It’s July! Summer Updates

I’ve been gone for a spell; ah, the ebb and flow which is my blogging.  I’m either on it and posting every week, or *poof* gone.  Well, we’ve been a bit busy since I last posted in June!

So, what’s up, Buttercup?

After three months of looking for a new house, we put in our fourth offer and it finally stuck!  FINALLY!  I’d say I’m probably most excited about this at the moment…

Amidst this craziness, I was lucky enough to be able to attend PR Weekend and got to meet and room with the delightful Meigan of Get My Stitch On.  <3

Talk about a room with a view!

April Ruminations, May Plans

Been a bit of a quiet blogging month, but since I actually set some goals for once, thought it would be nice to follow up!  To recap, here’s what I was hoping to accomplish in April:

  • Sewaholic Minoru
  • 2 Oliver + S Bucket Hats for Cheeks
  • Jalie Cora running tights
  • McCall’s 6873 for Cheeks
  • Simplicity 8291
  • Unblogged plan:  Blue Calla Iris for my mom’s birthday gift

While writing that post, these didn’t seem like THAT much work, but looking at it now:  bahaha…like I was going to get all of that done.

So, how many did I finish?

April Plans

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 haven’t done a planning post since February (1 2), so thought it was high time!  The new goal is to post a little something every month, but we’ll see how it goes.

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 Retreat

This past weekend, and the awesome sewing retreat, came and went so quickly.  I didn’t get a lot of photos because I was busy sewing, but thought I’d write an update on how the event went and report on what I was able to finish!

I’m pretty sure I packed up my whole damn sewing room.  I even took my sewing chair, as was suggested by my sister in law.  This is what 3 machines that sew in some way, plus half a sewing room, look like in a hatchback:

See that last photo?  That’s my personal stuff for the weekend.  The rest was allllll for sewing.

February Plans: Part Two

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!

UFO Contest 2017

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.
