I had an amazing productive weekend – maybe it’s all the sunshine and hints of spring.

Beignet muslin

On Saturday, while Mr. Cleaver watched March Madness, I went into my studio and whipped out a muslin for a Beignet skirt. I need to take in the two front seams (it’s kinda pinned in the photo), but other than that I found the pattern to fit really well. I have a sky blue twill in my stash I hope to make it from – I have less fabric than the pattern envelop calls for, so fingers crossed that all the pieces fit!

Starting my Seeds

Then, this morning we stopped by the open house at Skillins Greenhouse and picked up some seed starting supplies. I had already ordered my seeds a few weeks back from Johnny’s Selected Seeds and put them directly into my new seed flats. I won’t be able to put anything outside until mid April at the earliest, but it doesn’t hurt to plan ahead.

Now, onto the Lent.

If you’re thinking I missed a day there, you’re right – I never got a photo of Day #11. But if you guessed I wore the same denim skirt all last weekend, you’d be even more right.

Lent Day #12

On Day #12 I went to my closet and I just couldn’t bear the thought of wearing tights today, despite the cold. (Remember when I said the warm weather wouldn’t last? I woke up the next morning and it was snowing – how’s that for not lasting?) So instead of tights I threw on my hand-knit knee-highs and braved chilly knees (and mostly stayed indoors).
