A 60's style pattern

This post is for Shannon (simonfreep) who was looking for a pattern to copy a very cute RTW dress. I found this pattern forgotten in a Joann's pattern drawer. It is one of my favorite styles and the pattern was in my size range, how perfect is that?

Mother's Day

Yesterday I went on our traditional visit to a garden. On top is one of the pictures we took at Ladew Gardens, 20 minutes or so from where I live. The second picture is my mom with me on the right and my brother on the stoop of my grandmother's house in Havana, Cuba. My mom has always been my best friend. She is always in awe of what I can accomplish, and I am in awe of what she went through and how she made the best of what life threw at her.
I hope we can enjoy Mother's Day together for many years to come.

New Patterns

Of course the last thing I need is more patterns but I couldn't resist these two from Vogue on sale at Joann's. The jacket I have been wanting since it first came out the dress I just "discovered" today while browsing the newest book.
Now I just have to finish the baby quilt and I can get back to sewing garments.
My knitting and crocheting has been disappointing lately so I need to recover my confidence by sewing something fab...
