Sometimes you just have to stop

We are home safely from Ireland and had a lovely time.  I think Jack enjoyed it the most.  He chased cows, cats, mice and pheasant, ate cow food and drank their fresh milk.  Ian and I also had a great time.  How couldn't you with these views around you all day long?

MMJ at Ladies View.  It was windy!
I managed to tissue fit the two jackets and make a toile for the one I want to take to class next week.  Other than that, I read a great book (The Red Queen), made lots of cups of tea, visited Cork, Fermoy, Kilarney and Ian's family.  It was a lovely break and I'm already looking forward to going back in September.

MMJ's gone out the window.  I know I'm wearing and using something I have made every day, but have no real photographic evidence to back it up...

On the sewing front I'm making another shirt as the one pictured above, in pink and have the Speed Tailoring class on Monday and Tuesday next week and will do a review on it later.

That's it from me for today, enjoy your weekend and "c'mon Murray!"
