This week's weather took its cue from this weekend; except for some rain this morning, it's been sunny and in the SIXTIES for the past two days. This winter has been the most forgiving in my five years in New England, and though I'm not quite clawing at the walls begging for spring, I'll never turn down a beautiful day and the absence of a coat.
I also decided to slow my horses and turn my dress into a skirt since it wasn't really working out. I have two new fabrics that are destined for dresses, so I want to go to Sew Low Discount Fabrics to see if I can find a great pattern. I'm so scared of using patterns, but I'll never learn unless I dive in. And even though I feel like I took a step backward--and wasted a lot of thread and time being stubborn--sewing my own skirt was still on my 26 before 26 list. Real winners know when to quit. And start over. And, you know, from the beginning rather than closer to the end where I'd much rather be.
