Retreat Projects

Aubry and I went on a sewing retreat recently and OH what fun we had!  I am ashamed to say I took 3 bags of fabric to work on. (oh my stash...)  BUT I came back with only 2!  I was very productive and here are my goodies from that weekend and a couple others.

This coat is a pattern from the book Sew Serendipity.  I'm VERY pleased with how it turned out.  I did tweak the collar to be this shape but it was easy to do.

This tee was an idea I found on Pinterest and I loved the idea.  I picked the word "unique" because as I was growing up, my mom encouraged me to be my own person, not try to be someone else.


This linen jacket is an OLD Vogue pattern from the 80's that I have hung on to all these years.  I finally just decided to make it.  I'm very pleased with it and I'm sure I will wear it to rags.

A simple linen shell.

Those are antler buttons I used. 

Back view. 
 See little Copper scratching over there?  She's one of our sweet chickens.

I found these handles at The Sewing Station in Brentwood where I bought my Bernina.  I can't wait to make more bags to go on these handles.

An apron....that I will never wear as an apron.  HA
I plan to wear it with leggings.

I have fallen in love with peasant tops.  Notice the pocket detail. 
 It took a little thinkin' to put this one together.
Aubry's pretties will be in another post.  I have to get all of her goodies together and shoot them. She made horse tack for her Breyer horses.  She also did some needle felting.  I'll get those on here soon.

Little Stinkers

Todd was out taking care of our chickens when along came a momma skunk and her 6 babies!  Notice the tails sticking up in the top photo.
