Like anyone living in the Northern Hemisphere I am hesitant to get overconfident when it comes to acknowledging the arrival of Spring...that is to say, I am not washing the snowsuits just yet. Any action of that sort would be viewed by the season in retreat as a challenge to return....and I have lived through many a March and April where snow was the reality.
However, more covert actions are taking place inside...away from prying eyes. We are a stealth bunch when it comes to the Springtime shift. There are many planting seeds. Some are refusing to don the cold weather uniform of long-johns and undershirts. And then there are those who are showing their support to the return of the light by sewing. I am a full-on supporter of such activities...especially the last.
This afternoon with sun shining in my kitchen window, and my feet firmly planted on the floor in the warm spot created by said sun, I got to work. Despite the fact that there are no less than three new dresses in my closet awaiting their debut in the outside air, I felt the pull to try a new pattern on for size.

When the time finally comes I will be the one dressed up in a pretty cotton dress covered in mushrooms shaking my fist and yelling "Beat it Winter. Don't let the door hit you on the way out".
What will you be wearing?
