Well, the San Francisco Bay Area has been having something of a heat wave! It doesn’t feel like our normal Indian Summer, not with these 80+ degree temperatures! So the kids and I headed out of the city today to Stinson Beach. It turned out to be a very excellent choice. It got up to about 90 degrees, I think. Nor-Cal water is frigid even in super hot temps, but it felt great anyway. We pretty much got soaked up to our necks.
Taking a break from the water with watercolors!
The nice thing about staying for a super long time is that we were all ready to go at the same time. No fussing!
We made a quick stop at JoAnn’s on the way home for the last few bits and pieces for Halloween costumes, and while the kids passed out watching Monsters, Inc., I finished the zipper and apron for the Wee Girl’s dress. This was my first time putting a zipper into a garment, and it went ok. There was a tiny part where it looks like the fabric didn’t quite catch, but I sewed in an extra line on each side of the zipper (topstitching? edge stitching?), so I think it’s safe.
I veered from the apron instructions because 1) I didn’t understand them and 2) the Wee Girl and I thought that the apron should be attached to the dress, for security purposes.
Now I just need the Girl to try it on and decide on the right length! Then we’ll be ready for pumpkin patch photo ops, Halloween parties and parades, trick-or-treating….
I hope your Saturday was as excellent as mine!
