Relatives are starting to arrive for July Fourth–dad picked up my Grandma yesterday and she's playing Sorry with the kids right now. I love my grandma, and there's no one like her for getting totally absorbed in a game with them. Yesterday she and Little Buddy had an epic game of War going, cracking us all up as they exclaimed over every stroke of luck.
Orange is her favorite color, so I punched up the green check with some polka-dot bias tape. It's hard to see in the pic, but there are stitched-down pleats at the neck. She doesn't like anything tight, so the sleeves have just the merest hint of elastic. I cut out the matching shorts, but then I got distracted…
In the sewing vein, I'm getting intrigued by Japanese fabrics, inspired by this book:
My mom found it at our local BN store–she has a nose for style.
I was browsing Reprodepot, my fave online fabric shop, and have a hopeless crush on this fabric:
What would I do with it? I have no idea! But– purple and cars. I just love it. Like I said , a hopeless crush..though why do I have a vision of a ruffled pillow….Hmmm.
Well, gotta get the kids to swim lessons, they're already in the car….
Thanks to Bezzie for pointing out that I forgot to link to Reprodepot!
