Indian Summer? Nahhhh Spring just arrived!

Howdy folks and good afternoon to ya!…this post can be looked at as a continuance from my last post about my modified Indian Summer dress (pattern by the lovely Christine Haynes)…..I decided to wear it today and whadaya know, I also felt like taking pictures….I contribute my huge amount of energy to the Blood Moon last night and my bowl of Fage, pineapple, strawberries, and honey…..Yes, we ARE Ag Country (our nickname for our area) and our fresh fruit **and veggies** are always in abundance….I take full advantage like all the time; I believe I can live off fruit if I had to (I wouldn’t feel punished at all)….The honey came from a local honey guy and I I copped a few bottles on one of my many trips to Farmer’s Market….He has cool honey flavors like Pomegranate Blossom, Avocado, and Stonefruit…I bought so many he gave me a free bottle!…..We really are the shizzzznit when it comes to that kinda stuff….one of the good things I can boast about in this city in which I was born and raised….
Now on to this dress….I explained in the last post that I modified it a bit to MY tastes which meant eliminating the straps and using a woven fabric instead of the usual cotton….I just love it yall!…I really do…I like when my creations come out cool; I tend to wear them out which is the point of it all right?….I paired it with a wrist full o’ bangles (like I always rock) and some cool wedges…I LOVE WEDGES; that’s it and that’s all…and the wedges gave this outfit a much needed color pop as my flowers are blushing a bit….My sweetest has been taking my pictures so if they are crazy I blame him hehehehe….j/k he’s doing all right in my opinion; I just need to get a snazzier camera….I’ve been looking around too…..Well let me share the flicks now; Judge Judy comes on in 20 minutes and yall know thats my girl forreal! LOL!
Talk to you good people soon! (maybe around Easter time)

I sew a whole lot, I buy waaaaayyyyy too much fabric, and I have an obsession with books (especially sewing books and magazines), shoes, and fat quarters (and I don't even quilt)...Bags will always hold a special place in my heart; I still make em from time to time.....random fact about me**the pin cushions on the front page were made by my Mama and me....She made the yellow one and I whipped up the red one.....I can ramble all day about sewing and I feel a good ramble coming on sewwwww I'll stop here (pun intended).....Oh! My name is Christy but all my friends call me Chris!
