Sorry I've been neglecting this blog. I've been gone forever but haven't actually abandoned it. I hope anyone who might still read this is doing well.

My niece was born in December. She turned 3 months today :)

I went shopping and ended up picking up some more Little Lisette fabric since it was in the Red Tag section. I loved the gingham so much that I bought the 50" that were left on the bolt and I've been lusting after the flowers so I bought some of those before they disappeared from my store. I bought some silk dupioni for rolled flowers too. I already bought some in blue last month but wanted more than one color to play with before I got started.

I don't know what my obsession with little girl dresses is but it struck again. I bought McCall's M6388 in sizes 2-8. They were on sale at JoAnn Fabric for$1.99. I liked the yoke and wanted to try something new. I hope I didn't make a mistake. I need to make a jumper for the kindergartener I homeschool. She sometimes needs something to cover the gap between her shirt and pants when she leans over to do her work.

It's been unseasonably warm lately. I still bought a pair of winter boots that were on sale at DSW though. I've been on the look out for a pair for the last two winters. This winter was warm but the next one might not be and I'd like to be prepared.

A Home Goods store recently opened up nearby. My mother and I went in to check it out and ended up buying a few things. I got a small Le Creuset pan for cheap and some child-sized hangers. I plan on making small portions of apple crisp or macaroni and cheese.
