Wind chills of minus forty and extreme cold warning cold.
Perfect weather to stay indoor and sew.
Or maybe test out the winter coat kind of cold.
I'm relieved to report the winter coat held up in the extreme cold.
It's all about dressing in layers and that is exactly what is built into the coat. That extra layer of micro-fleece did the trick.
Not that I was looking to hang out in the cold for too long.
There's sewing to do.
Project cut out and ready to go and I froze.
It must be the cold.
I just couldn't get into it.
I mended a skirt. Motivated by Suzanne Shore's article "Fix a too-tight waistband" in the new March 2019 issue of Threads.
The skirt fits better but I can't say I'm feeling it.
Pattern Review's first round for the 2019 Sewing Bee is coming to an end and the entries are popping up on the webite. I'm not feeling the "living coral" cardigan theme.
Instagram news that a local fabric store is now carrying cork fabric was almost enough to get me out into the bitter cold. Almost.
And after all the procraftination was done, I am finally sewing.
Buried under a blanet for extra warmth.
Stay warm and happy sewing!
