Nevertheless, it was a wonderful four-day weekend. Friday (rainy and cold) my sister in law and I went to Gail K Fabrics. She's going to two weddings in May and June and needed new dresses - of course! Here's the fabric we chose:
Fortunately for me she decided on a very simple A-line princess seamed dress, so once I get the fitting done, it
will should be very simple to make. I love both of these pieces. You will be hearing a lot about these two dresses in the next few weeks,I imagine. :-)
Although it was rainy Friday and Saturday, we then had two absolutely gorgeous days with perfect weather. Sunday and we had our monthly family brunch. Yesterday, same SIL (see above), my daughter and I went to Grower's Outlet in Loganville, Ga. (a long drive but worth it) and went crazy over plants - hostas, herbs, shrubs, ground cover. It's not a big place and they require two off duty Loganville policemen to direct traffic and help people park but it's worth the trip because of the excellent prices. I'm ready to get outside and dig. I have a flat of blue hostas, one of ground cover which I can't remember what they call but it's very pretty, a beautiful hosta called Patriot; Judy gave me an azalea bush that she never got around to planting and had nearly rooted which still in the container; some other things. Allison bought herbs and flowers. Judy - well, I don't have time to catalog everything she bought. :-)
So, I apologize for not being with the program the last four days. It's been a much needed break from work, and much needed family time. Hope this little recap of my weekend didn't bore you. There is *some* sewing content!
