An update

Just before I came down with the nasty cold I'm fighting off right now, I finished Simplicity 2472; the temperatures also dropped and I couldn't even think about wearing this dress. I wanted a really simple pattern for the knit print since I didn't want to worry about matching circles and I didn't want chop the print too much either. It can't get any simpler than this pattern! I know it doesn't have hanger appeal but it does look cute on. I'll take pictures of me wearing it later, when I feel better...

I also decided on McCalls 5752 for this knit print that I found at Joann's about a year ago. I think it will look good with this design.

In looking through my stash I found this beautiful twill from Michael's fabrics. I usually don't buy this color, but it came in a bundle and the quality is wonderful. I really need a neutral spring jacket so now I'm searching for a pattern.

I'm really looking forward to next week, the kids are off and I don't work thanks to working for the school system. I hope I can shake off this cold soon because I have plans!!

Look what showed up in our backyard a couple of days ago! This is the first time we see a pheasant visiting, the colors were just beautiful!

I wish to those who celebrate a good holiday!


  1. Gorgeous knits you picked. I can't wait to see the dresses in all their glory.

    The prints are perfect for these very pretty styles.

  3. Hola Lisette,
    Deseo que ya estes mejor. Has estado muy creativa.
    El abrigo es una perfección, no solamente debes de estar contenta como te quedo, si no muy orgullosa, porque esta bello y muy bien hecho. Me gusto mucho el detalle de que tienes tu propio label y te queda muy bien.
    Dile a tu mama que su crochet cardigan esta muy bonito, I am a lace girl =) si fuera por mi yo le pusiera encaje a toda la Canastilla =)
    Gracias por tu felicitación, estamos muy contentos.
    Saludos y Cariños.


I love hearing from you!
