Lily and Eva were well behaved but then they kind of lost it while I was waiting to pay. Lily was laying down in the booth and sticking her feet up the sides of the upholstery. Then I swear Eva did this world federation body slam on Lil and then the couple next to our booth stopped eating and stared at us. I am proud to say that they have some Nep in them after all. You could never take Erik and I out to dinner or anywhere for that matter when we were that age. We were a mess.
For those that care *and I know you secretly do* my quilting on my skirt and jacket are slowly but steadily getting finished. Just the sleeve of the jacket took the entire weekend. Just quilting that is.
Special thank you to Christine Jonson for sending some free knit fabrics my way. Christine is on the cover of last months Threads magazine. She designs her own patterns for garments. She mainly focuses on knit fabrics which she sells on her online boutique. She is truly a creative genius. Her patterns are very straight forward. It took many trial and error but I have my favorite patterns from her website like for simple tops, skirts which I just repeat over and over with different knits.
The most amazing part of sewing a Jonson pattern is that the end result is something you can keep in your closet forever. The most well sewn quality garment you will every have. I love mixing and matching my pieces. I like her patterns too because I can sew a top in about 3 hours. SHAM WOW. I know.
