tuck me in

Tucked by a cozy window, ensconced in a good book with plenty of warm light and my feet up is my idea of the perfect morning weekend. The above vintage illustrations is one of my favorites, by R.Wilcox.
Fast forward to an adult sitting pretty sporting this lovely top which I found on etsy and it sold.
Off to the fabric shop and to make a pretty top with tucks. The delicate floral in tandem with the pretty pin-tucks adds a femininity to jeans. I love sewing pin-tucks. Tuck me right in that window seat with a stack of design magazines, and I will be happy. Care to join me?
Happy weekend to each of you.

Good morning, if it would not be for this rather animated weekend over here, I would be right there next to you, reading through my latest book!
You are so talented, can't wait to see your wearable creation!

Happy weekend, girlfriend!

Sounds just perfect! While house shopping a couple years ago I looked at a home with a very large window seat flanked with bookcases. I raved about it to my mom, about how wonderful it would be to read and nap...she got a laugh out of that! Whose life are you talking about?!

I love sewing pintucks too! When my daughter was an infant, I made her christening gown with rows and rows of pintucks. I miss those days...
(Patricia I will try to find a photo of the christening gown and either send it to you or post it on my blog). Lovely image in the window seat.
