Same old, same old.
Lots and lots of work.
Made myself another Artists Box Top out of the Liberty lawn I bought in May. Cotton lawn is by far my favorite fabric in the world. So light but crisp and easy to sew and doesn’t wrinkle horribly. Perfect for summer. Also I’m rather proud of this one because I made my own facings instead of trying to use bias tape, which I’ve never been able to find a good tutorial for using it on a v-neck.
I also made George another button down shirt for Father’s Day. I couldn’t find any more Doctor Who fabric, but I found this one covered in cocktails at a local sewing store. (I had to make an appointment to shop. I felt v important.)
And I made myself this Holyoke sundress from Cashmerette. The top ended up a little big, and I’m not super comfortable with my arms out like this, but I’ll get over it when the temp is 100. This one is made out of a linen/rayon blend.
Bagels that looked funky but tasted good.
Dinner rolls that look and taste amazing.
Beignets from scratch!
The boys and I ate at a restaurant for the first time since March! We went to Tartine, which friends of our own. It was delightful and the food was delicious and nice to feel sorta normal.
Premier League games started up again, so now it’s even harder to get the boys to focus on summer reading.
And when they’re not watching soccer or avoiding reading, they’re playing Minecraft with their cousins, which warms my heart.
My cilantro is practically thriving.
And Ziggy is as ridiculously cute as ever. He got a new collar! And I got a lick to the face!
Until next time….
