My Picnic Blanket Skirt

Yeah, I have completed my picnic blanket skirt, I was determine to complete the skirt on Labor Day, mission accomplished, I completed it late last night, and woke up early next day to take the photo outside before I dash off to work.

I learned so many new techniques making this skirt, gathering, buttonholes, attaching a waist band, and creating the placket, whew!! what a trip, but so well worth it.

I found the thought of making the buttonholes a tad bit intimidating, but until you make one you can never know the feeling when you know, you got this.

The seersucker material was a bit stretchy and light so I used some woven fusible interface on wrong side of the fabric to reinforce the back of the buttonhole, and that made creating the buttonhole much easier.

Plus my Singer 8220C came with the buttonhole capability, this feature made it so much easier for me, thank you Singer.

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

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.
