So there I was, hanging out on Facebook, when I saw this call for participants in an intriguing-sounding blog tour. The fabulous Katy McKinley of Wild & Wanderful and Angelica Ross of Gardening in High Heels came up with the idea to have a series of posts written by sewists and fashion bloggers dedicated to suggestions of outfits to wear to a variety of events and in a variety of situations. Naturally, I *had* to sign up for the tour – even if it meant I’d be modeling clothes a day before I hit 35 weeks pregnant. Continue reading
I have no words for what happened in Paris tonight, just an unbelieveable sadness for the French people, all people, and for the families and friends of those who were lost.
Love, prayers, and peace to all tonight.

Anyone who has been paying attention to this blog for a little while knows that I have a “slight” Badgley Mischka obsession. I still want to make the James Bond type dress from last year’s Vogue winter and holiday release. I’m in love with that black and white dress with the cascade, the only thing that’s stopped me thus far is a baby bump. 🙂 You’ll also recall the fun I had last year on my birthday when my husband took me out for a lovely dinner and I dressed up in a LOVELY IGIGI dress and earrings by Slate and Willow.

There are only 7 1/2 weeks until my due date. That means I have a lot to do. I’m hoping to share some information about Kansas wineries that I’ve learned while researching. Yes, there are wineries in Kansas! I’m looking forward to learning more about them when I can enjoy wine again. In the meantime, I’ve been sewing a lot. In fact, I have another big announcement you should stay tuned for at the end of this post. Meanwhile, I’m here to talk about my newest addiction: Sewing the Easy A-Line Skirt by Dandelions n’ Dungarees. This is a really simple pattern – and it’s a great girls’ sewing pattern for beginners. I made THREE of these, and I have plans to make two more for my girl – one with a teal corduroy and one with a purple with white polka dots cotton. These are going to be great with tights underneath as we roll into fall. Continue reading
