Vacation Break

We are off to visit France for 3 weeks so I'll be on hiatis from sewing...but will be back in October!

I'm looking forward to visiting with old friends in Paris--the family I lived with when doing a language school in Annecy one summer. Wonderful people and I'm anxious to reconnect and share our family stories from the years in between.

We will travel from Paris through the Loire Valley to central France to see the Lascaux Caves, Carcasonne, Provence villages and end up in Nice. Along the way we will celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary.

Happy sewing--see you soon!

Burda Jacket BWOF 03/2006 Style 101

I have been doing some sewing this week--made some logos for DGS's Halloween costume and got them in the mail without photos. Maybe I'll see how they work on the finished costume and get a photo later!

I made myself the Burda jacket, thinking I might take it on our trip next week. I think it is too heavy! It is made of an ottoman knit and lined with some stretch satin I bought from Kathy's coop--a Victoria's Secret overrun. Both fabrics have quite a bit of body and the jacket will be warm!
Here are the photos, taken in our yard here in Las Vegas:
