This weekend we are having our first camping trip of the season. Our snowmobile club has a last hurrah and we have a work party to pick up trash and work on the warming shelter. I walked 4 miles up hill today...just a little tired! And I didn't even have my Fitbit on, dang it! Tomorrow I will work out in the greenhouse and maybe stitch a few seams. How's your weekend shaping up?

In sew news, I have a knit dress half made, a fleece jacket to cut out and a stack of fabrics to consider for some artful tees. I have cleaned one corner of the studio...Ha! Let's see if I can clean the rest of it before the sewing machine station gets fouled again! Rhonda Buss did a piece outing the disarray of her studio yesterday. I don't know...I think tidiness is a barrier to creativity. At least that's what I tell myself so I don't judge the mess in my room!
Busy day ahead...Quality Improvement meeting early and then a meeting in Bend for the Immunization coalition group I'm in. That means I will have to miss the Trauma Informed care meeting at noon. One of my girls said "you need to take more time off". Maybe I do...

I have lots of projects on tap. I have a Kwiksew knit dress cut out that should whip right up Maybe I can get it done for tonight's Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation dinner? I also have the pink camo fleece jacket to pu together, and ideas are collecting in my head for some artful tees.
I am patiently waiting for a Fabricmart drop. They had some bundle offers this week, and you all know how I love bundles! It got me thinking about my fabric procurement. Once upon a time, I was a big Fabric.com supporter. Then the fabric and service started to decline, so my main squeeze became Fabricmart. Most of my favorite garments started with Fabricmart. Let me take a look down memory lane:

The sewing continues here. I partook of the Hancocks liquidation sale and picked up a bunch of patterns at 6 for $7.50 and the fleece was marked down to 75%. I picked up a beautiful pink camo. I also purchased the Tilton sisters Craftsy class the Artful Tee Shirt and am playing around with different designs.
In other activities, we went for a fabulous snowmobile ride on Saturday and cleaned the garage out on Sunday. The weather is warming up and the greenhouse is primed for growing. Bring on Spring!
