Collette Ceylon, in progress...

First, some garden updates. I am very proud these plants! It's as if I gave birth to them...

A sideways bell pepper, about the size of my fist. I have about 10 of those, and a bumper crop of jalapeƱo peppers. 
 Next, my Ceylon in progress. Since I am underlining the sheer fabric (mainly so I don't have to finish all the seams on the sheer fabric, oh and the lack of a full slip), it is taking some time. Plus, I wasted all of Thursday evening napping on the sofa. Maybe wasted isn't the right word, because it was delicious!

Now, I just notices the tuck I accidentally made, so I will have to pick that out and fix it. I am not sure, but holding it up the waist seemed very small. What ever, if it doesn't fit I will give it to skinny Stephanie and she will be gleeful.

If I was to make this again, I would eliminate that back seam! Who wants a seam gripping your butt crack? Ick. 

Lastly, my bean plants are both blooming and making baby beans. There is one right in middle hanging down.

I will work on it this weekend and hopefully finish it!!!

I might also drive to the Mississippi River and take some pictures of how incredibly high the water is!

Everyone, have a good weekend!!!!


  1. I can't wait to see how your dress turns out! Hopefully it will fit. :]

  2. Yeah me too. I totally understand you about napping on the sofa. Yesterday I went to have a "nap" at 8:30pm, and woke up this morning. I did sew what I wanted to sew, but the "nap" was delicious too. Lol.

  3. Ooh, I can't wait to see it finished! I have this pattern waiting patiently to be made :)

  4. I really like your dress and I hope after all the work it fits. Your garden is so amazing I was watching the news about the flood and saw a farmers field with corn 6' tall! I am just planting my tomatoes today?!


Thanks for your thoughts and feedback!
