I did it!! Thanks to Cathy, an amazing teacher at Spool, I sewed a dress from a pattern! I took the 4 week Party Dress class and learned so much about darts, zippers, lining and skirt gathering. I met some awesome women, including a fellow CHOP worker. I learned that I cannot just decide which aspects of a pattern I want to include in my finished product and I learned that being mindful when I cut a pattern is key.

fresh smoothies for breakfast. strawberry, cherry, blueberry, banana with some trader joe's organic vanilla yogurt (which has now edged out stoneyfield farms as my fave) photo shoot with the Shuka. she's been staying with us for the past month but she's going home to her mom soon. she pretends she doesn't like us, but i know the truth.
potato samosas for a party i went to on saturday night. a little more effort than i usually make but oh so worth it.
went to fallen fruit's annual Fruit Jam, where you bring home-grown or found fruit (i cheated and bought oranges at the farmers market) and everyone gathers together and makes jam. i am now the proud owner of four jars of mixed berry jam. delish.
