I have a few things to share with you folks today. First off, thank you again for all your lovely comments on my floral sheath dress. It was so fun to wear yesterday despite the wintry weather. I was surprised that some of you liked the floral print more than the colorblock dress. I was worried that the floral print might look a little grandma-y, but you have all assured me it was cute. Live and learn!
Next up are some live action photos of my nephew Thor wearing the madras shorts I made him for his birthday recently. Isn’t he handsome? And those shorts look so cute on him! My sister has been studying photography and her photos are so amazing. I guess we’re just one big artsy-fartsy family!
Lena of The Sewing Space kindly nominated me for the Kreativ Blogger award! How sweet is that? I read so many blogs (over 200 on my reader) that it would be hard for me to pick and choose only 7 to pass this award on. I have really enjoyed writing about sewing the past few years. It’s been so fun sharing my learning experiences, my wins/fails, and my joy in sewing with you all. I am grateful that you come here and check up on my projects. Thank you!
In Elizabeth does not need another hobby news: I received my order of paints, brushes and watercolor paper yesterday. I am so excited and intimidated at the same time. Have you been following Kathy’s learn how to paint series at Spottedroo?
And just because I want to, here’s a bonus picture of Jack. He usually doesn’t want me to take his picture or is a moving target, but this past weekend he asked me to take his picture as we were scootering home from a playdate. He smiled and screamed cheese as I took it.
Next up on the sewing docket: I really want to make another colorblock dress, one for which you won’t need sunglasses. I’m thinking white linen bodice and navy linen bottom. Kind of like the one on the far right top of the picture mosaic below, except with the white bodice extending longer to waist height.
Maybe I’ll go crazy and include skinny belt loops for patent leather skinny belt. I am loving all these dresses. I am a dress girl at heart as I’ve said before. Dresses and me? We go way back. I could see B5147 becoming my work uniform. There’s no matching involved (unless you consider a cardigan to necessitate matching). It’s an outfit all on its own. I am a very minimal accessorizer (I love making up words!), mostly because I’m not good at it or that just the thought of accessorizing makes me feel tired. I don’t own a ton of jewelry or accessories. I like the clothes to do all the talking.
Do you have a work uniform?
