Long time, no blog!

Hi all! Sorry I have been away so long. The past few weeks have been filled to the rafters with academic ickiness. But Fall finals are over and I am officially on Christmas break!! I haven't had any time to even think about sewing... until now! I have a few things lined up for the upcoming weeks:

-I just cut out the pieces to make a little red herringbone wool dress, it will be my first! Hopefully tomorrow afternoon I can get started constructing it.

-I am finishing some warm-woolies for Kris for Christmas (even though I have been slowing making them since Halloween hehe).

-Some small curtains are in order for a friend, so those should be a breeze.

-I would like to make some warm lambswool-lined mittens, but we will see how much time I have! I know the end of break is going to come too soon, as always.

-I am also planning on finishing these chairs from my December first post. My wonderful father pulled out all of the old staples and fabric so they would be ready to go when I got home. Thoughtful, right?

I also pre-ordered 2 lovely colette patterns that I am anxiously awaiting the arrival of in the mail:

The Sencha Blouse

And the Rooibos Dress

For today, I am feeling lazy and might work on the warm-woolies a bit, but I just need a little time to do absolutely nothing after a hellacious semester. So stay tuned as I post these finished projects in the next couple of weeks! Happy Holidays!
