if you know what I mean! My mum did still help me, but I actually did everything myself, right from figuring out how much fabric I needed to picking out the tacking at the end. I have received lots of compliments on it, but most importantly, I love it! I am going to make the same dress in different fabrics, so you might be seeing it again at some point...
