Swimsuit Progress and River Fest

Since the weather outside is so beautiful and the kickoff for the Wichita River Festival started today (a highly under advertised event unless you live in Wichita), I spent the afternoon downtown – eating a giant turkey leg, roasted corn (drenched in butter), drinking a beer, and listening to local band play music. Too bad I was too full to eat a funnel cake.
Needless to say, I ran out of time to finish up Taylor’s swimsuit. I did manage to get part of the top done and it’s starting to take shape.

I’m still wishing that she would have selected a halter type top, but this style will be fine for the backyard.
My sister-in-law graduates from college tomorrow (Congratulations Jaime!) – I’ve armed myself with the latest issue of Threads for the trip there! I can’t wait to read about using your serger to make pintucks (never tried it) and making a model of yourself to test out garments before you sew.
