summer seersuckin’

My knitting as of late has not been terribly exciting, but my sewing has been kind of fun. I made this blouse over the weekend:
It’s Butterick pattern #6020, which I got at least 5 years ago. The fabric is a Japanese seersucker that I ordered from eQuilter. It is the yummiest seersucker ever! It washes up really nicely and is so soft. You can’t really tell, but there are little fans on the fabric. Just type in “seersucker” in the search box on equilter, and you’ll get a nice selection.
And now for a CANDY UPDATE. I had to go to the grocery store today, and I decided to peruse the candy aisle. Imagine my delight when I found this:

Yes! I was extremely excited. Unfortunately, though, and please do not send hate mail, I do not find them to be terribly delicious. I ate half of the king sized package just to be sure of my opinion. The chocolate doesn’t taste like chocolate. On the plus side, though, the chews have a nice texture, and I love how they come in bite-sized chunks rather than one large bar.

    you ate the milk chocolate one! the orginal dark chocolate variety tastes like chocolate.

    I agree with Rachel! If you can find the original dark chocolate chews, get those instead.

    That’s funny! (Maybe they use chocolate coating for the milk chocolate)
    Have you ever tried Coffee Crisp? Actually the colors of your comment box are Coffee Crisp colors. That’s gooooood stuff.

    I never even knew they made them in milk chocolate! So wrong. The dark chocolate one is tradition, and pretty darn good.

    Yet another triumph from the Super Eggplant studios. It looks great!
    I’m working on a sleeveless top myself tonight, I think it’s a New Look pattern, and the fabric is a really neat subtle, deep purple cotton that was hand dyed.
    Every time I pass the candy aisle these days I’m thinking of you. Maybe I’ll come across some good regional items one of these days.

    I love seersucker. The word itself just cracks me up. I’m supereggplant impressed with your blouse!

    Your Peanut Crisps look different than the ones I find in NYC… or are those Peanut Chews? Would you like to try those? Let me know.

    I LOVE the fabric’s design, I’m going through a little fan (utiwa I think) craze right now :)~

    Oh, that top is too cute. There is always something about your sleeves. I just love how they are a perfect fit. In stores they almost always seem to be too big and floppy or too tight for me. It must be so cool to have the skills to customize or be the perfect size or both!
    You go!

    Peanut chews are vegan — that’s why they taste like that!
