New Look 6802, take 2

In October I made up New Look 6802 & really liked how it came out. I promptly pulled out another another knit to make it in, and then ended up packing it away in a box with the pattern. This morning I was looking for a quick dress to make to wear to my grandma's 90th birthday party & stumbled over the pattern & fabric.

Viola, new party dress! Just as easy to make as last time. :-) This is "French Dressing Knit - Grays/Pink" from gorgeousfabrics.com.

Anyway, My grandma's party was lots of fun. She's still in great health and as sassy as always. Here she is with my sister & Ana.

Grandma's 90th birthday party

When she was growing up she actually lived very close to where I live now so we talked a lot about Jersey City in the 1930s vs today. It's growing on me... I still miss Seattle quite a bit, but we do have nice sunrises here. I took this yesterday morning on a walk around block.

That's a view of the World Financial Center and Battery Park from the Morris Canal inlet in the Paulus Hook part of Jersey City. The interesting morning clouds were about all of the hurricane that we really ended up getting!
