Paris bag & purse finished with time to spare

I made another London City Bag in Paris fabrics . It went together much faster & I only had to watch the you tube video once on putting on the slider on the handle .  I didn't get a picture of all 4 of the little pouches I made , but those were a fun in the hoop project fro zippy designs - boutique bags 
Now I just have to finish packing .

Belcarra top

This fabric is so pretty UP CLOSE - it looks blah from a few feet away & I'm so very disappointed!! It was not cheap & I got it last trip to NYC. I love the colors & it goes with so many skirts etc, but I'm not sure if it will look like it matches from afar. I'm also struggling with the Belcarra. I need to learn an FBA so this top is not so baggy at the waist. I even put long darts in ,  it the fabric is a tad sheer & that's where your focus goes - so I'm taking them out .  Still struggling with patterns that look good on my body type as well as fabrics that work for the pattern. Lots of learning to do 😄

Travel May - whew

A friend asked the other day how my trip was . I saw her the day after we flew back from NYC . So I replied " Great flew in last night " . She said " How long was the cruise "?  . I told her I wasn't on a cruise we were visitng Son,DIL & DGD. She kept asking what happened to the cruise. We had a good laugh when I said the cruise was great but a memory as I had been several places since the cruise !!!!
I didn't tell her we were getting ready for our June river cruise to France & Paris. Wow I'm so lucky & blessed .
The dress for DGD & marching doll dress were a big hit . I'm not sure she totally understand s yet about playing dolls & changing clothes but it was so fun to see a creation I made on someone I love !!
She of course was being a 21 month old & wouldn't look at camera or smile on cue.

Big sewing day today - CLEANING THE SEWING ROOM !!!
