February in Review...

Sewing:

Sewing has taken a hit this month as I was feeling under the weather with a stomach flu in the beginning of the month. And I'm ending the month by putting in longer hours at work and fighting a cold. It kind of puts a damper on any thoughts of sewing. Despite this, I was able to make hide many sewing bloopers within the few seams I sewed and came out with one completed project: a new shirt dress.

I'm currently working on a cape that is taking me much longer to complete than I anticipated it would take to make.


RTW Fast:

No ready-to-wear items made it into my wardrobe and I wasn't even been tempted. Woohoo!

Mind you feeling under the weather and all those pastel colours found in the retail landscape helped with the lack of temptation.
