I just got back from Ottawa where I met Riley for the first time. Needless to say, it was love at first sight. Here she is at five months last Wednesday..
Her Nana sure hated to leave her behind! Please don't take offence at the "Yankees Suck" T-shirt. It was a joke from my son to my husband who is a die hard Yankees fan.
While in Ottawa, I didn't get to visit C&M Textiles like I had planned but I did get to Fabricland where there was a $5.99 sale on Vogue patterns. I picked up this lovely to make for my son's wedding in August.
I intend to use a raspberry silk dupionni for it. I'm also hoping to make a little jacket of some sort so my arms will be covered for photos.
Here are the other patterns I picked up.
I want to make a sleeveless dress out of this one. Has anyone else made this?Are there any glitches?
This will be for the fall probably but I don't know which fabric from my stash I'll use.
As for this Marci Tilton, I thought it would be a nice basic pattern to have on hand.
I had hoped,while I was in Ottawa, to get some photos of Tamara wearing some of the pieces I made her this winter, but the baby got in the way of that.
Now I have to catch up on my favorite blogs. I hope you've had time to sew this week.
