Kids, Colors, and Sewing

There was a variety of  activities this week.  I went to my grand-nephew's first birthday party.  His name is Chase, and he is a wonderful little boy.

Joe, Max, and I rode up to look at fall colors with Larry and his wife Karen.  Hope Valley is only an hour from where we live.  It is always a pretty place.  We like to camp there.  However, this day it was just for a picnic and picture taking.

I also finished my Simplicity 7330 shirt.  I really like this pattern.  There is no hand sewing and the collar is quite simple. It looks 50s or 60s retro, even though the pattern is from 1991.
I like this pattern so much, I am going to make a shirt for Joe with it as my next project.

Thanks for stopping.
