Spring For Cotton: Emerald Pastille Hack

Dear Readers,
        I didn't even realize it. My blog is a year old. How did that happen? My first post went live on April 28, 2014 as a result of the much-lauded Me-Made-May that is hosted by Zoe. While this post is not written for the purpose of waxing eloquent over the things I have learned, I did want to mention the happy fact that I have managed to stick with my blog for a year. Unlike the countless journals/diaries that I have begun only to toss them to the side within a few weeks (at the most!), I have remained faithful (albeit sporadically) to this bit of online presence. I can say with all honesty that my experience has been entirely enjoyable!
        Moving on!
   I decided that this year I was going to participate in Rochelle's Spring for Cotton sew-a-long. I had many glamourous plans. They did not work out. Instead of being able to introduce a self-drafted dress with the intent of impressing all and sundry; I am quite willing to allow the credit and "glory" go to the very experienced and hardworking independent pattern company: Colette Patterns.

Easter Sunday - 2015

Happy Easter!
         Contrary to my expectations, I have not abandoned Blogger. I decided that this was not the time to be messing with the transition to a self-hosted Wordpress blog. My schedule is cram-packed and I do not have enough energy at the end of the day to make paying for my own domain worthwhile. I have come to the conclusion that for the foreseeable future I will do the best with this blog that I can, and perhaps someday I will be able to invest in a better blogging platform, but. . .Today is not that day! (Bonus points and a virtual brownie to all who fully appreciate that statement.)

      On to the purpose of this post!
