Happy Wednesday! I am feeling much better this week and my sew-jo is back in full swing. I got it flowing again after cutting out my m6696 pattern that I have been meaning to sew for about two years. It felt so good to finally get going on this project and I am feeling the excitement for spring and summer sewing! I always get a little over ambitious at the start of the season so I am trying to focus on a few key items this time. Have you started to plan your spring/summer sewing?

Thankyou for linking to my Granville skirt – its a perfect spring pattern – quick and easy to sew!


Thank you so much for including my Archer, Helen! Looking forward to seeing your posts for Me Made May.

I hear you on the change-of-season sewing feelings. I want to sew everything! Thankfully my 2017 Make Nine plans are keeping me (mostly, sort of) grounded. I’m excited for Me-Made-May this year and Sew Sew Def. The magazine looks like it will be great. Thanks for another great roundup!

Wow! Thanks for the feature!
Make the Helga!!

Hi! Thanks for mentioning my Pilvi Coat! I wear it all the time. I love it.
