So when I recently went to visit my long time friend Karen for a sew day, I was a little stumped. What should I sew? I went stash diving and unearthed a couple of yards of fabric for a blouse. I'd bought the fabric three years ago while shopping with Karen at her LQS during another summer visit. Therefore it seemed appropriate to make it up while with her again!
The colors don't show well on the screen but it's a beautiful combination of aqua, teal, navy and purple. The subtle touch of metallic gold makes the whole thing shimmer.Karen's been working her way through a lot of UFO's lately. We were sewing in the front room and went into her sewing room for something and she said, "This box has the most recent finished tops in it. You've probably seen most of these..." and proceeded to pull out top after top that I *hadn't* seen, six or seven total. It was then that she realized it'd been too long since our last visit.
The day went too fast and I had to pack up and head home. But we promised each other... like was always do... not to wait so long between visits.
