A bit of sewing on a sunny day





Today I met up with Twila Jean for sewing and distracting her from unpacking moving boxes :) We both worked on blouses, since we have a lack of balance with skirts and blouses, and later went cardigan hunting. What is it about finding a good cardigan that's so difficult?

Since it was such a beautiful day out we enjoyed it while the kidlets and doggie played out in her new yard, like a little taste of spring :)

I hope your blouse turns out beautiful, I recently found a pretty cream cardigan with little gold buttons, but I hope you find some luck soon!

How cute! I would love a day where I could just sew away in the sunshine.

I've given up on finding the perfect cardigan, and started knitting(!) one instead. Hope you blouse comes out well!

I've been sewing up a lot of separates lately too; it seems my closet is rather lopsided with dresses. Which is fun, but sometimes a gal just want to mix things up! ;) This weekend I'm hoping to work on a pair of 30s slack to expand my pants collection a bit.

I finally got rid of a black cardigan I liked because of its retro fit and awesome shell buttons. It suffered from vintage armpit stench. :( I replaced it with two brightly colored cardigans from Target. They're not quite the same.

Yes! Cardigans (good ones)are so hard to find. I am in a quest to find a good red one...
