It is cold, wet, and dreary here at Front Forty Farm, and the weather pattern is forecasted to stay this way well into next week. Everything is turning green; the flowers are blossoming; the birds are singing; everything is calling me outside...except for the rain. On Saturday I did try to brave the weather. I donned my raincoat and rubber boots and headed to the squash garden to do some prep for planting. The weeds are coming up quickly, and I know with all the rain, they will grow and multiply very quickly like they did last year. Weeds are very easy to pull when the ground is wet, so I thought it was a perfect opportunity to tackle them. I wasn't out very long, however, before I was drenched; the rain soaked through my raincoat, dripped down into my boots, and even found a way inside my rubber gloves. I gave up and came in, deciding I would have to settle for a cup of tea and inside projects.
I finished a dress I started a few months ago for Little #9, using one of my new Cirtronille patterns, Solveig. I figured with the cool, rainy weather we are having Little #9 could get some immediate use from this little cotton dress with long sleeves. She may even want the extra layer warmth of her In Threes sweater. I also worked on some summer tops for her, using my Marie pattern. I just have to choose a button for each. The buttons I am leaning towards are from a thrifted dress that I purchased for the buttons only; they are so bright and cheery, and I love the floral design imprinted on them. I have pile of mending and alterations that I should have been working on, but creating new is always more fun. With so much rain in our forecast, I'm sure my sewing room will see much more of me in the coming weeks.
I hope you all had a lovely weekend, and I want to thank all of you who stopped by for my "Moment", leaving such sweet comments. I truly appreciate each one and read them many times over.
