Oh, well, HI THERE!
I finished the embellishment of my Alabama Chanin A-line Dress on Friday night! I'd already seamed up the back a while ago, and couldn't resist Wonder Clipping the other three seams so I could try it on (shown above and below, inside-out).
Pleased as punch.
In case it's hard to tell, I am very happy!! I can't wait to wear this dress!!
As of last night, all the seams are sewn and felled; edges await finishing (neckline, armholes, hem).
It was a regular market morning on Saturday, with the addition of an early morning helper!
Intrigued by Walter – the spaniel that lives across the street.
I watched Junah later on Saturday, too, while Ali helped Rusty set up his booth for the 55th Art at the Park in Appleton. Kate helped him tear down last night. Both girls made nostalgic posts on Facebook, recalling the innumerable art fairs to which they've accompanied him over the years. It was always a pretty big thrill — various Chicago-land shows, that long show in Ann Arbor, etc.
Rusty had a follow-up appointment with his regular doc this morning. He's generally feeling better, though plagued by one or two areas that have been feeling worse; he checked out OK, with a prescription refill, and just needs to be patient while all those strained muscles and ligaments heal!
