Still working on blogging things from the February sewing retreat! This is the last of what I made for me, but there are a few Summery items for Cheeks left. I’m really workin’ on stretchin’ this all out!
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.
I shared my selfish sewing plans for the UFO retreat I’m attending, and now here are my unselfish sewing plans (minus a few which are surprises).
Speaking of UFOs: today’s the last day to vote in the PR UFO contest. I would be over the moon if you’d consider voting for my Christmas Quilt!
And now for the rest of my sewing plans…first up, what I plan to make for my sweet boy: CHEEKS! He’s good clothing-wise for the rest of winter and Wisconsin spring (which is all of like 3 weeks long), but needs some more stuff for Summer.
Here are my planned makes! Links to fabric included, if they are still available.
We keep our house pretty cold in the Winter, because we’re cheap asses. Around 65 while we’re awake, and 59 while we’re sleeping. But at times 65 still feels chilly, and poor Cheeks’s hands get pretty cold sometimes. We had been putting sweatshirts on him…
Then I saw Simplicity 8224 and it was decided: he needs a robe.
I think that we can all agree that animal ears automatically make baby and toddler clothes cuter. Yes? YES!
