Claudia Croneberger- Wool & 100 Day Dress Challenge

24OCT2021

Day 1

I was excited to wear my dress for the first time!  I paired it with leggings and a wool scarf I bought at a thrift store on a visit to Germany several years ago (it's one of my favorites).  I headed out for a long walk with my dog.  It was such a beautiful day, so we headed to the nearby lake.  The lake has a long name!  Hochwasserrucknaltebecken Sulzbach!  It is very beautiful- especially at this time of year.  I love the feel of this dress, and I was neither too hot or too cold.  The temperture outside today is about 2 degrees celcius.  I also had a jacket on, but I took it off for this photo.  I used a timer on my camera to shoot this photo.

Day 2

Getting dressed today was so easy because I knew I was going to wear my Rowena Swing Dress.  I threw on some purple tights, a purple scarf, and purple sweater.  I walked my dog then spent the day out and about running errands- Vet Appt, food shopping, got my flu shot, went to the post office- this dress goes everywhere!  I really love the pockets too!

Day 3

Today started out cloudy and cold with a threat of rain.  That does not stop us from going for our morning walk!    Getting dressed today was so easy.  I just took a shower then threw on my Rowena dress with some leggings, socks, hiking boots, and a raincoat!  I thought maybe I would be chilly with just the light raincoat on, but my morino wool dress from Wool & kept me at the perfect temperature as promised!  Today was housework day, so after our walk I just threw on an apron, some "house shoes", and have been cleaning away!  I love this dress!  Tonight I have orchestra practice, so I will ditch the apron and maybe don some fancier shoes, but I don't have to think at all about what I am going to wear tonight!

Day 6

29OCT2021

Exploring a new place!

I arrived at Kloster Heiligkreuztal

for the Black Forest Quilters Retreat.

I usually over pack when I take trips because I never know what I might want to wear.  Packing for this trip was so easy because I knew I would be wearing my Rowena dres every day!

 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Day 7

30OCT2021

In between sewing at the retreat I took a little walk around to explore.

Day 8

31OCT2021

I stayed up very late last night sewing.  My pattern for this quilt instructed me to make 31 whole squares, 8 right half squares, 8 left half squares, and 4 corners.  I thought I would lay it all out this morning, but it was not working.  I have extra pieces?  No, the pattern had a mis print.  I needed 41 whole squares.  Back to the maching to make 10 more squares.  I don't mind, because it is so fun, and I love the colors!

Day 9

1NOV2021

Back home from the retreat.  I washed my dress last night and hung it up to dry.

Today I have errands to run, so I am ready to go with my freshly washed Rowena dress.

This is me in my little back yard oasis.

 

Day 10

2NOV2021

It was cold today.  I put on sweat pants under my dress to walk my dog.

Day 11

3NOV2021

My sister sent me some red leggings!  They go great with my black Rowena dress from Wool&!  My dog is thinking, "Quit posing and lets go for a walk!"

Day 12

4NOV2021

 

This dress is very comfortable for lounging around too! 

Today was cold and rainy.

It was a perfect day to relax with a good book.

I love Sutton Foster, and I love crafting, so I am really enjoying this book!

Today is also the birthday of my wonderful husband!  I made him dinner and a cake, but I forgot to wear an apron and got cake batter on my dress (too much to spot clean) so I will wash it tonight.  I just wash it in the sink with a little baby shampoo, rinse it, roll it up in a towel to get the excess water out, and hang it up to dry.  So easy!
