My birthday often falls on Mothers’ Day so is often ignored. My older sister has a birthday in late September so it often gets swallowed up into the High Holiday season.
My sister is currently going through a Missoni phase. She has purchased several Missoni scarves for herself.
When she saw the dress I had made out of Missoni fabric from Fabric Mart
she was blown away by it. I saw the Missoni lust in her eye.
So the next time a batch of Missoni fabric was available I bought some. I made my sister this drape front cardigan
The shape is fairly simple. I used an exiting sweater as my pattern but extended the fronts to create a draped front. I also cut one of the fronts with the stripes going North-South rather than East- West
Today I posed the sweater for the blog and used the opportunity to snip loose threads. I packed up the sweater and walked it over the the Post Office.
On my way I saw something that is both charming and annoying.
Often when I take the bus to Boston the bus, like this one passes my block on its way out of the city. It’s nice to get a last glimpse of the neighborhood and to mentally shout goodbye to my family as I pass by. but on the other hand, the bus usually passes my house about an hour after I have left home. as my mother says “I coulda stood in bed!”
I also passed a new and annoying art installation.
A bunch of metal sticks in the sidewalk.
The people coming out of PS 163 and the for the 5 seconds you pass the piece you see this.
