Finally found my mojo!


Shirt #13 (Seersucker)

After a few weeks of accomplishing little, I’ve finally got some energy back.   I’ve managed to make shirt #13 (since March) and have cut out another.

This shirt is grey, white, red and pink stripe seersucker with a stark white collar band and no collar.  There is also a white accent on the pocket, horizontal-cut yoke and rounded, tuck-in hem.  The seams are flat felled and top stitched for lasting wear.  I hope he likes it.

While stitching, I’ve decided to try and make enough shirts for Jacob to wear a different shirt each day for a month.  If that is the goal, I’m nearly halfway there!  If I don’t poop out or if he doesn’t stop me, I hope to reach that goal by late Spring.  I hope it’s not too ambitious.  We shall see!

As I type this post, the pressure canner is singing its jiggling song.  I’m processing 7 pints of split pea and ham soup.  Along with a grilled cheese sandwich, a pint of split pea and ham soup will make a super easy dinner this winter when a hot, hearty meal will be appreciated.  If my energy holds this week, I plan to can some chicken soup too.  Bob stocked our freezer near full of chicken he found on sale so I’m anxious to process some for easy meal preparation.

I much prefer opening jars of my own soup (canned with love) than opening anything commercially prepared (with chemicals and preservatives).  Mine tastes SO much better too!
