Wow, 10 weeks into the year already, can you believe it?
If we were having coffee this morning, I would tell you that spring has finally started to arrive here! It’s 60 and sunny out my window this morning, with the promise of more beautiful weather next week. It’s about time!
If we were having coffee, I would tell you all about my sewing date with my friend Crystal this week! She had originally planned to stay only 4 nights, but ended up staying 7 nights instead. We had a great time and she made such amazing progress during the time she was here! She finished one garment — a darling little dress — and her second is almost done. I still had my home and work responsibilities during the day, but once the kids were in bed, we drank lots of wine, listened to music, and sewed, sewed, sewed!
If we were having coffee, I would also tell you that I now need to recover from my sewing date! I’m not used to drinking champagne on a nightly basis, and we went to bed pretty late. I may not even fire up my sewing machine at all tonight. Instead, I may just catch up on Elementary with my knitting and go to bed early!
If we were having coffee today, I would admit that I broke down and bought the new Deer & Doe pattern, Anemone, yesterday. I was totally sucked in by the high-waisted miniskirt option. I love miniskirts and want to add a few to my wardrobe. It may be counterintuitive that a mother of 3 still losing her baby weight wants to wear miniskirts, but I have nice legs, and they look good on me. And they make me look taller — I take whatever optical illusions I can get! I have some medium-weight brown chambray that would be perfect for this skirt.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I’m starting to get a little panicky that I haven’t started on the kids’ outfits for our good friend’s wedding at the end of April. That sounds like a long way away, but there’s only 6 weeks left until we leave! N is going to be the flower girl, and just the other day she asked me if J could be ring bearer since their original ring bearer is terrified at the idea of walking down the aisle. That means both of their outfits have to get done before we leave for California. And there’s my dress to make as well. I need to knock these out!
I know I’ve been rambling a lot on here lately. With longer days, warmer weather, and some SUN, I hope to have one or two sewing posts for you all next week.
If we were having coffee, what would you tell me?
