March in Review...

Sewing

Most of my time earlier this month was spent working on the spring coat. Wait, I should correct myself here.  Most of my time this month was spent with my seam ripper and taking out stitches on my spring coat. In an attempt to keep my spirits up, I stitched up a few simple projects.  


Not bad for a month worth of sewing that started off where I felt under the weather and ended wearing a wrist brace.  

RTW Fast

I fell off the wagon again when I found a pair of exercise pants that fit. I have several patterns for exercise outfits but they are in sizes too small. That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it. I can admit that this year I'm a bad RTW faster. And I picked up some undies too.  

The Stats

I was also bad when it came to adding to my stash--both patterns and fabric. I have a lot of sewing to do if I'm going to put a dent in my list-of-things-to-do.
