We’re in West Michigan this weekend for a cousin’s wedding. Left Ann Arbor just in time to avoid Graduation Weekend Chaos, and then realized it is Tulip Time Insanity here in Holland. Next year: somewhere else.
beatrix: my newest pattern, Beatrix (you can see a version I’m working on, upper right), is in the works. We’re working very hard to get it done and get it done right. We’re finished with our second round of testing as of this week. You can see some great photos over at Cherie’s blog and more under the #beatrixpattern tag.
mmm15: I’m going to try to wear handmade this month as many days in a row as I can for me made may ’15. Never participated before, we’ll see how it goes. I certainly have enough handmade clothing to go for a month straight; the challenge seems more to be about getting a decent selfie more than anything else. Logging my ensembles over on The Gram.
baby update: dropped Hugo’s crib down to lowest setting and pulled up the rail now that he can reliably pull himself up, second tooth has appeared. Discovered he CAN crawl, but he’ll only crawl on our bed, not on the hardwood floors.
haircut: am feeling v. springy with a newly coifed head of hair, some teal extensions. This is my second time with color extensions (the first set was pink and much more subtle). I really like how you can just have them taken out when you’re sick of them. Cut off about 8″ of hair; it was nearly long enough to donate, but not quite.
watching: The Good Wife (very good), just finished Daredevil (enjoyed this quite a bit), the latest season of Girls (i love this show, but this season was a little meh), and some of The Americans (SO GOOD). I used to sew at night, now I watch TV. Must be the three kids thing.
pants: am reading Pants for Real People. I don’t have much to show for it yet, but I’ve decided that sewing pants for myself is on the agenda for this year (and FYI “pants” does not mean “knickers” here in the US; it means trousers).
