Sewing Update! (warning for my non-sewing friends)
The last couple of weeks I have been working on three little Oliver + S patterns. One is on display at The Quilting Squares and the other two are for Kay's granddaughter, Abby. They'll be used as samples when she outgrows them! These are all size 12-18 months. I was impressed with these patterns - the instructions were very well written. That's not always the case with independent pattern companies.
Two cotton shirtings!
This one is a knit!
Now its time to sew for me! Textile Fabrics here in Nashville had their semi-annual 50% off sale last week. I went and got two fabrics for shirts and one for a dress. I've also been knitting! My scarf is coming along and should be done soon.
From the Farmers' Market
In cooking news, this week I fixed my favorite chicken curry. I love this recipe and it means I've got five more meals in the freezer. Soon I should have a decent variety. Great success at the Farmers' Market this week. I roasted some of my purchases - so good with some fresh parmesan grated on top.
Beginning my new life as a "sixty and single" woman started with a "Grand Adventure" of a five month road trip. Included in my travels were a stop in the Grand Canyon, two months in Berkeley, CA, and a ferry ride to Juneau, AK. After my two month Alaskan adventure, I returned on the ferry and visited several more national parks before relocating to Franklin, TN. (its great to have children in fun places) I spent the summer of 2012 working in Yellowstone National Park at Fishing Bridge General Store. Wanderlust has struck!!! I have purchased a Casita 17' Spirit Deluxe travel trailer . . . the adventure continues.
