Fabrics, Patterns and (almost) Finishes...

"Just take a quick look at the clearance rack" I said to Liz as we were passing by the fabric on our way to the check out.
Four cuts of fabric later and I had to make myself stop....
A few days later, I found out that Joann's has McCall's patterns 5/$7.00 which makes them $1.40 each. 
There was a limit of ten but I stopped at five.  I had a total savings of $73.75.
So here is a little dress for my granddaughter using one of the fabrics and one of the new patterns.   I LOVE how this print worked up into such a cute little dress.  McCall's M5613.
 It's not quite finished.  Of all the buttons I have in my stash, I didn't have any that suited me. 
 You will see the I have the straps pinned differently.  The pattern suggest the straps being on the outside but I think I like them just the opposite.
This one I'm sharing just because.  I bought these fabrics a couple weeks ago and finally got this little pillowcase style dress done yesterday afternoon.  They are "sew" cute and go together so quickly.  And who doesn't like chevron and dots?!
  I may add a little somethin', somethin' to the bottom.

I think I got all my little daily chores done this morning so I think I'll spend some more time at the sewing machine......however you are spending your day.....ENJOY!

Yesterday's Morning Coffee.....

Some mornings I like to spend my coffee time's usually the most quiet and cool part of the day.
Just to sit and enjoy the view......

......or walk around the yard and enjoy the little of what I have left in my flower boxes, as I'm gradually getting them cleared out for total redo. I love these plants but as they are right now, it's just a little too much on the upkeep so it's time for a new plan!
Lamb's ear.
A volunteer sunflower....from a seed dropped from bird feed.
And this is the extent of our gardening this year.....a couple of cherry tomato  plants...
...and seven regular tomato plants.
If this many plants produce like they should, I don't know who's going to eat them all!
Time to get busy.....
Enjoy your day!
