Terms: thank the Liebster Blog presenter....the very kind KC!
Post the Liebster Blog award. There it is.
Pass the award along to five other blogger with fewer than 200 followers.
Well, here's where I'm going to fail. It pains me to pick only five when there are so many creative bloggers who write and post just for the joy of sharing in this wonderful community. So I'd like to challenge anyone reading this post to check out unfamiliar names on my blog roll and on the blog rolls of others. Read some unknown bloggers' posts this week and then send them a comment on it. We all love encouragement and a friendly face across the internet. I'm committing to finding five new-to-me blogs and sharing my appreciation. What about you?
|Draped Front Cardigan|
On the sewing front I am grateful to the cool weather for inspiring me to pull out some wool jersey in a luscious turquise teal color and make another Draped Front Cardigan from Pamela's Patterns. This delightful "third layer" fits my casual, sportswear style and is the right length to wear with the straighter leg jeans that are currently fashionable. Now I'm going to add some tone on tone embellishing to give it some more style than just a simple cardigan. Of course, there's a warm front moving in this week which will probably coincide with my finishing that embellishing. C'est la vie.

|Looking remarkably good after almost 500 miles!|
Baltimore is a city with plenty of problems and challenges but just like the small town in Bridge of Sighs it is full of people trying to figure out their own place in the world while caring for their families, friends and neighbors. It's nice to be here and part of that for the next five months.
|Mostly unpacked and put away for the next five months|
