“Garden Picnic”

Who would like to have a picnic in the garden with sweet Lucy?  She’s all ready for a happy outing, and is bringing the sweets!

Lucy is wearing a most appropriate dress printed with roses and other pretty blossoms.  The dress is a drop waist style with a pink ribbon tied around the waist.

A lace merino wool sweater in lace weight heathered aqua covers her shoulders in case it gets a little cool, or they find the perfect picnic spot in the shade.  Bullion stitched embroidered rose motifs are scattered on the front of the sweater which can be worn open or closed.

Lucy is bringing to the picnic the yummiest of sweets: an iced donut, a flower-shaped cookie, and an iced strawberry sweet roll.  I promise these are calorie free!  They all fit into her crocheted picnic basket, and can nestle inside the little rosy cotton lawn napkin.

A crocheted headband with bow, panties (also with a bow), anklets, and bracelet complete Lucy’s “Garden Picnic” ensemble.

    Yes I would! Thank you very much for the invitation, Lucy, but I ‘ll bring sweets too, they are too few in your little basket!!!
    Congratulations for the beautiful ensemble, I love the sweater’s colour!
    it is very hot in France, but unfortunately some regions have undergone devastating storms with wind and hail.
    I wish you a beautiful week-end and I hope that you and your family are well.
    Kind regards.

      Hello, Catherine! Thank you for bringing more sweets to our picnic. You can never have too many treats, can you? I love this color of yarn too, especially in the heathered yarn.
      I didn’t know about all the bad weather you’ve been having in France. I hope everything is okay by you.
      We are all well here. I am enjoying having my daughter home for the summer!
      I hope you are well too. Enjoy your weekend, Catherine! ❤

    So happy for Lucy’s perfect picnic. Just the sweetest outfit and sweater. Too hot here for outdoor stuff. Think it will be 95 today with over 100 the next couple of days. Bring on some lemonade. Please tell Lucy that she should open up a lemonade stand. I’m sure she would sell out quickly.

      Thank you, Joy! We’ve been having quite a few days in the low 90s, and that’s felt hot. Poor you!
      I mentioned a lemonade stand to Lucy. She thought it sounded like a lot of fun. Hmm, I wonder what she would do with her income from selling lemonade.

      You are definitely invited to the picnic, Terri. Lucy doesn’t care what you wear. She is used to seeing me in yoga pants or shorts and a tank top–with a ratty sweater if it’s cool. Anything would be an improvement on what her “mom” looks like everyday. I hope you have a great weekend, Terri! ❤
