Abby's Road Trip Tunic Tour - Day 3

Today's stop is over on Little Heart Threads. Michelle does it all: blogging, sewing, strike offs, patter testings.. and always beautiful. Her style, to me, always reflects clean, sophisticated, and ready-for-adventure-at-a-moments-notice at the same time. I love it.  Her take of Abby's Road Trip Tunic has me all kinds of happy. I love the crisp neckline, the bouncing girl, the color choices and the feel all of it combined conveys! Take a look at her post! And don't forget to enter the giveaway at the end, to win the pattern yourself! Happy sewing, Saskia Smith

Twig + Tale Upcycling Blog Tour

I can't wait for spring. I can't wait to go for really long walks along the river with my girl, with her doing what she likes to do - checking every big hole in tree.

Glamour Swirl Skirt by Sew by Pattern Pieces Blog Tour Stop
