In Sewing News Today...

Simplicity released their Early Spring pattern line last week, and McCall's dropped their Early Spring pattern line yesterday.  

It's all about rompers, shirtdresses and slits. 

I can't wrap my head around the thought of an Early Spring pattern line.  This is my current reality:  
A period of very cold wind chills is expected.

Overnight low temperatures will drop to near minus 30 tonight. Combined with winds of 10 km/h, extreme wind chill values of minus 40 are expected. Wind chill values will moderate Saturday. However, a longer duration cold spell looks to impact Manitoba starting early next week.
Risks are greater for young children, older adults, people with chronic illnesses, people working or exercising outdoors, and those without proper shelter.

Cover up. Frostbite can develop within minutes on exposed skin, especially with wind chill.

Extreme cold warnings are issued when very cold temperatures or wind chill creates an elevated risk to health such as frost bite and hypothermia.
There was no plug available at work to plug in the car so I took the bus.

Actually three buses.

In the cold.

I can't imagine spring when it's this cold.

Never mind an Early Spring Pattern line.

This is the only sewing pattern that has captivated my thoughts.

Needless to say, it will be a stay indoors and sew kind of weekend.

I can't bring myself to venture out in the cold.

And I'm on a "no more pattern" diet.

I'll just have to borrow the idea from the Kwik Sew pattern and make my own full-back length heating pad to warm myself up.

Spring sewing will have to wait.

Need to get through this season first.

Happy Sewing!  


  1. It is really cold here in Saskatchewan as well. I have been staying in and working on cutting scraps to make a rug.

    God bless.

    1. Yup, I love the beauty of this season but I can't handle the extreme cold like I used to back-in-the-day. It's a Vicks, chicken soup and dreaming about the next project kind of weekend. Stay warm and God bless.
