Summer Blues

The scallop shorts that I've seen floating around this summer are adorable! After seeing a photo of Leighton Meester in a pair, I immediately searched my vintage shorts patterns and made some.  Adding the scallops was a bit tricky, but I think they turned out quite swell for a first attempt.  I can't wait to make another pair, maybe with bigger scallops or in a funky pattern.

Gotta Have My Pops

Happy Father's Day and Happy Birthday (tomorrow) to my dear, darling father. You are everything I could have ever wanted in a dad and then some.  You taught me to always be myself, and while I can not be more excited to finally move out of the house, I'm going to miss your songs and laughter. 

You are truly one of a kind, and I love you for that.

Life at its Best

  • April consisted of my big 21st Birthday, though sadly I was too ill to enjoy it.  And I was cast in the community theater's "Broadway At Its Best" 
  • May revolved around finishing up my last semester of community college, getting everything ready to attend UNCG in the fall, and rehearsals.
  • June is still going on, but the beginning consisted of the show going up.  I have also been splitting my time between relaxing on the beach and sewing up a storm in the craft room.
