Happy February, makers! I hope you are having a great week. There is so much awesome sewing happening right now it is hard to keep up! I am especially impressed by all the finished winter coats that keep popping up in my feed.  Tackling a big project like that is so amazing, you all should be very proud!  I am also enjoying seeing all the Toaster Sweaters from project #sewmystyle. It really does look great on everyone, I need one myself!!
