Summer Dress Redux

In an attempt to get a bit more wear out of this summer frock, a couple of weeks ago I turned it into a jumper for the day and paired it with one of my favorite blouses.

This week it turned really COLD and rainy.  Now, if you live in a truly frigid climate, today was probably bikini weather, but here in the Bay Area, we are cold weather wimps.

Which means it is time to pull out the tights, and wear (and knit!) lots of sweaters.

I managed to burn the top of my hand baking dinner this evening – what a dummy.  Only last week I caught my arm on the edge of the iron.  I really have no idea what I was doing flailing my arms about, which is the only thing that explains how I got the top of my forearm with the iron edge.  When did I become such a klutz?

I think I will relax with a cup of tea, some knitting needles, and yummy wool yarn!

  1. This is so, so splendidly pretty, dear Laura! I adore the feminine hues, the whole silhouette, and the charming floral pattern of the blouse. It's all so sweet, fun and cheerful!
