How I miss summer!

Woke up bright and early this morning to a lovely sixteen degrees below zero (about 3 °F). Just realized that one big reason for not sewing is that I just want to make garments for warmer weather. I dream about walking around in shorts like in this photo below, from last summer.

There are so many lovely ideas for dresses, skirts, cute little tops, nice silky pants in my head... Wonder what I should do to get back on track seasonwise? I'm quite likely to have at least another 8 weeks of winter. Maybe I should sort through my stash, placing all warmer fabrics on top so I see those everytime I open the drawers and cabinets? (Instead of seeing my silks, organzas, lightweight flower patterned cottons and so on... Oh misery!)


  1. I'm with you! I want summer or even spring soon!!!

  2. It's difficult to sew spring clothes when it is cold outside. All the new season patterns are out but I'm still in winter mode.
