I've got to be C-R-A-Z-Y!!!

I'm about to do a month's stint of full time work ... after 17 years! On top of this, I'm looking after DD/DSIL's house and dog along with DF's house and 2 dogs, while all are on holidays.

How will I cope? Simple, I'll enter the One Pattern Many Looks competition on Patternreview . I figure I'll need a way to relax and what better way than with some sewing.

I plan to use this top pattern from Ottobre magazine.

The photo looks a little drab, but the line drawings shows it has great potential. The fabrics have been chosen - all knits. Firstly, a marled blue cotton lycra, next a poly/lycra in hot pink with a printed mesh over lay and finally an asian inspired print in a rayon/lycra. I have some embellishments in mind, but think I will see how the finished items "speak"to me.
