  • Spent a week here with the kids
  • Who needless to say are good sports
  • Really, really good sports
  • Just ask them
  • Interesting trip
  • First leg with my mom being the kid
  • Next leg with my kid being the mom
  • Things change but that also brings in such nice surprises
  • Got to know my daughter-in-law a little better
  • Let me tell you this family sure scored with that one
  • So kind, thoughtful, and interesting
  • They are a unit, a good unit
  • It doesn't get any better than that
  • For your kid or for his mother
  • What did I do here?
  • Went to Britex which was nice but very overpriced
  • Strong sense that my NYC garment district negotiating skills would not get me far
  • Feel shrugging and walking away would just lead to 
  • Well them watching me walk away
  • As opposed to saying
  • I can give it to you for ... probably more than the marked price actually
  • Had lovely folks in a another store show me the inside of designer clothes
  • Pics to come
  • Walked and walked and walked
  • Up hills more than down hills
  • Not sure how they do that
  • This city is so beautiful you can't compare it to anything else
  • Reminded me more of Europe than anywhere else
  • Need to get the travel wardrobe down much better
  • Continuing my policy of packing mostly shoes and clothes for some other climate
  • Middle son is moving to Austin Texas
  • This family, honestly
  • They know there is no point
  • I will just come and visit
  • Got the spouse seeing what the state parks are like in Texas
  • What I am learning about packing
  • You don't need to pack three hats
  • You do need to a pack one sweater
  • Just because the label says California this town isn't
  • People smile here
  • I am sure I recognize that smell in the air
  • The bus driver is driving a bus until he can sell his software idea
  • I am considering calling my fabric collection
  • A non profit based start up investment concept
  • Going to sell my husband on the concept of being a VC
  • Have to explain that means venture capitalist not very confused
  • Which he often is when I explain I am spending money to save money
  • Or I might if I could get the start up part of this operation launched
  • Before the first quarter
  • Or new pattern releases whatever comes first
  • Borrowed a dog to walk from son's co-worker
  • Walked across the Golden Gate bridge which is orange
  • That part without the dog
  • Went to the first winery started by a migrant worker
  • Gave dating advice to son's co-worker
  • A topic I really know a lot about
  • He's doing tons of first dates from some app
  • I have three sisters so I know what women want I said
  • Did not mention that all sisters, plus myself, have seen menopause come and go
  • Good advice is still good advice
  • I thought he was pretty impressed
  • Son cleared the table
  • Well at least I scored some dog walking didn't I?
  • Tomorrow back for another short stop with my mom
  • The kids can recover 
  • Then home
  • Did I mention I got a new Juki serger and cover hem?
  • More on that later
  • Got a real deal
  • Just ask my VC

Donut Dress

This fun little dress is (another) Safari Raglan, which is a pattern I am pretty obsessed with at the moment for sewing up quick little dresses and shirts for edison. If it looks familiar you’re pretty spot on, my first ever safari raglan was made up in the same main fabric, hehe. I just don’t really have many knits in my stash that are fun and not like… this ugly blue and this weird purple, and a lot of my sewing is spur of the moment with whatever I have in my stash.
