Happy April Fools Day! I met my sweet husband on this day 6 years ago…so glad we met for that blind date. <3 Happy Date-iversary, honey bunny!
I did way more blogging than sewing in March. And couch sleeping after Cheeks went to bed…lots of couch sleeping. Though, I did manage to finally get some work done on the Minoru I had planned to sew up at the February retreat.
The hope at this point is to get it done in early April…we’ll see how that goes! I originally cut it out in February knowing it would be a longer project and in hopes that I’d actually get to wear it this Spring. Cross your fingers for me!!!
Spring in Wisconsin technically started on March 20th just like everywhere else in the Northern hemisphere, but the weather doesn’t start agreeing with the idea until mid to late April…and then there’s a three to four week span before people start bitching about how hot it is. Thus my Minoru completion goal.
So, what else for April? Finishing my coat will definitely eat up quite a bit of time, so I’m not going to be overly optimistic about what else I’ll get done, plus I have some gift plans that I won’t be sharing until they’re done. :D Here’s what I’m hoping to accomplish:
Cheeks really needs a couple of these by May, so even though they’re boring to sew it’s time to just buckle down and get ’em done. Or, you know, just buy some. We’ll see.
The plan is to get my body moving again this Spring. I have been sedentary all Winter, and I could really use some long walks or slow jogs (because that’s about what I’m capable of…haaaaa…). Some fun leggings are always good motivation for me.
For Cheeks for Easter! I would really love to use this pattern (I’ve intended to previously)…but I still need to measure the pattern pieces to be sure it will be big enough for him. GASP. My baby is growing out of baby/toddler sizes! I’m not sure which pattern I’ll use if this one doesn’t work. Anyone have suggestions?
And if there’s time…
I cut this pattern out back in February, but had a really hard time figuring out the fabric I wanted to use. I think I finally have a combination in mind that will work well. Now that it’s getting more into Spring and Summer, I’m also contemplating whether I want sleeves or not, but am leaning toward altering the long (3/4? 7/8? it’s not really full length) sleeve into a half sleeve.
So…those are the plans for April, but you never know when some shiny new pattern or fabric will catch the eye and change the mind!
