I am so ready for Spring

These little cuties came out later than the others this year. The tulips are on their way now too. I'm trying to hold myself back from planting anything new right now since it's still kinda cold, but it's so hard! This year we're planning on developing our front yard area - defining different areas, planting trees, new walkways, etc. We'll see how far we get!

So instead of planting, I've been busy sewing spring things! This is the first shirt I've ever sewn for myself - not too bad. I've worn it once, but had to have a sweater on the whole day!

I've also been making skirts - no hope of wearing them unless I want to freeze! So here's the vintage tablecloth skirt I made. It has a zipper in the back. I also made a wrap skirt and have started wrap skirts for my daughters. I'll post those photos when I've finished.

It's pretty addicting to keep making more clothes - especially when they are simple patterns. So I'm telling myself to take a break so I can work on other things . . . like painting! My creativity started blossoming a few years ago when I realized how much I enjoy and appreciate watercolor. But through that process, I've also realized how I use my creativity every day!

Great job! I love the skirt and the top. I get the bug to sew clothes in the spring too.
