I've been busy catching up on all my spring 'chores' around the house and studio; sewing, mending, cleaning, washing, gardening... it's no wonder I love this season, that looks like a list of all my favorite things Anyone with me? Or does that sound like a nightmare?

Three variations on our chickadee bag, almost done!
Progress on bags: Making pockets!
Looking at these, I wonder how is it that no one has managed to make fanny packs ‘cool’.
(I welcome you to prove me wrong!)
Getting ready for my trip! Sewed up a little toiletry travel bag in a red denim cotton - and when I get back, I think this will be perfect for my travel sewing kit! For some reason these fabrics make me think of things I have from my mom’s childhood - clothes that she sewed for her Ginger doll and teddy, perhaps.
This was a fun pattern to work with - for those of you that sew, if you want to give it a try the pattern is in Heather Ross’s ‘Weekend Sewing’ Book. (I added the little handle).
Finally found the perfect fabric for the other side of my quilt!
Did a little tour of antique/vintage shops in Windham and Westbrook yesterday, and I think it was a successful one! 4 yards of this vintage rose floral… and two other prints I’m excited to play around with…
I’m thinking short shorts with the boy fabric (I hope I have enough, I promised Ryan I’d make him something with this one)… and a simple loose blouse with the grey heels fabric (this one almost feels like silk?). Excited to work on some personal projects! I’ve been waiting for the right fabrics to inspire me.
Bag number two in the works! Unfortunately, I can’t finish either one until I find some good handles. I’m thinking thin leather straps.
(Any sourcing suggestions welcome, if you know of somewhere!)
