Fantasizing and daydreaming about upcoming projects is a favorite pastime of mine. Here I share what’s been on my mind lately, hoping to make these come to reality!

1. Being more intentional about learning with my girls. This week, I received More Story Stretchers and Story Stretchers for Infants, Toddlers, and Twos, which I am hoping to begin on Monday. Now, the trick will be to conduct two craft activities with two children at the same time…

2. Minoru sewalong! Tasia is wonderful and this sewalong has been incredibly fun.

3. Planning a Spring wardrobe. Inspiration here, here, and here. What are, really, the basics in a spring wardrobe? Growing up in a place where the seasons were practically nonexistent, seasonality is a concept that both fascinates and bewilders me. I’m having fun exploring all the options.

4. Developing your personal style. Loved this post by Sarai of Colette Patterns, this one by the Cottage Mama, and this one by the talented Kristin, from Skirt as Top. Great thoughts!

5. Loving these patterns: Tee, Made by Rae, and this Tunic, by Shwin & Shwin, and Sweet Little Dress, by Leila and Ben. Gorgeous all!

Lastly, I’ve been wondering if I’m brave enough to smock an Easter dress. Or two.

Have a good weekend, all!

Amidst the chaos of getting our new house organized and moving boxes unpacked, I have had the most fun sewing my Minoru Jacket along with the wonderful Tasia from Sewaholic . I love this sew-along! I feel like I am learning so very much through the whole process. Thank you, Tasia!

I made these lovely felt flowers, following this awesome tutorial from Jess at Craftiness is Not Optional. The only thing I made differently was adding a little tulle to the back, since it matched my girls’ Christmas dresses. Thanks, Jess, the tutorial was fabulous!
