Happy 4th of July

Wishing all of you a very Happy 4th of July! Do you guys have anything big planned for the day?

The FOE – best kept secret in Dallas

I’ll be spending it pool side with a few friends at the FOE  (a gem of a place in Dallas) followed by a backyard bbq. Most of you know Katie is the master baker/cook between the two of us, but I’m going to attempt to make her bacon popsicles for the bbq. They look that good right?

 

Last weekend I took advantage of CityCraft’s mega sale and can’t wait to dig into my stash later this weekend.  I’ll be posting my progress via instagram here. Cheers! xo Kristi

stitch: Wiksten Tank Pattern Review

I made the Wiksten tank over the weekend with a fabulous print from Liberty of London (which I had purchased 3 years ago while traveling) and couldn’t believe how easy the pattern and step-by-step instructions were. Seriously, start to finish it took about 2.5 hours (due to tracing the pattern out first). Initially, I envisioned myself wearing this tank with white skinny jeans and heels, aka typical summer attire in Dallas. Once I tried it on though, I realized it was just a bit too short in the front on my frame for jeans. Happy to say though, the tank looks great tucked in to a pencil skirt!

CityCraft  blogged about the Wiskten Tova Top last week, which will be my next weekend project as well. If you’re in Dallas you can purchase both patterns at CityCraft, otherwise they’re available online here. Cheers! xo Kristi
