March in Review...

Sewing:

It was a slow start earlier in the month as I continued to feel under the weather. Despite this I did manage to get some sewing done. I finished the cape which I'm so proud of, it was quite the journey and I learned techniques that I longed to learn. It has to be one of the most rewarding sewing projects I've made. I didn't do any Lent sewing projects this year since I wasn't feeling all that well and wasn't coming home from work with a whole lot of extra energy especially after working overtime as well. It was nice to end the month with another lay-off to catch my breath and finally spend some time with the sewing machines.



RTW Fast:

Okay, I stumbled on my RTW fast journey this month. Sweaters have always been my downfall when it comes to RTW fasting. And this is where I stumbled this month, a cotton knit wrap and a cotton/cashmere cardigan. Yes, I could sew these items but I wouldn't have found similar fabric.

  1. A cotton cashmere blend sounds amazing! I haven't been doing much sewing lately but hoping to get back on the horse, you definitely got me beat!

    1. I should admit that most of the work on the cape was done in February, I only finished it in March.
