Knock, Knock

When I declared that March Is Mine, I had no idea that I would be talking about health and not sewing projects. For two weeks I was pretty ill; then my hips went out again (making it very painful to stay upright and walking).

Retro pink seersucker from my own toddlerhood.

It hasn't been all bad, though. My good news is that my brain fog is clearing, thanks to paying more attention to nutrition. I've lost almost 25 pounds since Valentine's Day.

I don't know where this came from but I love it! The little black splotches are music notes.
I managed to follow a quick tutorial from The Petite Sewist. Using the above displayed fabric and a little ric-rac.....

Trying to get two kids to cooperate for a photo is liking trying to ride a pig - only great in theory. The Pixie is stretched to her limit.
I whipped up a version of the Roses Are Red retro apron. I may make a couple more. I may alter the pattern now that I've made it once. I do this with recipes, too: follow the directions once and then deviate every time thereafter.

I also have plans to slowly work on Easter dresses this week (spring break!). My goal is to use only stash for these new girly confections. I also drew up a new headband pattern for myself. Perhaps it will make it into tutorial form.

The latest installment for Grandparent Eye Candy Day.

The flashlight was absolutely necessary - they were hunting bears.
The posts might be sparse for a few weeks....the Husband has given me a new hobby to pursue between fits of sewing, spurts of housecleaning, and round after round of much needed cuddling.

I get to pack up our house to move.


  1. Sweet little apron. Your models are very cute! My kids love getting in on the photos too - not sure if it's my projects or more likely the camera that draws them!

    Hope that you are feeling better soon!

  2. Love the apron!
    We moved 4 times in 3 years and my oldest was 3 the last time.
    I'm very glad that we have been in our house for nearly 12 years because I don't like packing and unpacking.
    I hope the girls didn't find any bears.....


Your encouragement means so much! Thank you for commenting.
