Wednesday Weekly #148

Happy Wednesday! This week has been jam-packed with new patterns and I feel like a kid in a candy store! I also really want to participate in #sewfrosting, but I still haven’t decided what to make. I am going to keep working on my basic grey Yates Coat and hope that I think of something fancy to go under it!
