Today I start my vacation!  This time DH and I are actually going somewhere that will require overnight stay for several days- the beach!  Today is running around getting car cleaned, filled up and ready to pack.  I am getting a mani-pedicure this afternoon; got to have those hoofs and paws looking good!  Some last minute food supplies and we will be ready to go bright and early tomorrow AM!

Sewing is taking a back seat for several days.  The dress bodice is basically complete; I need to hem the dropped sleeves.  The skirt should be easy to attach, though there is a casing for elastic to be sewn before that is finalized.  I also need to find an appropriate belt buckle for the belt I am making to go with the dress.  I will have time when we come back to finish this dress to get some wear from it before summer slips into autumn.  I am trying to gear up to start some transitional sewing; I love summer even though it has been a hot one, so will hate to see it slip away.
