Two reasons: It’s a special time of the year for plants in TN. Here’s one of my favorites: TN State Tree, the Tulip Tree in bloom:
There are more gorgeous TN countryside photos in the Tennessee Beauty set on Flickr from last night’s attempt to understand my easy-shoot camera’s newest failings. The photos, while not the sharpest are still beautiful. http://www.flickr.com/photos/77314006@N00/sets/72157633786227858/
I even found some of my Evening Primrose, Pink Ladies, as they are called around here, growing along the side of the road, Escape Artists from someone’s garden. TN has a number of Onenothera that are considered native
and two: I am not sewing at the moment because I have enough Springtime clothes for my lifestyle already. Most of what I wear is made by me and apparently I’ve been busy for the last number of years.
I also had lost a lot of weight in the past few years and now have gained it all back so I have clothes that fit whatever size I am currently needing. Thank goodness, though, that I have regained the weight. I can finally eat almost everything that I like and I have absolutely NO BUTT when I lose weight. My dear friend Lorna Newman said when she saw a pix of my baggy behind: Wow! I don’t think there’s an alteration that can fix THAT. And another friend suggested the Frederick’s of Hollywood catalog type of padded fanny panties. Hehehehehehe. Well, now I don’t have that kind of worry. At the moment, anyway.
But the temperatures are going into the high 80’s today and it’s time to look at cool cotton and linen and easy-care styles. I need to make gowns for lounging in the evenings and sensible, loose dresses for the daytime. Think Muu Muu without the Moo. I don’t want to look early 60’s Florida retiree.
This has been my favorite go-to (reviewed on The Sewing Divas blog) the last few days:
It was made in 2009. Time for some new linen, I’d say.
Patterns? Now that’s the hard part. I just don’t know what patterns I’ll use.
Well, the air conditioning just kicked on and it’s set for 76. I’d better hit the sewing room.
