First I went on a glorious and overdue trip to Florida to visit my family. I got to spend time with the mouse, not to mention sunshine, and it was wonderful.
When I got home, I promptly came down with The Epic Cold of 2014. I was miserable for another week. Like, not a few crappy days and a few not great days, but I mean a full week of super craptacular days. It wasn't fun. I'm still coughing up a lung. Being on the mend is exhausting, and I can't say I've wanted to do much besides lay on my couch.
Finally we reach today. I have recovered some energy and my brain has cleared enough that I can function again! However, there is another issue on the horizon. Due to personal adventures coming up this year, I am cutting back on selfish sewing. I am looking for projects to do for other people and have offered my services out to Facebook friends and family. I have a couple bites, so hopefully something will come of those!
In the meantime, I still have a Coco on my to-do list. I have the pattern, fabric, and even thread. I just need to get around to making it. I'm basically copying the gorgeous aqua funnel neck version that Tilly models. So pretty! Retro! Yay!!
Also, now that Spring is around the corner I can finally start to think about making my Jasmine top again. Last summer I bought pretty turquoise with white polka dot fabric from Gertie's Etsy shop and a nice white cotton for the contrast pieces. I love the design but honestly I'm a little nervous that once I make it I will never wear it. I'm anxious that it won't fit me properly. I guess that's the point of sewing and fitting. I should probably make a muslin first to check the fit. Yeah. That would be wise.
My mom and I on the monorail, on our way to the Magic Kingdom!
