Weekend sewing

I didn't finish anything this weekend, but I did manage to get a really good head start on a summery top I want to take along on our upcoming Florida vacation to see my parents.

It was inspired by a child's shirt, the Cathy pattern on Jennifer Paganelli's blog. Is that a bad idea? I dunno. I liked the combo.

I found this New Look pattern (6937) that really piqued my interest. I cut it out in version B.

I had the Jennifer Paganelli cottons in my stash - flower power green and mod girls brown zebra.

I hope to finish it tomorrow night so I can share in the loveliness that is Jennifer Paganelli and warm weather.

I hope to be able to have a running Monday post of weekend sewing projects. In its honor, or just because it came to my feeble mind just now, I'll have a fun giveaway in the next few weeks - Heather Ross' book Weekend Sewing.

I have it in my collection, have read it, and would love to pass it along to someone who could really sew from it, learn from it. If you already have Heather's book, don't fret. I'll have a back-up option equally lovely. So check back, say, next Monday?

Happy Monday everyone ~
