Next is a blouse pattern by Burda I printed off the net and put together, a real pain. I made a black small yellow rose bud blouse first for fit and then this one. It's fits well maybe a bit on the large size and I had to make the neckline higher. The fabric is a heavy cotton. Vintage pearl buttons.
This is a Gertie pattern from her book. You have to trace them out and pieces overlap making it quite a task in concentration. So far it's gone together fast. I have here two fronts just pinned on the model. Now I'll work on the back. My one student Emily is leaving for Spain the end of the month. I let another one go for not calling me if she had to miss a lesson so I'm down to my star student Autumn. She is taking a bit of a summer break but does show up to sew with me at times. Soon she'll be back weekly as she figures out her school schedule.
Family was here in July. From L to R that is my daughter, daughter-in-law, my son and me.
In addition to my Zumba Gold classes I've taken to walking with a friend once a week. Here we walked on the Homer docks.
We also walk on the beach when the tide is out in the afternoon. We have huge tide variations here in Kachemak Bay.
We took the boys out today to this stretch of beach.
