What a wacky year 2020 is turning out to be yes? When I was first invited to join the annual Raspberry Creek Fabrics Suit up for Summer Blog Tour hosted by SewSophieLynn and Paisley Roots, I of course had no idea that there would be a chance we may not actually GET to wear our swimsuits this year, but one can always HOPE! I don't know about you, but my emotions have been all over the place. Last week all I could see was a downward spiral of gloom, but this week I have a bit more hope. So, here's to a summer of sprinklers, water tables, and HOPEFULLY swimming pools too!
As part of the Raspberry Creek Fabrics Blog Tour, I shared the Boo! Designs Swimmers Rash Guard with a side stripe running along the sleeve and side. I thought I'd write a separate post with instructions on how I did it!

My goodness, these last few weeks have been such a blur, I forgot to do a writeup on DC Frocktails! So, Frocktails! I wasn't entirely sure what this event would be all about but I knew I wanted to be part of it. I planned to jump on tickets as soon as they came available but then when I saw they were kinda pricey, I hesitated. And then when I finally decided to just get the tickets anyway, they had sold out! Thankfully I was able to get a ticket from the waitlist in early January.
It's new pattern time! Itch to Stitch launched the Tallinn Top and Dress today - this is a fitted knit top/dress with princess seams, center front seam, and options for a peplum, top, or dress. You'll need fabric with about 50% horizontal stretch and good recovery. I used Cotton Lycra for mine but you can use any jersey, double-brushed poly, ITY or French Terry.
I love that Right Start Math have been publishing some of their games on their blog this winter! As we get stuck inside on cold days, it's nice to have some inspiration on keeping the kids having fun learning indoors!
