We’re out in the Madison area for about a month. That’s a long time to be cooped up in a hotel room, even an extended stay one. Even though it was all very last minute, I was able to find a log cabin that we’re renting for two of the weeks that we’re here. It’s the exact opposite of the one room hotel that will make up the other half of our trip. It’s an absolute treat to have a bit of room to stretch out and there are lots of great places around here to take photographs.
This top is SUPER easy. There is literally a front piece, a back piece and three pieces of binding for the neck and two sleeves. I can’t really say much more about it. It takes no time at all to make. I used a Liberty of London fabric called Widdas Waltz. It’s like a flowery sunset, with so many layers of pattern. So pretty. Speaking of Liberty. Our next shipment should be arriving in about two weeks!!!!
I’ve discovered Ciao Bello Sorbet. YUM. I finished off that blood orange tub and I’m about to crack open a raspberry one tonight.

Ok. Ciao Bella makes a lot of really good products, among them are their ice cream sandwiches. They make a key lime, and a smore. The key lime is bitter, and the graham cracker cookie sandwich part is crazy town, and the smore is marshmallowy. Again with the same cookie outside. They are perfect. So cheers all around for Ciao Bella, and your new top!
