I made a jacket from TNT M5433 (OOP) using a gorgeous brocade from Emma One Sock.
I snatched up this fabric as soon as I saw it...MY COLORS!
and paired it with some special buttons AND some of my beloved Indian jewelry
I also made the denim ankle pants (my custom Lynda Maynard pattern) in an
off-black denim from Marcy Tilton.
I had the distinct pleasure of hosting two darling 10-year-old twins (and their mother) who are both taking sewing lessons here in the valley. They had heard about my
"Star Blogger" turn in Vogue Pattern Magazine and wanted to visit my studio and see what I do and where I do it.! I set them loose and let them wander around, inspect some of the clothes I've made, check out my inspiration wall,
and ask me any questions they wanted. It was so much fun! Thrilling to see young girls interested in sewing. I hope it's a trend!
This is the very brief season when fresh figs are in the market...so I took advantage of it and made Chicken with Roasted Figs
Oh, so good....
and (be still my heart/stomach) Halloumi with Honey-Grilled Figs
and with that, I leave you for now!
