|Here I am at South of the Border, a fantastic, old, kitschy roadside attraction. I'm wearing my Colette Hazel.|
|Here's my Colette Lily. It's actually the first time I've worn it since the Fourth.|

Before I left I started working on another New Look 6808 only I'm modifying it a bit. I mashed together the neckline of Colette Pattern's Sorbetto with the bodice/sleeves of 6808 and I'm adding a self drafted peter pan collar. So far, so good. As you can see, I have a fair bit to finish but now that I'm back I'm hoping to take to the sewing machine soon.
While driving all....those....hours....I finished a project I've been working on for about 6 months. Yes...6 months. I'm a seasonal knitter. I love to knit but I can only do it in the cooler months for some reason. I started this pattern back in March but when it started getting warm I quickly ditched it. When I got some knitting mojo back I went to pick it up but I was a bit daunted at figuring out where I left off. The long car ride was just what I needed to finish it. I blocked it this morning and ta-da! It is by no means perfect. It's actually pretty awful. You would never believe I've been knitting for four years by the looks of it. BUT I did teach myself to knit continental with this one and it'll do it's job and keep me warm... so all in all...I'm pleased.
Anyhoo, lots of fall sewing to come. I've got the next pattern in Sew Colette 2.0 to work on, the Peony. I'm also tempted by Juniper. Anyone make those up yet? What are you all working on? I need some inspiration!
