Time To Remake a Favorite

The younger granddaughter has repeatedly requested that I make another denim jacket for her.  The first jacket was originally made for her older sister and was given to her when it became too small for the older sister.   I have several sewing projects before starting this jacket.  However, when I do finish the new jacket, it will be posted.

As originally published in February, 2009:

These photos are of a denim jacket that I made in January for a granddaughter.  The lining is flannel that I quilted and the faux chenille was created from portions of the same print of the horse images. 

I made a detachable hood (not shown) that is buttoned to the under collar.  It was a true labor of love.  And, of course, this will be handed down to the younger granddaughter....

The pattern is #2876:

It's Fall, Y'all

My husband and I enjoyed the weekend trip to the Blue Ridge Mountains with the company of  our two grown children and one of our two granddaughters. The location of this photo is Sliding Rock in the Pisgah Natural Forest area.  This has been a favorite of ours over many years.  Our younger granddaughter had never been to any mountains, and we decided to show her some of our favorite spots on this trip.  I am already planning on another trip for next autumn, if not for an additional week in the summer.  Being retired does have its benefits, such as having the luxury to plan such trips, or just “hit the road” just because we feel like it.  Autumn is really my favorite time of the year.  Mother Nature’s display of colors in the mountains is irresistible to me.
