I can’t believe I haven’t posted in over 2 weeks. I am ashamed. There’s been a lot of work going on and not a lot of knitting or anything like that. Can you believe I haven’t even finished Cherry? Only a button band and seaming is left and I can’t get my act together enough to do it. By the time I do, it will surely be Fall. Good thing that still means warm enough weather for it.
So I promised the second skirt photo ages ago and here’s the best I could muster. It’s the Cute Skirts pattern from Favorite Things, and has an elasticized band so it’s pretty easy and comfy to grab on a hot day.

Then, I made a dress! It’s a lined wrap front top with a full skirt and sash, from New Look. I finished it yesterday, in time for today, which just happens to my birthday and I just happen to be going out with friends for some Hawaiian fare and fruity drinks. Here’s a bad headless photo.

Lastly, today is 4 years with the best dog in the entire world. And Ty’s honorary birthday too, since he won’t tell me when it really IS.

Promise I’ll post again before 2 weeks is up.
