KNITTERS-DELIGHT

Family Fun and FOs - McCall's 6083



My Sister Pam came to visit me in San Diego this past weekend. We had a blast! Shopping, shopping, more shopping....eating, eating, and tons more eating! lol.




I managed to almost make her a dress - which I will finish and mail out to her this weekend. We got mani/pedis, bought hair products, had our eyebrows threaded, went to Bikram yoga....you name it, we done did it. lol.




I have heard about threading for years now, but never had the opportunity to try it out. While eating at an Indian restaurant at a local hot spot, I saw a flyer for it and immediately called to schedule an appointment for my Sis and I. Lovin' it. Kim gave me an incredible shape to my brows and I know I'll be a repeat customer since it last much longer than waxing (3 full weeks)!




Here's a full length view of my new jumper. Erica and Mimi both had gorgeous versions of this jumper so I had to try it out. I used an inexpensive $2.97/yard wearable muslin fabric from Yardage Town to try it out. The next version will be a charcoal gray knit.

Love it!!! You look so nice and Springish. I purchased this pattern recently. I know I will be making my version up soon.

It looks and sounds like you and your sister were painting the town all sorts of colors. I've had my eyebrows threaded before. It's really cool and I like the after results, but it does feel weird while getting it done.

I like the jumper too when Erica made it. I went out and bought the pattern. I have yet to make it though. But I will!

You always seem to have a great time with your family. It's a blessing.

Keep up the sewing! You're doing a fabulous job.

I like the jumpsuit. Very cute. And, just so you know, I'd love to be yours and Pam's adopted sister. I love to eat, shop and laugh, and I'm really not much trouble at all!

I'm not usually one for jumpsuits, but something about the pink color, the wrap front, the wide obi belt and the shoes makes me LOVE this look. I think the word I'm looking for here is FIERCE.

Eliana said...

Sister said...

You are ROCKING the jumper, but what the heck is eyebrow threading? Do they thread that through your SKIN? Yikes!

Eugenia said...

Wow!! I love that jumpsuit you look so fabulous in it. Your styling is spot on - the shades, the belt, the sandals all work perfectly.

Great new outfit! I like the picture of you and your sister. I never tried threading as waxing works pretty well for me, but maybe I will try someday.
