Dreaming of Spring

Ohhh, how I can’t wait for spring to come! We took these pictures just before Christmas, actually. It did look a bit like spring was coming early this year, but now we’ve had some really long weeks of heavy snow, ice and super low temperatures. Today is the first sunny day in a long time and this reminded me to finally blog this little project.

Hello everyone! I hope you are all cosy and warm behind the sewing machine or on the couch. As gorgeous as it looks, the weather is quite unpleasant at the moment. I spend most of the time these days on the sofa, I have to admit. As much as I love sewing, nothing beats a hot tea or coffee and a great book when it’s freezing outside. I will try and squeeze in some sewing tomorrow, though. I’m in desperate need of some thick, cosy sweaters!

Lately, I was so busy sewing (and reading and knitting in order to muster some willingness towards the cold season) that I completely forgot to blog some of the makes we photographed a little while ago. One of these is another version of my KEIRA CARDIGAN, which I released a few weeks ago:

Sewing for my man

hooded cardigan men by thisblogisnotforyou.comHi my darlings, guess what happened? After all those years of selfish sewing I have finally made something for my man. It had been on my to-sew list pretty much every year, and last year I even went as far as making a muslin for a men’s shirt. The Mr doesn’t really wear shirts, so as you can imagine this project didn’t go very far. (I have to say though, I finished a shirt for my dad in December – not blogged – so I could tick “men’s shirt” of last year’s resolutions list).hooded cardigan men by thisblogisnotforyou.comA friend of mine made her boyfriend this pretty awesome hooded cardi and I promised the Mr to make him one as well.
