What a wonderful weekend! For one of my daughter birthdays, we went to Preston Vinyard
and Farm for a family picnic. It’s not often that I get to be with all of my daughters at the same time, and take pictures of us all together. The weather was very warm, almost hot, and so I was able to wear one of my favorite creations. I really don’t remember what the make up is of this particular fabric, but it is a little see-through, so I lined the bra part. The bottom is cut on the bias, so it lays very nicely over the body. The spaghetti straps are turned easily with a thin metal gismo that is made exactly for that.
Preston Vinyard is a wonderful place for a picnic.There are spacious grounds with eclectic colorful chairs, outbuildings, a tasting-room, and huge wine barn. They sell fresh eggs, daily baked bread, produce, and of course, their own bottled wine.
As you can see, I have a beautiful bunch of girls to call my own. I am proud to say that they are all very artistic and creative, each in their own way. I think they all take after me to some extent. We get together as much as possible these days to have some quality girl time. One of the required shots we always take is the “jump shot”. It’s always good for a laugh. Have a great week of sewing!
