Scenes from a Tuesday

It's Tuesday already and it's only Tuesday, know what I mean? I hope you enjoyed your weekend, and if you're reading this in the States, your long weekend (for most of us anyways). Living in DC, Memorial Day weekend means a lot of bikers. I wonder if bikers look forward to this weekend every year - riding along side a half million other bikers all at once. I imagine they must. I attended one bbq on Monday and did finish my dress in time. But wouldn't you know, I didn't get any pictures. The dress is Simplicity 3503. I'll write up a full review when I get a picture, but for now let's say I felt very tres chic and plan to make another dress from this pattern.

After the bbq I began preparations for my friend's baby shower this weekend. I decided to make some fabric bunting in hopes that my friend will be able to use the flags later in the nursery (the nursery colors are green and yellow) or for birthdays or other baby events. What a fun project it was to make! Tonight I plan to cut out my fabric for Simplicity 2584 and hope that I'll be able to finish it in time to wear to the shower on Saturday.

One last note before I go, be sure to stop by tomorrow as I'll be participating in Sew Mama Sew's big May giveaway with something fun for you to win.


  1. My dress is coming along...slowly! Gee, when I get excited about a project is always the same time my machine gets all spazzy!

  2. So cute! I love the bunting!

  3. Can't wait to see the dress!

  4. I forgot to mention how much I love the picture of Bo with the bunting. I know he is about to pounce on it. :)

  5. So cute! I may try to do this to decorate for my sister's baby shower.

  6. oh, i love that bunting. i have been wanting to make some of that forever!
    oh, and the book is so good! I love it.
