March in Boston is such a cruel month. The first whiff of spring arrives. You start to feel lighter and happier, then – bam! Winter sneaks up behind you and smacks you in the head with a 2X4 just to keep you from getting complacent. And there you have the forecast for the Boston area this week. Maybe I’ll take the dog for a long walk tonight before the weather changes.
That leaves me in a quandary about what to sew next. I’m still finishing the Chanel jacket. That’s all down to the hand stitching and trim now. I’m working on it in the evenings, but there isn’t much to show or blog about until it’s ready to be trimmed.

I like the tab sleeves for spring. I have some cute striped shirting that has been aging in my stash for a while. I think I’ll use that. It’s orange and white – orange seems to be my color for transition/spring this year. Well, that gives me a hobby. I think I’ll start on the muslin after dinner.
