If I think it,


will spring come? I'm ready for winter to be over. I just want warm weather. My mind can't help but think of springy clothes. This shirt may be a little premature (with highs of 29 today and blustery tree-limb-breaking winds), but I couldn't stop myself.

Last week I ran into the fabric store, for one thing, when Spenser and I spied this fun cherry print. You know how I feel about cherry fabric. Spenser screamed, "Mommy, I love it!" so I knew it had to come home with us. And I knew it would be a shirt, but there are too many options. I decided to go with Simplicity 4206. I have only made this pattern into dresses, so it was my first attempt at the shirt. I lengthened the shirt a bit, but it looks wide, but we'll see once she wears it.

Are you thinking what I'm thinking? Mama needs a new cherry shirt.

I AM thinking what you're thinking, go for it!!!

Oh, last night when we were driving home it was very cold, I think it was -17 C. I asked Joe what that was in F and we changed the display to F. It was ZERO! PLUS the wind chill. Holy cow it's cold here right now!

I agree that Mama needs a cherry shirt. Is that fabric broderie anglaise?
