The shop recently received some Palos Verdes voile from Cloud 9 and I am in love! I just couldn't wait to make something with it, especially since I had been drooping over it months ago when I first saw a glimpse of it. It has such beautiful colors and the fabric is so soft.
I decided to make a top for myself and then a top for the Goob. For myself I am working on another Datura Blouse by Deer and Doe, but this time I am going to make the version with the Peter Pan-like collar. I am pretty excited about this one. My first Datura, had the triangle cutouts. My favorite print from the Palos Verdes collection is the Abalone Cove, so I went with that one for my new Datura.
Then for the Goob's top I wanted to make the tunic version of the Oliver and S Roller Skate dress since I loved the construction of it so much when I made the Hello Petal version a couple of weeks ago. I let her pick with of the four prints she wanted and she went with the Malaga Cove....she does LOVE pink!
I have also been trying to finish up a quilt I have literally been working on for around seven years! Is that crazy? I have nothing to compare it to really, but that is the longest for me. It was the third quilt I started way back when Neptune by Tula Pink Honey Buns were on sale for around $18 on Ebay! It will be such a relief and joy to finally get this one finished. I just need to sew on the binding...you would think I would hop to it since I am so close, but perhaps I am subconsciously elongating it! Who know?!?!
Thanks so much for stopping by and this post is linked up with WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced.
