PEEPS!


A little beyond the cute, fuzzy baby chicks  which they were 2 weeks ago; but I love the teenage phase they are going through right now..."surfer dudes", we call them...this one enjoyed his first time outside in the sunshine today!

DD and DSIL are up for the holiday weekend...I thought Maggie might step in to take photos (she is a fabulous photographer, among her many talents) but she had a run-in with a mandoline this afternoon, and she lost...:(

Here we are during the photoshoot



I am showing my most recent sewing project, a pair of my Lynda Maynard pants 
in a wonderful cotton/linen blend from my new source, Smuggler's Daughter;
it's off-white with a fabulous "ink spatter" pattern from Milly.








We are feasting on grilled, butterflied leg of lamb (scallops for pescaterian DD),
roasted red potatoes, asparagus, and wine (and CHAMPAGNE!)

An endless sink full of dishes to be done...



I'm checking in over at Not Dead Yet Style where Patti is once again hosting
Visible Monday...

I hope your holiday or Sunday has been wonderful!

TTYL...

  10. That photo of you and the teenybopper is the funniest thing I've seen in a while! It looks like it's been dropped down on another planet and is say, "Yikes, where the h___ am I?"

    Great pants, those are from the pattern you worked so hard on, aren't they? It shows. I think I'd like to work with Lynda Maynard like you did. It sure paid off.

    You look terrific as always, Margy. Happy Spring!

  12. Love your Japanese style apron! They made us make one of these as the first sewing project in my middle school home-ec class. I still have the one "I" made. (well, my mom helped me quite a bit.....)

  14. Ink splatter pants, is there anything more cool? I love these. The whole thing WORKS, and your eyewear with this outfit is perfect. I agree, the apron is very stylish as well. I saw a TV ad for either a product or a lifestyle - I'm not sure which - and at the end of the meal the hostess takes the four corners of the tablecloth, bunches EVERYTHING on the table into a huge mess in the middle and dumps it in the trash. Um... Maybe not. Laugh! What a luxurious day, good food and company. Surfer dude? Laugh again.

  15. Your pants are great-looking, Margy. You've made a real find in Smuggler's Daughter, it appears. Combine that with a perfectly-altered pants pattern and magic happens. : )

  16. You look great in black and white. Perfection with your hair and your fabulous glasses.

  17. Those are classic "smarty-pants" on you. You're smart and they're elegant with a big measure of cool. Thanks for the sewing inspiration ... I've been making some drop- waisted midi skirts that I couldn't find here, and I appreciate your muse-ness!
