Spring Shopping!

It feels odd talking about spring shopping with so much snow still out there right now. But you would never know it by the display windows around town.

I have this 100% orange linen still sitting in my fabric stash from last year. And I still would like to make this dress from Pattern Magic. I can't believe that it has been almost a year since I've wanted to make this. Where has the time gone?

Maybe this year I'll find the time to tackle this project? But for now, I've got to get back to sewing something for someone else.

Happy Sewing!
