Spring is here! Hibernation is over...

Apparently, I hibernate for 6 months. I can't believe I haven't posted here since September.
My excuses are:

1. I haven't really sewn anything all winter (except for the now traditional Christmas nightgowns for my daughters),

2. I started a few posts, but they never made it past draft mode, and

3. I had to cut down on the amount of time I was spending on the computer, which meant less time on Pattern Review and reading blogs.

I thought it was time to start blogging again, because I just registered for PR Weekend in Montreal. Why, you may ask? Because despite my lack of actual sewing, I am still somewhat enamoured with the "idea" of sewing...

I still wander around fabric stores, touching everything in sight and thinking about what I could make, but I am not allowing myself to purchase any fabric until I use some of my stash.

I still check out the pattern catalogs, and occassionally buy a pattern or two, even though I have MANY patterns that I have never used.

I'm excited to meet sewists who actually complete more than one project a year.

I'm hoping the weekend will inspire me to start actually sewing... gotta have something to wear...

And, I love Montreal, live just two hours away, and rarely get there.

I'm really looking forward to it!
