Summer!

Posted in Finished Objects, Sewing at 5:48 pm by merknits

I am having a hard time believing that it is already July 15!  The summer has flown by, without much crafting on my part.  I guess it’s good that I’ve been busy – Chicago has lots of fun festivals and concerts, plus we’ve been going on some fun weekend trips.  Which included a lovely long weekend in Playa del Carmen, Mexico!

I was able to make a quick beach cover up before we left:

I used the Summer Nightie pattern from One Yard Wonders.  I had more fabric so I lengthened it and added a ruffle at the bottom.  Perfect for the beach!

Unfortunately we’re moving in a few weeks so I still won’t have much time to sew or knit.  Perhaps once the weather cools down I’ll have the urge again – I have to say that working in a building built in the 1880’s can be very cool, though unfortunately not literally.  No central air (and broken window units) really sucks.

    Your photos are gorgeous. I’ve never been to Mexico but I bet the water is so warm, clear, and blue! Your sundress came out so well!

    Are you moving within the area, or further? I hope it goes smoothly.

    Glad you were able to get away for a while & the swim suit coverup looks great!

    I do hope that your move went well!
