Skirting Along

The picnic blanket skirt is in full swing, I found these yellow buttons at Jo-Ann that will go so well with the grayish/blue seersucker. I have all my sides sewed up, I even did some delicate pinking of the seams, the plackets are done, and the pockets installed, these are my first sets of pockets, who knew creating pockets could be this cool.

Now that I have come this far I have stalled in the down swing of completing the skirt. I still need to gather, add the waistband, and hem the skirt, plus create the buttonholes and add the buttons.

To get me going again I entered the Pattern Review Handbag Challenge, bags are really fun and that will make me sew happy, and I really do want to wear this skirt at least once this summer, aha moment, OMG summer will be ending soon. I believe I have made a break though this skirt will be finished sooner than you know.

Travel Adventure 2019

Had a dream come thru in March 2019, with my Trip to Italy. First stop on the tour Venice, there was many sites to see.  Murano Glass, Doge's Palace, Museo Correr and nice walk thru of St. Mark's Basilica.
