When Sunday rolls around, our family will be headed for Cape Cod Mass, for 2 fun-filled months of beaching, biking, barbecuing…..”Todays post brought to you by the letter B”!!!!
I just love the East coast, when compared to the West, here in California anyway, it is much simpler and easier, in a way. You go to the beach covered in sunblock and read a book, while the kids swim and dig holes, many holes. The people in the East are so Patriotic and friendly, they celebrate Independence Day as though it’s Christmas with all the houses decked out in Red, White and Blue, It is quite the event.
With my mom, safely home in Michigan from her vacay here in California I can now concentrate on packing for Cape Cod. I am bringing many sewing projects to get me through the summer. I have to say that I am pretty excited to narrow down those many projects to a few. Sometimes I have so many projects that I would like to accomplish that it becomes overwhelming and unattainable. I also have a sewing workshop planned for late June that takes place in Vermont! A place I have never been. This is a Heather Ross Workshop which should be a ton of fun!
Packing for Cape Cod is one thing, but I have also been trying to pack in a few sewing projects before heading East. I have sewn another pair of Clovers, Iris Shorts and a Sencha. All from Colette Patterns. Here are a few photos.
This is my Sencha that I sewed with Liberty Of London Fabric. I embellished this particular blouse with a piping that I made all myself!
Here are some close-up shots of my handy work. And……
this is the blister that I acquired from turning my bias tape inside out onto the piping! Ouch!
Clovers and Iris to follow…
Both in the same mellow yellow fabric.
One more thing before I go, I was pretty excited about this!
The lovely Caitlin from Coletterie and Colette Patterns contacted me and asked if I would like to be a featured seamstress of the week! Jumping for joy, I gave her a very enthusiastic YES!
