Another version of McCalls 6747 long-sleeve maxi dress, this one in a tribal print knit from Girl Charlee. And tribal print is really appropriate – I’m almost in the jungle!
I’ve been at my daughter’s house for a week, kitty-sitting while she and DDC have been at the San Diego ComicCon. Their house backs onto a nature preserve – sometimes it seems like all of south Florida nature is 20′ from their back porch!
I’ve seen a lynx on the edge of the preserve (what a rare treat), chased an 8′ black snake from the edge of the porch, removed 10″ worms from inside the porch, and lately, flicked 5″ walking sticks in full ardor from the screen 🙂 I would not have disturbed them, except that the kitties wanted to climb up and observe…
So I bravely hiked out to the edge today to take these pics. It was so wet that I had to toss my zoris aside and go barefoot. And so hot and sunny that the umbrella was a must.
All those pretty white clouds will make up into thunderheads by early afternoon.
The papaya plant is a gift from DD’s neighbor. He started about 20 from seed last December and now has 7 or eight mature plants. What a nice present to take home. They grow so well in my backyard.
I just love this pattern. This makes 3 I’ve done! The others are here…
Did you know that the poppy flower version of this dress is a July Knit Pick on Girl Charlee Fabrics blog?!
