It's always fun trying to decide what to take on vacation.
At least with a car vacation the possibilities are endless
as far as packing clothing for the Outer Banks.
Break Time ... Packing is hard Work
Mommy Katie is doing such a good job she
doesn't need my help anymore ... so I'm
going to take a snooze.
I managed to gather all the westie stuff
--- MISSING ---
The food / treats / toys & antibiotics just in case.
Can't leave home without the supplements.
Of course this afternoon I started to feel flu-like
so I'm hoping it will pass by and keep going.
I forgot to show you what I purchased from the
Westie Foundation of America's sale table at the
dog show last Friday. Wilson wanted a hat, and I
wanted the gray fleece vest, the tote bag and the westie
pupmobile car magnet.

OFF THE SEWING TABLE
I may have mentioned that I don't want to keep scraps
of fabric anymore since my box started overflowing.
So these  dresses are made out of left-over fabric.
What I didn't need for the dresses I cut into blocks
measuring 2-1/2" square.
I'm starting a 'scrappy quilt' collection of tiny blocks.
Everything is Ducky Dress
Lavender & Tan Jacket
My first completed pleated skirt.
I'm excited how well this turned out.
This skirt was cutout & on my sewing table since last year
[basically I was afraid to tackle pleats].
Matching Suit Jacket
The fringe was a little tedious to attach but worth the effort.
The Lime Green & Bright Pink Dot Collection
This jacket took me forever to make.
I had enough fabric for a short outfit.
The sundress in bright happy colors.
McKenna is going to have another fantastic
fashion portfolio when she goes to her forever home.
There something I must confess ...
I'll miss my Bernina sewing machine while on vacation.
She's going in on Friday for her yearly physical.
I'm not sure I can go seven days without sewing.
So in order to make the withdrawal bearable
I'm taking a stack of patterns to cut out.
so I'll be ready to start sewing when I come home
