it's still winter, darnit.

I know, I haven't updated this spot in weeks! It's been busy around here. I think I can officially say that February is my busiest month. Seriously, everyone wants me to sew something or alter something for them all at the same time! I'm not complaining! I'm really grateful I have a lot of work, but I admit there was a moment a few weeks ago when I broke down because I was feeling totally overwhelmed. But I actually think that the break-down helped, because I started thinking about how un-productive I had been. I'm feeling a lot better about my schedule these days and I'm putting together a budget. (Did I mention I finished my taxes and I got a REFUND?!!!!! This never happens. NEVER.) PLUS, I am starting some new clothing patterns and hope to have some made for spring/summer. I've got about a trillion ideas up my sleeve with absolutely no time for any of them. This seems to happen a lot... About my clothing "line" or whatever you want to call it, I'm basically just going to make clothing I would wear. So it might not all coordinate, but we'll see. Maybe it will! I'm getting lots of inspiration from past collections of jackson, johnston & roe (i am jealous they came up with that name and I didn't...I love it!). I am not crazy about their current collection, except I love those button-crotch shirts (or whatever they call them). I have a 1940's pattern for a similar shirt and it sounds like a super nifty idea!

Okay, times up, I have to get to work. Have a great Wednesday! Hopefully I will post again before spring! Also, I have a cinnamon roll recipe I've been meaning to share... One of these days I'll get around to that too.
