Another Camouflage Top & A Little Bragging!

One last camouflage top made for our trip in November.  Time got away with me so I am just now getting to posting pictures and blogging about it.

Camouflage Knit Top

Neck Band
 I used my usual TNT top pattern.  I made the sleeves elbow length and used matching knit fabric for the neck band.

Easy top to sew up and will go with my green twill skirt and my black denim skirt.  I will get a lot of wear out of this top.

Now for the bragging part:

Boy F. giving me a silly face (But it's my favorite Photo of him!)

Our youngest son, who is only 16 has been accepted to start dual enrollment in college!  He will be taking three classes this coming semester along with going to high school.  He's only a junior!  We are so proud of him.  His guidance councilor informed us that he is currently #3 in his class of 475 students! 

He has been trying to find a job the last few weeks but here in Florida they have a tight law about being at least 18 years of age to work at most retail/foodservice places.  Since we live in such a small town it's tough to find something for someone so young.  He has found a few side jobs painting, pressure washing and yard work, now that he'll be attending college I think we'll give him a little break about working.  But when I see that credit card bill each month for his gas & school supplies, it hurts!

We are so proud of him and have spent the last week helping him with his online registrations and signing him up for all the online stuff he needs.

Thanks for listening & letting me tell you about my sweet boy!

Until next time..................



  1. Love that fabric--been looking for camo knit. Also, could you do a tutorial on how you make the neck band and attach it. I struggle so much with those type of necklines. Your band looks so nice.

    1. Thank you for the encouragement. I will try to work a tutorial on my next shirt for the neckband! Thanks for stopping by.
