Must Be Big Sleeves

I'm haphazardly chiseling away on my Valentine's themed outfit for Project Run and Play, thus the silence here.  The aforementioned project had me out looking for the perfect shade enamel which quest utterly failed at the craft store, so I bought 3 almost-the-right-color bottles, hoping to mix and come up with what I really wanted. [pout] Then, I walked through those sliding glass doors at the pharmacy, Clover's hand in mine when it seemed a light from above shone and the Hallelujah chorus sang as I beheld Revlon's display with Espresso 840.  It is perfect.  I can't wait to show you the results.

Meanwhile, I am giddy inside about what's up my sleeve for March, as in THE WHOLE MONTH!  Yes, I meant to shout.  It feels like Christmas Eve!  Do you wait to open your presents, or are you the kind who always peeks just a little to ease that sense of building, bursting excitement a bit, you know, so you can sleep come evening with a smug smile on your face?  I'm not telling which kind of person I am.  Ryan loves me anyway. 

So, even if it's calm and quiet in this space, just know there is goodness brewing and baking.  Like a phenomenal soup, it will be worth the wait.


  1. Hi! Just wanted to pop in and say thanks so much for sharing! I'm a new reader and I'm enjoying your blog and finding lots of inspiration here. Can't wait for March!

    Dill--Are we related? I've never met another Dill in my life! Thank you for your encouragement, but I can't help but worry. I think there might be a perfectionist lurking inside me when it comes to sewing...regardless, thank you for the kind words.

    Dad--like father like daughter!

  7. Related? Oh how I wish!

    Dill is part of my very long name haha... My friends' tongues usually twisted when they say my name so they shorten it to 'Dill'.

    Anyways, I can't wait for March too!

    Looking forward to this weekend and seeing your newest creation!

  12. What in the world are you planning???? You can't do this to us!

  13. Oh I can't wait to see what you have hidden up your sleeves! I love your creations and you have inspired me to lean to sew better and not be afraid to try something new.
