It’s coooooold outside, and six inches or so of snow fell overnight here in Dallas. We’re feeling a little cooped up inside since sleet and ice-covered roads from earlier in the week have kept us from being out and about. We’re doing our best to make the best of it, though.
Since schools and businesses are closed, Ray gets to spend his birthday home with the family. Jamie and I made chocolate chip banana muffins this morning while everyone else slept in a little.
I do have a few projects on my cutting table, though. Celebrate the Boy starts at Made-by-Rae on February 15th, and I’m so excited that Rae has invited me to share a free pattern/tutorial on March 11 to go with my recently release Undercover Bottoms Boxer Briefs pattern. It’ll be something that I think you’ll love. It’s a perfect clothing item for layering in the winter and keeping cool and comfy during the summer.
I also have plans for an All-About-Knits Week starting on February 14th. Be sure to drop in and read while I share some of my knowledge of knit fabrics and tips for working with them.
My testers are just about finished with the coverall and romper pattern. I just have to do a few final tweaks, and I have to decide on a name. It should be ready to sale by the end of next week.
Lastly, in case you missed it, my New Year’s resolutions were published on the last page of the Spring Stitch magazine:
I’m really excited about sewing a whole season’s wardrobe for Charlie and Jamie. I’m thinking of shooting for a summer wardrobe. (Planning now while there’s six inches of snow on the ground seems a little odd, but summer will be here in no time!) I was also thinking that it might be fun to have you join me. Maybe a One Wardrobe for One Season Challenge? Anyone interested?
Oh, and before I forget to remind you, Stitch Giveaway #2 ends on Tuesday night, so there’s still time to enter!
