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.

Adventures First Half of 2017

Early March 2017

My love for travel, history and exploring started with books, my natural curiosity did the rest.

NYC tour





Empire state building.






The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum




When in NYC shopping is not far from my mind, so I visited LV and got myself a present.




Later in March my BFF and I dance to Uncle Charlie in concert.





Early July 2017

Off to the races I went on a tour of Belmont Park Race Track, the place is huge and makes me wonder what it is like when they have the Belmont Stakes. There were plenty of people having picnics at the park, others there for the races.
