Perfect Pool and Pattern


Photo credit: Anna Maria Horner

This afternoon is gorgeous. Perfect, even. Sunshine and fluffy clouds and spring breeze perfect. Millie and I are sitting by the open door some 15 feet away from the rippling hotel pool. I adore watching the light-and-water dances in pools. Mesmerizing, like fire.

Have you seen Anna Maria's new dress pattern? As soon as I find a second I'm ordering this pattern... ordering this material... and not getting up from the sewing machine until I have this dress. I want to paint my toenails pink and call a friend and sip on a glass of lavender lemonade and sit by the pool in this dress.

This weekend. (Maybe this weekend.) It's on.

P.S. If you're an Agatha Raisin mystery fan, I have five of my M.C. Beaton books up for auction to help benefit To Write Love On Her Arms. Check them out here.)

You could definitely pull off this dress, Brin. And I MUST now taste lavender lemonade!

Very cute dress, it reminds me of the dresses that were in fashion in the 70's when I was a teen. Yikes, did I really just type that?! Enjoying sunshine here in Michigan too. Isn't spring wonderful?

I'd be happy with anything in those materials~ a blanket, an apron, a dress, a bag...love it.
Enjoy the warm weather!!!

My computer crashed and I lost all my bookmarked blogs - last night you suddenly came to mind. So glad to have your inspiring blog back in my reading list!
