I’ve been taking a little blog break the last few weeks –


Spending a little more time outside –


With this guy


and this guy



I made one more top – again something to wear with leggings.  After spending the 3 of the last 4 years in maternity pants, it’s hard to go back to something with a waist band!





It started as an ordinary button up the front shirt pattern – but I didn’t want to do button holes. Haha!  I love the fabric – Robert Kaufman Stretch Chambray.  Nice and lightweight and so much easier to work with than a knit – but it’s comfortable and stretchy so it feels more like a knit.  I got mine here.  I totally recommend it and wish it came in more colors.


And one last photo of summer – before it’s over.

    Summer is not over until I say it is over! I don’t want it to ever end. Pretty flowers and cute kids!

    What pattern did you use? You did a great job on the top, very flattering. Sincerely, Paula K.

    My son asked me what I was doing on the computer because I was smiling…..told him I was looking at pictures of some happy little boys!

    I can’t believe how those beautiful boys have grown. I have not been reading blogs lately either, so glad you had a break *wink!! I lost my mother the first of August & have had a hard time getting a groove back on. I had to scroll back and see your other tops you made – I sewed a lot of clothes BQ (before quilting). Which pattern is this one? I’m not fond of buttonholes either.
