Bonneville Dam and Rooster Rock

It was a gorgeous day here in the NW today, so Bob and I went on a road trip. We spent a little time at Bonneville Dam eating Doritos and walking around.
Then we went to Rooster Rock and eat more Doritos. It was an awesome day.
















Groovy Shirt



Hee Haw!


I tried to make the pocket align with the rest of the pattern. I'ts difficult to tell from the photographs that there pocket at all. 
This shirt has a pretty wild pattern but it's fun for summer.

Mandarin Collar Shirt

I finished this shirt the other night, and I am pleased with it for the most part. There are a few things I might change next time such as making the collar a tad shorter, and distancing between the collar button and the first button a tad wider. I love the collar as well as the pattern, and the fabric itself is very soft. Also, I have other buttons that are wood that I will use next time.

This shirt took me a day to make working on it in the morning then later in the evening. It cost $8 dollars.

I have more of this fabric, so I am going to give this one to a friend, and make another one for me.










Kayaking the Willametta

I started out at Oak's Park, then I went around Ross Island. It took about four hours. I was exhausted when I got back to Oak's Park...
