Keep Calm Craft On {crafting on}

The act of creating, in one form or another, preserves my sanity amongst the chaos of life. This explains why I always have more than one project going at a time as well as why my housework tends to fall behind. I enjoy seeing what others are working on and keeping calm with, too. What are you creating? What is keeping you going? Snap a picture or two and share it with the rest of us by leaving your link below.

destined to become curtains KCCO

I am on quite a roll with sewing. While searching for fabric online I had a serendipitous discovery - fabric from the same line as these curtains on clearance (only $4 a panel!!) I could not believe my fortune. Perfect for making into curtains for my studio space. They will surely brighten the place up!

My AMH pattern arrived and I set to work on some shorts for Little L straight away. The first pair (my trial pair) is just waiting for me to hem and the second pair is cut out and ready to sew. It took me a long time to actually cut into that Heather Ross fabric you see above. As silly as it sounds, I love it so, and it has long since been out of print so I was afraid to take scissors to it and mess it up. Fingers crossed it all ends well. Little L can't wait for his "bug van shorts".

Over the weekend I purchased the geranium dress pattern (thanks to Kyrie) and I am dying to use it!!  I have some specific fabric in mind to make the girls a set of dresses but I might have to dig into my stash and see if I have enough to test the pattern out while I wait. I just can't ever have idle hands. I haven't done this much sewing in ages. I am loving every minute of it. Spring, please don't ever end!                                 

What are you working on?! Happy creating!
