Lent Day 21

Last week was a wonky week for me – between getting back from the DC trip to the snow on Friday – it was just weird and disjointed. In the midst of all I didn’t feel super motivated either in dressing or taking photos, so all I have for Lent proof is these two. Don’t worry, you’re not missing anything.

Reaching

My seedlings are doing well. Almost everything has a little seedling now (except the mint). Up until a few days ago, though there wasn’t a hint of activity on my peppers or tomatoes. The soil was too cool, methinks. Then while driving, Mr. Cleaver mentioned that the despite the cool weather, the sun made the car really warm. Only in Maine, he said, do you drive around with the window cracked in 38 degree weather.

Reaching

His comment gave me an epiphany, and immediately when we got home, I put my tomato seeds under my clear glass cake dome, and voila! within a day seedlings!

Beignet Fabric & Lining

My other big triumph of the week was finally cutting out my Beignet skirt yesterday (the blue twill is the shell, the polka dot is the happy happy lining).

I spent some quality time in JoAnn’s yesterday and picked up two patterns, some notions, the lining fabric and fabric for two more projects – including the pattern and material for a new casual skirt. I’m putting my plans for pants on hold and as soon as I finish the Beignet, I’ll dive into that skirt pattern, because really, the denim skirt needs a break!!
