Thank you for all your great name suggestions for my new dressform on Friday’s post! Now I just have to decide what to choose… So many appealing names!

I’ve been working on making and fitting a dress muslin this weekend–it’s one of the dresses I showed you in last week’s pattern inspiration post (though not the popular bow dress–that one is a bit too fancy for my closet right now!). I’m really excited, though of course there are bugs that need to be worked out! So it’s back to the sewing machine for me! Hope you are having a lovely, creative weekend too!

oh, my Grandparents have some of those face tea cups up at their cottage! I love them! I have to hold myself back from stealing them every time I’m there. Someday they will be mine! Muahaha….. I might have to wrestle my sister for them though!

Loving the picture of those loaves of bread. . . That’s one of the things I’ve decided to do more of this year, as I venture of back home and attempt to start homeschooling my oldest. Love the blog as always!

I never realized until just now that I absolutely must have winking tea cups.

Ooh looking forward to seeing which dress you’ve been working on – my bet is on the one with the inverted V-shaped midriff. My year’s sewing list has got me all fired up to create, and I’m just finishing up the year’s first sewing project.

PS thanks for featuring my guide to colour combos – glad you liked it!

All of those pictures are lovely, especially the second one of the cookies.

The post about the vintage dress was intriguing as well. I love examining older garments and trying to figure out how they were constructed. It’s usually always enlightening and fascinating.
