learning

Leah is learning how to read a sewing pattern. She hasn't sewn a garment from a pattern in the past two years, but she's on a mission to make a 19th century style dress.

Debbie is learning that, because linen does not stretch, errors with extra stitches are not easily fixed and blended because the extra yarn isn't absorbed by the remaining stitches, as it can be with stretchier yarns. Boo-boo made while knitting at dusk pre-fireworks on Saturday. Fix-it failed. Rows ripped back. This is worth doing right.

We all learned that farmers' market days that look like this just might bring out swarms of customers and friends, both of our kids' grandmas, and even Scott's sister, Vickie! And...whoosh...three hours go by in the blink of an eye and leave a happy baker with very few leftovers. Yay!

Oh, so pretty! What a lovely day. Bummer about the linen thing, but yeah, it will be worth it!

Seeing Leah learning to use a pattern was great!

Sorry about the ripping back, but I know you are not too affected by it.

What a great day it was!
