Spring is in the air! I apologize if it isn’t where you are, but here in Toronto, we’ve had a nice run of warm weather that has me digging out fabrics I packed away last fall in anticipation of stitching up twirly skirts and more floaty Paige tanks.  Oh, and all the other projects I wanted to make last summer and didn’t have time to get to (like a boxy cropped jacket, perhaps a chambray romper…). I have to confess that since the New Year my sewing machine has not seen a lot of love.  I’m not gonna lie – we’ve been watching a lot of TV (thanks Netflix). But I have been doing little things here and there, like taping up everything around the house with my little crafting partner.  If you skip on over to The Motherboards you can have a peek at these little St. Patrick’s Day-inspired crafts I created.  For me St Paddy’s means Shamrock Shakes, er, I mean springtime, so all the more reason to break out the floaty gauzes and pretty prints and get sewing.

This also means I need to get finishing some projects like the HST toddler-size quilt I’ve been very slowly crafting for little Mr O. I’m obsessed with all things half-square, which was part of the inspiration for this little shamrock-trimmed box.  Let’s hope with some luck it’s really, truly spring soon!
