Back to reality

saw this morning running around doing errands and the grocery shopping.

Any goodies for me?

Top: Simplicity 2603 top with long sleeves in brown merino (blogged here)
Skirt: BWOF 04-2009-101 in salt and pepper cord (blogged here) 
Accessory: Purchased gold band choker with cream disc and purchased earrings and Roscoe checking out the contents of each bag as it is taken out of the car, searching for treats.
Tights:  Brown tights.
Boots: Betts 2 Buckles.

In the afternoon I changed the skirt for a pair of old Levis and boots for sneakers for the remainder of the day.

  1. I'm with you, sewing is so much more attractive an activity than grocery shopping…Good luck with your cargo pants, which pattern are you using? Oh, and such a great picture of your dog!


  2. I just love reading your blog! Since I started following you at the beginning of the year, my own sewing output has greatly increased. One of the fabric chain stores here in Canada is having a \”Buy 1 metre, Get 2 metres\” Sale this weekend. I bought some rayon knit to make a couple of wrap dresses and a piece of pink fabric to make a top to wear under a pink & navy spring-weight tweed jacket that I had made in China last year. I have some navy blue pants that I made from a pattern I drafted myself to complete the outfit. I hope to get the top done before the middle of July. Given that I am going to be in China again for work from June 23 – July 8, that is a fairly tight deadline.Thank you for the inspiration. You are my muse!
