|My new Violet blouse!|
Last weekend I finished my first Violet blouse from Colette Patterns. I love this pattern! The peter pan collar and the back yoke are both so sweet. The yellow fabric I used is a quilting cotton and the pink floral fabric of the back yoke is from a vintage pillow case.
We went to the Riverfront in Dubuque and the Mines of Spain to enjoy the first nice weather of spring and to show off my new top.

|I found a handsome pile of driftwood.|
|This is a vintage brooch from Mexico. I like the contrast of the dark silver next to the pale yellow fabric.|
|Surveying the riverfront.|
|I found a nice resting place.|
Earlier that day we went antiquing and I found this darling cake-stand. Josh and I have been gathering miscellaneous vintage items for our wedding next spring. We are going for a vintagy, eclectic feel with lots of spring flowers!
|I love the delicately painted purple roses and the dainty gold accents.|
Today I started my muslin for the new Colette Laurel pattern - so far it looks like it is going to fit (fingers crossed). Have a great week!
