Wednesday Weekly #79

Happy Wednesday! I am feeling much better this week and my sew-jo is back in full swing. I got it flowing again after cutting out my m6696 pattern that I have been meaning to sew for about two years. It felt so good to finally get going on this project and I am feeling the excitement for spring and summer sewing! I always get a little over ambitious at the start of the season so I am trying to focus on a few key items this time. Have you started to plan your spring/summer sewing?

  1. I hear you on the change-of-season sewing feelings. I want to sew everything! Thankfully my 2017 Make Nine plans are keeping me (mostly, sort of) grounded. I’m excited for Me-Made-May this year and Sew Sew Def. The magazine looks like it will be great. Thanks for another great roundup!
