Pom pom chick

Spring = Chicks!

Every wednesday I spend the day in the company of a charming young lady. This wednesday  it was very rainy and windy and so for some reason she did not feel like running errands with me!
A while ago I saw this project on the Crafty Crow, so it was decided that we will go to our local fabric and yarn store to buy a pom pom maker! Yeah!

Oh how fun! I have never used one of these devices , but it is so easy. Our chick did not have the florist wire legs from the tutorial, we used pipe cleaners and our chick is MUCH bigger (I got the bigger pom size) so ours is just sitting happily looking at the world!

Oh and this guy is wearing a scarf, spring can be cold in Boston!

Now I have to make at least 5 more!

Happy spring!

Linen hat.

Yes, everyday around here feels more like spring and summer!
Today I would like to show you this linen hat that I just love! I first thought that the decoration makes it too dressy , after all it is a fabric hat. But the more I look at it the more I like it.

I used a copper color linen for the hat and for the decoration I used a small pink vintage feather, a piece of leopard silk chiffon and a piece of Anna Maria Horner fabric.(love)

This hat could be worn everyday, but I can see it with an amazing linen suit, or dress.

Linen skirt.

After my promise to sew more for myself I have purchased and cut some skirts to sew for summer, but found myself needing an in between skirt that is not made from summer prints and will go with "most" of my other clothes.
Enter the linen skirt, and what better colors to use than latte brown and grey-ish black!

As you can see it goes really well with a red and white polka dot sweater!

I came across this great skirt from Anna Maria Horner. And I think what my skirt needs is one more row of elastic. I also did not make mine so wide and measured my hips and added a bit onto the side to help it fit. It is true that wearing it higher in the waist makes the skirt fit, flattering. 
I can't wait to wear it with a t-shirt and cardigan!
