Margy -
Thanks for chiming in. I love the one you selected!
I saw some place that it was referenced as a circle vest. Is it circular? Thanks. Martha

I think it's called a circle vest because the collar is not a shawl collar


I wouldn't call it a circle vest...

Yes, Im in Chicago and it's definitely warmer in Australia! I live Chicago though. It will take an international move to get me to leave.

I forgot something important, My cat did NOT have a sex change operation, he  was very black, and we only THOUGHT he was a girl, so when we took him to the vet to get fixed, that's when we found out he was a boy cat, NOT a girl cat. That would be Gwenivere who had a name change only to Prince Lancelot.

These plans are amazing!
Stephanie, I want those patterns in my size. What an adorable start!

Wendy, my 9 year old planned a SWAP for her too. These kids are brilliant! Can't wait to see how you transform those plans to real life.

Cherylanne, either of your plans will be amazing, and those shoes, what an inspiration piece!

IndigoTiger, I hope you do the blouse. It would be so wonderful to have that TNT pattern. Of course the cutest clothes are worthless if you're cold.

Eva, I love those colors and your plan, particularly on your croquis is so useful. I'll have to do that.

MsSindy, I envy you your shopping adventures! And that fabric! So luscious. Can't wait to see what you make of it.

Lynne, those textures! Not boring at all. What a wonderful sewing stash.

Maggie, I love your plan. Burgundy is very in this year. Can't wait to see the Chanin inspired piece!

FabriKate, I love your colors and the fabric painting. So excited to see it come together this year.

Magimum, that wardrobe is so wearable and chic at the same time. I can't wait to see the trench coat!

I've done a sketch of my plan, but I just got paint all over my best dark wash skinny jeans. sigh. So they need replacing at some point, but at least I have another pair of painting pants.  ::) They might work their way into my SWAP. So excited to get cutting!

Diane, that is hilarious!  Your cats don't bother the mice!    :laugh:

We had a small snake get into the house once.  How did we know?   The cats came to get us to get rid of it!

 This is not the first cat food stash , the mice have done it before. and the only dead mice we've had, has been in mousetraps.

  we had a black snake in our house in North Carolina. I think our cat ignored it. He did like to tear grasshopper's legs off. That was Prince Lancelot (was Gwenivere (sp). He was our cat from England. Yes, we brought our cat with us, couldn't leave him behind.
HERE, the orange thing (Ivan) brings snakes on the porch to play with.

Miranda, I could be wrong, but I THINK that Australia is MUCH warmer than where you are now (Chicago?). Just watch out for kicking kangaroos. ;D

Pina you might be remembering our potential move to Paris. We were considering selling our house earlier this year if we went through with the move and I think I talked about it here. We were to the point that we were looking at neighborhoods and schools in Paris and trying to decide what to do with our house. We were considering selling our bungalow and buying a small house close to our friend just so we could retain a US address. Then it all fell through and Josh decided he didnt think it was a good idea to go.

We'll get abroad some day!

Well Elizabeth, I'm not sure how it works in Sweden, but in the southern hemisphere 6 + 4 + 1 = 11.   ;D

Don't confuse me with facts or logic.

Sounds good!  Though as I mentioned I personally would fold and press the open edges of the tie that are going to attach to the neckline BEFORE you actually attach it to the neckline.  I think that is easier.

Sometimes, depending on the fabric, I have interfaced the tie.  Or half of it.  Sometimes not.
