Just call me a big blog slacker right now! We have been so busy at the shop with the Quilt Minnesota Shop Hop going on that I have not had time for much of anything else. I did have some time this weekend for sewing, which felt really good for a change. The rest of my weekends in August are filled with a wedding picnic, girls weekend in Oronoco, MN for Gold Rush Days (only the BEST antiquing of the year) and a much needed vacation to our cabin in Canada with Mitchell and our close friends. Since the rest of my August is going to fly by I sewed most of the weekend, accomplishing some old projects and lots of little pants. For some reason I have been in love with Anna Maria's Quick Change Trousers pattern in her new book, Handmade Beginnings. Small people are no where on the horizon for me anytime soon, but I figured when I do get there I will be too busy to sew a whole wardrobe, so I'd better start now. Plus, I really am in love with some fabrics right now, so I'd better start sewing while they are still available. I picked some of those favorites for my collection of small pants, Quick Change Trousers if I may.
