Back from Vacation

I'm back from vacation, over a span of 15 days my husband and I walked 325km in Northern Spain, from Leon to Santiago de Compostella. With a couple of weeks to go before I return back to work, I'm hoping to get back to my sewing projects.

Waiting for me in my mailbox when I got home, was the June issue of Burda style. They're lots of great ideas in it. The pattern I really like is Burda 143, an asymmetric V neck top with shoulders that extend into cap sleeves. The only concern I have is that the pattern is a plus size, and I'm not. So, my challenge is to either scale down the pattern or choose one of my existing top patterns and redraft it using the Burda style pattern as a basis. ...decisions...decisions...

On Vacation

Summer hasn't quite arrived in Calgary, but it has in Spain. So, we're off for a few weeks of travels on the Camino de Santiago de Compostela. My husband and I are walking 325km of the Way of St James. For those who are interested in our travels you can visit our blog at

I ordered a subscription to Burda Style today, hoping that it will be in my mailbox shortly after I arrive home. Amanda's June picks prompted me to sign up sooner rather than later, check them out at

type at you later....
