to market, to market...

Tomorrow marks the first Farmer's Market of the season for those of us here in Greencastle. I'm thrilled to be back in the saddle, as they say. We've expanded a bit this year and are planning to bring heirloom varieties of spinach, lettuce, radishes, pea shoots, cilantro and salad kale this first Saturday. Of course, the white-deathless cookies will make an appearance, as will baked goods from MamaLisa...warm cinnamon rolls...yum. I'm thinking I'll need to nab one of the those for myself.

a dress

I have finally managed to put together (with help!) a dress for this summer. It was Vogue 8229, now out of print, apparently. I made the sleeveless version in a navy linen (I'm trying to introduce something other than black to my closet). I skipped the zipper, since I could get it on over my head without, and overall it went together very easily. I have several other summer dresses lined up, but seeing as how it took well over a month or two to finish this one with all the other things I have going on, I should probably just aim for one garment per season.
