Happy diwali dinosaurs

Here are the dinosaurs I mentioned in yesterday's post. The photo didn't go thru then; hopefully it goes thru this time, because who knew that dinosaurs belonged at a Diwali celebration?!

Happy Diwali

A sighting, on the front steps of one of our neighbor's house.

Note the dinosaurs on the bottom step. I'll bet the little boy who lives there put them there. There were also candles, lit up at night.

Lily and friend

This is my son with his girlfriend's dog, Lily. Isn't she cute? I meant to also get a photo of his girlfriend,  Cia, but poof, they left before I could. Next time!

Endless summer

Since our summer weather isn't going away, I decided I might as well sew these lavender cropped pants. What took me so long? I am tired of my summer wardrobe, so at least this is one fresh thing.

Have you heard the term sewist? I've noticed lately that some of the bloggers who sew clothing are calling themselves this. It used to be seamstress, or tailor if you're a man. Sewer could be confused with sewers. :-) What do you think of the word sewist?

Quilter AND Sewist?

I've been posting all the little outfits I've made for my granddaughter for years. Recently I sewed a blouse for myself! It's the Caroline blouse from Sew Loft patterns. I liked the pattern, although I had to make major adjustments to make it fit me. I am only 5'1", and the pattern was meant for someone much taller. I bought all the fabrics at Purl Soho: Rowan chambray, mixed with Liberty prints.

Now if the weather would only cool down, I'd wear it somewhere!
