It's coming...I know it is. I can feel it in the air. Things are stirring and changing. It's still light when I leave work in the evenings and it's light at 6:30 am when I'm walking to the bus stop. Yes, it's coming! It doesn't help that every magazine and every clothing website are offering up spring duds, too!
So, I'm changing over...thinking less about winter and more about the rebirth - SPRING! I've decided to sew a couple of things still remaining on my fall/winter list. They are crying out to be made and in all actuality it won't be warm here for at least another six weeks...so these garments can be sewn and worn. But yesterday morning on the way to work, I broke down and wrote a preliminary list of items I want to sew for spring.
I will use March to finish off the 3 or 4 items remaining and will start April sewing spring. I've also made a goal for the months of April & May to mostly use the new spring patterns I've recently acquired. I think I will use my TNT patterns as "slopers" for the new patterns because I've grown a little tired of them since they've been in heavy rotation this fall/winter season. Spring is about rebirth and new growth and this season I want the challenge of making some of the newer patterns work for me.
I guess you should stay tuned to see what happens! *LOL* I'm off to clear off my sewing table...and finish up the skirt that's been laying there. Lately, I've had a real skirt thing going on so expect to see a couple more in the next few posts...one even involving a new pattern!
Somehow I ended up with this pattern in a size 8-10-12-14.
My daughter already has a copy of the pattern so if you don't own it and would like it ~ leave a comment including your email address. I'm going to be strict about the email addy, no email address in the post and you won't be considered to win the pattern. I will use the random generator to pick a number Monday evening and will mail it out next week - and I'm willing to ship internationally.
...as always, more later!
