Hearty Sweatsuits


Greetings from the North. Lots of sewing has been happening, but so have many other things, so photo-taking's been at a minimum. 

Well, I have to admit I've taken a lot of bird photos. I've spotted 140 species this year so far. Especially exciting was photographing the Pacific Loon, an ocean bird, on a Minnesota lake. Minnesota is nowhere an ocean.


Maybe because of winter's onslaught, I've been stitching up lots of cozy clothing, especially pants for the girls.

I've made this hooded sweatshirt (Ottobre 1-2004-14) numerous times, but I think this is the first time I've done the Jump Sweatpants (1-2008-19), which have a wide yoga-style waistband.

I'm happy to have finally used up my super stiff 2" elastic (ribbed non-roll). My new roll, knitted, is so much softer. I'll have to take note of how much it rolls during wear.




After a dry, warm fall and early winter, we suddenly got over 13 inches of snow in one day. Wahoo!


My outdoor photo spot. Farewell till spring.


 And the sun sets on our winter wonderland.

  1. Hi Joy,
    Nice to see your sewing again. As always, the girls look great.
    Will you be entering these into the children PR contest? I was going to contact you earlier but I guessed you would be making something for the family:))

    2. Huh, I guess I've been so out of the loop lately, that I didn't know about the PR contest. Will have to look it up!

    1. Ha! That's a dangerous thing. I could almost say I have too many, except that they are very well-used.

    1. Thanks. I imagine we have more snow than you do. Although, I think I'd rather be exploring a remote Hawaiiaan beach right now...

  6. Good to see you back in the blogging business. Good to see comfy outfits for the kids. Not good to see so much white stuff, especially if it is a harbinger of things to come. (Which would make it one of the 140 for the year, I s'pose.)
