Perhaps if we don't talk about it and thereby jinx something, the lovely - warm - open the windows - weather will be here to stay. No coat was needed when I took Miss Chloe for her morning constitution yesterday. YES YES! I am beyond tired of bundling up.
Howard came with us and took these pictures of my Vogue 9089 top with the Burda 7062 pants. With sunlight. From the front. Shadows behind me. You can see the details much better now. I think the length is about perfect. At breakfast, I asked my son's girlfriend if I looked like I was wearing a maternity top and she said definitely not and she loved the pants. This is good.
Lately, I've been picking a lot of garments with single layer cutting plans. The last one had fifteen pieces. This one is a mix. The collar, front, sleeves, and button band are cut double layer and the left, right, and center backs are cut single layer. The middle back is where I've placed the pin. I used running stitches in pearl cotton to accentuate the design lines. They are enough to add interest without glaring. In the back...
... I made three little Xs with the left one above center back and on the collar points I attempted some seed stitch - something I've never done before and - LOL - I need some practice.
Miss Chloe wanted her picture taken as well. She said it may not look like it but really she's blowing you a kiss Steph and thanks for all the hugs. She was her usual cuddly self yesterday although - VBG - she thankfully did not buy me a card for Mother's Day, I actually saw one at the store from the dog. Really! Whenever someone calls me her Mom, I say that would make me a b-witch and I may be but...
Talk soon - Myrna
Grateful - a wonderful Mother's Day
