Summertime...and the livin' is easy?

Greetings from Vermont!

Summertime brings me to a new place...sadly, a place without a sewing machine and with only a very small very slow computer. But, I am going to try to keep crafting nonetheless.

I hope you will excuse the photography (it's poor even by my standards) and the backdrop of my dismal dorm room...but I wanted to share this because I am so proud of myself!
This is actually the third dress I have made from the same pattern, but I think this one is my favorite. My grandma guided me  through the first one, and she has been helping me with the hemming (because how do you hem a dress you are wearing?)The best part is, the fabric for this one only cost me FOUR DOLLARS!!! How great is that? (Thanks to Carole Ann for showing me the best place to get fabric!!!)

I have also picked out some other patterns to try...but it will have to wait until I get home again in August! I rarely find dresses that I love or that fit me exactly right in stores, so I am happy to do some experimenting.

Happy summer to all!
