The only new technique I used this month was to move some darts into the side seam, but I did use all stash fabrics! Even if it was only 5 yards and some tulle scraps.
I'm busily at work on a dress for Myra with Simplicity 2907 and some adorable Elmo fabric. If you have a toddler girl, don't show her this one, or an immediate trip to Hobby Lobby will be in order!
I've made a personal goal to knit at least two rows each day. It isn't much, but it adds up. It's really fun to see progress being made. I find knitting very restful. The progress is glacial compared to sewing, but that makes it OK to just go slow and enjoy the process, which is not something that I always let myself do when I sew. It is so nice to just sit on the couch or porch, listen to my kids play and knit.
I'm going to just go with the flow this month and sew whatever strikes my fancy. There may be a good quantity of knitwear on the horizon! We should have an ultrasound this month, so maybe I'll feel like some baby sewing. We'll see...
