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.
You guys! I have news. I vaguely alluded to said news previously…but here it is…
I have been a huge Fabric Mart fan girl for years now, so this is pretty exciting.
Here we are…second to last wardrobe item for Cheeks! You may recognize these from the Raglan Tee post. Here is his third pair of pants: Brindille & Twig’s 075: Streamline Pants*
If there’s something I love more than almost anything (except for Mr. 5, Mr. Cheeks and wine) it has to be ice cream. A day is not quite complete without it, yet it is one of the junk foods in my life that I am able to control myself with (candy and chips: Danger, Will Robinson!)
And these pants are just about as cute as that creamy confection is delicious: Brindille & Twig’s 074: Ice Cream Pants*
