You have a beautifully coordinated wardrobe Sharon. Every outfit looks great. I am quite envious of your sewing meetups and your fabric shopping day.

I have been following you for a while, but I am a lazy commenter! I have to say you have such a great coordinated wardrobe, very well thought out. I especially love your Miette.

Alison said...

Happy birthday for the 19th. How nice to have the day off. What a great wardrobe you have. Love the new additions of fabric. Did you make the Miette? If so you are even more talented than I thought and I already thought you were amazing. And OMG - I need to cut off my head - I didn't realise I was so tall!!.
