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.
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!
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!
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!
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!
