A customer of mine from at least 20 years ago, asked me to copy his old vest that I had originally made for him. It was fun seeing it again and seeing how my methods have evolved over time. The new vest is pictured here with Alice.
I like the back lacing because it makes it adjustable.
My current machine makes nice eyelets so I used them instead of buttonholes.

Happy Friday 13th! I'm not superstitious but here is a black cat for good measure!
She keeps coming inside, uninvited. I would let her stay in, but our other two cats hiss at her.
She will just have to be content being a yard cat.

My daughter and I had a girl's day out recently and we went to All Fired Up. We both did owl plates. It was a lot of fun and her plate (top) was a Facebook Favorite!
I haven't decided where to display them yet. We could eat off them if we wanted.
