Hello Again! Wasn't the bag in the last post fun? I really enjoyed working with the bright colors. I am now on to creating another transitional outfit; one that can go from hot humid summer to crisp cool fall. I will share a sneak peek of the fabric and pattern for the first piece at the end of the post, but for now I am dying to share the pictures of the Red Sand Beach with you! I am still amazed and awed when I think of its remarkable beauty.
This is not an easy beach to hike into even though it is only about a 5 minute walk. That is because you are hiking along the edge of a hill that is made out of cinders. The trail is fairly high up with rocks down below. It is narrow with some areas having no flat place to step, like the trail has been washed away. It also has unstable footing due to the loose cinders. It is a good idea to: 1) have walking shoes, not slippers (flip-flops) 2) be a person who doesn't become paralyzed by heights 3) be respectful of the trail. In-other-words, "Don't goof off!"
Okay, if you are still with me, let's take a peek.
My little sneak peek pales in comparison, but here it is. I am using Butterick 5649 and making the view C skirt. I've had this mid-weight 100% cotton plaid in my stash for a couple of years and think it will transition well from summer to fall. Hopefully I will have it done in the next day or two. I do hope everyone's week is off to a great start. I am back into the fall school and sports routine with my boys, and am looking forward the adventure!
