While the outside temperature was still in the 40s, I decided to move forward with the seasons. I am going to be ready for spring when it arrives. I will take more pictures of the springing blossoms and track how fast that pussywillow grows in the pond. Also, I am going to have clothes ready, of course.
As I clean my closets of old shoes and unworn clothes, I dream of things to fill the fortunate one's closet. Sewing, of course.
I saw this fabric on sale at J.Caroline's near empty spot and bought a yard and challenged myself to do something useful with it. Now, you should know that sitting pretty is useful... I went to a pattern that I have learned to love, that Kwik Sew dress.
It is not spring yet, so, here is her seasonal segue.
The rosette is a birthday gift from Aunt Bird. Ain't it perty?
This skirt gives me dry-heaves:
I just made it 2 days ago and as I was editing the photo, I have thought of another skirt to make with the prints, look out for that.
It's almost spring break and I plan to make a raincoat for the child, I hope that goes well.
