Rosa in White

This is the Rosa shirt from Tilly and The Buttons.
.
 I think I found my perfect shirt pattern!
 I love three-quarter length roll-up sleeves with button tabs.
 Excellent opportunity for pretty top stitching along the seams.
 Flattering princess seams.
 Cute small pockets
 I also love pearl snaps!

Ginger Jeans -Eagle

Ginger Jeans with eagle feather embroidery.
Heather Lou's Ginger Jean pattern is exceptional! https://store.closetcasepatterns.com/products/ginger-skinny-jeans-pattern
 WOW! The eagle decided to bless these jeans! I just saw her in the sky of this photo! can you see her above the mountains?
I have been using Heather Lou's ebook  for the instructions on these jeans- it is fabulous! https://store.closetcasepatterns.com/products/sewing-your-own-jeans-ebook
 I decided to make this pair of jeans a little looser fitting because my last pair is a little too tight but than I lost weight so now these are a little too loose! Ah! the fickle finger of fitting!!!!!

 I do love how the eagle feathers came out!


 And the eagle on the back pocket!
"Forgive Me

Angles are wonderful but they are so, well, aloof.
It's what I sense in the mud and in the roots of the
trees, or the well, or the barn, or the rock with
its citron map of lichen that halts my feet and
makes my eyes flare, feeling the presence of some
spirit, some small god, who abides there.

If I were a perfect person, I would be bowing
continuously.
I'm not, though I pause wherever I feel this
holiness, which is why I am often so late coming
back from wherever I went.
Forgive me."
