A few nice things

Hey, how's your day going? Good I hope. Here's what my life looks like at the moment...


 A basket of kittehs.
 A drawing of leaves

 The Curvy Closet Sewing Club is back up and running. I finally had some time yesterday to do some sewing. Here's Vogue V1197, a cowl neck tunic. It was pretty simple to put together. The pattern had long shirred raglan sleeves but they were too fiddly for me so I cut them off at the elbow.  I also cut a kimono jacket out last night out of scrapes of fabric. 




 "Old Lonesome" out by the pond. 


The fish seem happy enough. 


Hugs and kisses to you!

Marilyn.

  1. That was a great diversion from my obnoxious day, especially the kitties. Cute. How's my day? My day, so far, has been filled with learning more about the Common Core Curriculum planned for America's public schools. The more I learn the less I like it.
    Thanks for the change of pace.... love the outfit too!

    Now, I think I will go and paint!
