Spring, Passover, long vacation!

Less then a week ago we started Summer clock here in Israel... I guess Spring is officially here, along with Passover!
This year is the first year both my husband and myself take time off work and we intend to spend the whole week with our girls, travel every day, play with them. I think it is great, that we can do that.. but now, after three such days... I'm so tired! It is much easier going to work every day and get myself going with my regular cups of coffee :-)
Anyway, I started summer sewing, but did actually very little... and I probably will not have time during the coming days.
So what did I do?
I made three Rivieras for my girls...
Here's two..

I also made three summer hats... from this great free pattern here...

What are my April plans?
I've decided that at the end of each month I'll try to plan the next one... My goal is try at least one new pattern each month, and make at least one thing for each one of us (I do NOT include my husband... only the girls and myself) each month.
So this month's tasks:
1. One top for myself - I'll try Butterick 4789

I still didn't understand how it is done though... I looked at the instructions but got nowhere with them, so I decided to cut the fabric and just try it out...
Then what?
2. Two bathing suits, one for each girl.
3. Good pants for myself. I hope I can make it all!


  1. I made a dress using that Butterick pattern and really love it. I think it's a great pattern.

  2. Chag sameach! I love the shorts and the hats! Have a happy holiday.
