Knit Basics for Fall - Blackwood Cardigan and New Look 6530

Mood Fabrics' pique knit and rib knit for Blackwood Cardigan and New Look 6530

Sometimes I just need some basics, fun basics in knit.  I bought these beautiful fabrics from Mood Fabrics in August  and went to planning for fall.  First up is Mood Fabric’s Rust Stretch Knit Pique and let me tell you this fabric is so luxurious and I want all the colors.  How many colors?  There is nine!  The next fabric is Mood Fabrics’ Rust and Navy Striped Rib Knit  and as I hoped when ordering these two fabrics look so good together.

Ode to Summer - Feeling Blue in Tea House Top and Roscoe Blouse

Girls in the Garden sews from Indiesew two new patterns, Tea House Top and Roscoe Blouse

I am one that loves when the seasons change but I am always sad when summer comes to an end.  I love summer, being outside, my flowers, the pool, grilling and all things summer.  In this post, I have two garments, patterns from IndieSew and I have made them in blue fabric.   I guess it is my mood, feeling blue that is Labor Day and summer is coming to an end.
