I should think those of you in the Northern Hemisphere are looking forward to the start of Spring and planning your spring sewing. Of course, those of us down under will have to think about our Autumn sewing.
In roman times, March was the beginning of the year, and March is named after the Roman god Mars - the god of spring, agriculture and growth - and later became the protector of these as the God of War (Romans were big on war).
So as sewers, maybe we should steal a march and declare our own spring sewing war - you know, the one we all have every year, and never quite win - garments planned and not quite sewn.
Looking forward to seeeing what you come up with for March.
And don't forget, you can sew anything you like - the theme is more about imagination and inspiration, but in my challenges I always leave it up to you to pursue your own sewing goals.
Sew, let's March on :)
