some things

Feeling frazzled today.  Let's see if I can pick up some threads...

thing #1

Are you interested in a simple skirt sew-along?  Somebody asked nicely and it IS the right time of year for it, isn't it?  I'm thinking a mama skirt sewn in voile or jersey.  First I need to find out what Anna Maria Horner is releasing this spring and when.  Because I obviously need to make a skirt with that!

thing #2

Oh me, oh my just 2 weeks of school left, not counting spring break!  I do so love our August - April schedule.  Spring always beckons us out!  And what a year it's been.  We've settled into such a comfortable groove.  I'll have to share some thoughts on that soon.  Meanwhile, registration for Homeschool Handmade will open next Wednesday, April 9th.  It'll run online April 21-25th.  If you're considering homeschool for someday or soon, this one's for you!

that dress

thing #3

I am still working on That Dress.  Actually, it's almost done.  I think?  I need to make some adjustments in the sleeve length so that it'll fit in the bodice.  With the weather warming maybe that'll be the push I need to finish her up?  Don't know.  I may be getting some sort of sick pleasure over not finishing... 

thing #4

Today is the last day to add your mosaic to the Ethereal mosaic contest.  Voting opens tomorrow! 

Ok, don't forget to tell me your thoughts on a skirt sew-along.  Thanks, peoples.  You're the best!


  1. I would love to do a "skirt-along!" In fact, just this week I was thinking how tired my spring / summer skirt situation has become. All solid colors: white, black, sky blue, hot pink, more black...blah. I need something fresh and fun, with an age-appropriate print. Voile sounds lovely (mine are all currently cotton and linen, some slightly and embarrassingly pill-y). Yes, it's time. And I'd be thrilled if I could do it along with you :)

  2. I could definitely go for a simple skirt sew along. I keep thinking if I make enough springy and summery items, that maybe winter will really end!

  3. Oh, yes! A skirt sew-a-long is a wonderful idea!
    I've been planning to start sewing some of my clothes; a simple skirt would be a good start.

  4. I learned ruffles 2 weeks ago. I guess I am ready to play with elastic...
    Count me in!

  5. I'm in! I've been wanting to make a skirt and it'd be good to a little selfish sewing. Lead the way!

  6. Yes, please!!! I want to learn to sew for myself so this would be the perfect push to getting started :)

  7. Definitely in! I made one of these a few years ago. Time for is sooo comfy and pretty.

  8. YES! a skirt along would be great!

  9. I could get behind a skirt sew along. I want to try sewing clothing but I'm too chicken to try alone...

  10. Oh a sewing skirt along, sew skirt the issue a-long ? ;) , would be lovely! I even have some voile neatly folded just waiting for this!

  11. I would love a skirt sew along! Of course, I'm still finishing my penny patch, but that's neither here nor there. :) I'm always looking to gain new skills (and a new skirt).
