Easter Best

Momentum is a funny thing; sometimes you’re on a roll and then…BAM!  Stopped.  Stuck in the mud.  Or your head.  Or whatever.  I swear I posted a week or two ago last, but it has been almost THREE!  Such a lollygagger.  I haven’t gotten a ton of sewing done in that time, but I still have many garments to photograph and blog from February and March plus some oldies for Throwback Thursday.

That said, life has been a little busy, and I’ll use that as my excuse.  We’re currently looking for a bigger home and readying our own house for sale.  The real estate market here (and many places, per the many nationwide articles I’ve read) is pretty much insane at the moment:  so little inventory, such high prices, very much a seller’s market.  It’ll bode well when it comes time for us to sell our sweet little starter home, but this end is just a tad frustrating.  We’ve been looking since late February and we are persisting because quickly selling our home is very attractive with a toddler around.

Speaking of a toddlers, I managed to make Cheeks some stuff for Easter.  :D  All three pieces are part of McCall’s 6873.

We Come From the Land of Cheese – July 4th Edition

First off, Happy Independence Day to all of my ‘Merican friends!  Happy Birthday, America!

Happy Monday to everyone else.  :)

Here in Wisconsin, Mr. 5, Cheeks and I celebrated the 4th by going to a cookout thrown by my Ma and Pa (thanks to my dad for taking these photos of our threesome).

We also celebrated in another way…
