Ok, here is my first day of school dress. This is the Linnet One Piece with Roll Collar without the collar! And the fabric is from Melody Miller's Spring Line called Ruby Star Rising. I love Melody Miller's designs and I love reading her blog: http://melodymiller.typepad.com/
I just wish my arms didn't look so big! I better go and do some exercise now! Sewing alone will not tone those upper arms!

Today I said "Good-Bye" to my trusty old Jeep Cherokee. Last year I found someone who would give me an inspection sticker after he repaired the hole in the floor and cut the rust off the bottom. This year, I was told that it was "time." The frame was broken. I have had this truck since 1993. Every single childcare provider had a fender bender in it! I have pulled my friends, neighbors and myself out of numerous snow banks with it! Always started, even at below zero temps. I am hoping that it will be reincarnated into a beautiful metal sculpture or part of a giant sky scraper!
Anyway, for the occasion, I wore my new Echino purple gingham shirt made from a pattern in Wendy's U Sew book. I used my fancy stitches and made a decorative statement on the top of the pocket! I went to work wearing it and Pauline in tech said that it inspired her to have a picnic lunch! Great to have clothing that inspires fun!
