🎷 Summertime … and the livin’ is easy … 🎺

The Great Ella Fitzgerald sung that song.  Such talent.  It sprang into mind as I sat there looking at the dozing cats …

and beautiful sunshine and flowers this afternoon …

as I pondered what to pack.

Yes, “Nice dress!  Thanks, I made it!!” and Jerry the Minion are off on another adventure! This time visiting another sister, susanonthesoapbox, and the Calgary Stampede, among other things.  Now susanonthesoapbox won’t allow me to bring my sewing machine along, not even my petit Featherweight, or if it’s not her, then it’s the airline?  I dunno.  I’m not quite sure who is the greater power between the two … so as a result, there will be no sewing here for two weeks.  ☹️  BUT! Yes I say BUT!  If I do see something sewing related in my travels, I will share it with you – like last time I went to Calgary and saw THE Biggest Sewing Room in Canada!

I will positively be posting over on Instagram while I’m gone – so come visit me there! (@nicedressthanksimadeit) and I will attempt to keep Jerry the Minion under a bit more control this time, than when we went to MEXICO, as I am sure susanonthesoapbox would not approve.


So keep posting and I shall keep reading.

Happy Sewing!
