Oy! I got steamrolled in January. I started off strong but then THE blizzard of the century hit us! Really! Did I ever mention I grew up in sunny California? What that meant is that my kids got a second Winter Vacation. Between the snow days, the teacher workdays that were already scheduled, some holiday and weekends they had 14 days off. I was ready to snow shoe out of here!
Of course that doesn't mean I didn't sew. I sewed and sewed and sewed, just to be able to hide away from the madness. But it does mean that I didn't do any sewing that involved thought. With kids busting in all day- mine, their friends, random neighborhood kids!- needing food, water, dry clothes, and whatever else children need, I only sewed things that were quick and easy.
Each of the children got a Hey June Hatteras Hoodie. This one is for the oldest, he got the hoodie version. The girl child ended up with 3 of view B, one was too small so its gone and the other two are in rotation but for some reason I didn't photograph them. The little one got 3 also but without hoods. And then I used the Field Research pants pattern to make a pair of flannel lined pants for both the younger ones.
And here it is almost the end of February!!! I ended and began January with some pattern testing that I really should blog about. Both patterns are adorable. I also tested another pattern in February and sewed random bits of things. Which brings me to my latest adventure.
I love having a plan with my sewing but seem to seldom actually do it! I'm finishing off February with a bang- hopefully. I'm going to join my fellow sewers on the Capsule Facebook page in a quick capsule sew along. Yeah! We're not all sewing the same things but the challenge was to come up with a quick sew capsule AND sew it. Since I've gone on long enough here, I'll write up a post all about my plan tomorrow.
