I'm always ready for spring, but after this winter, I'm even more excited. And...........I HAVE JOB INTERVIEWS!!!!!!!!!!!!  2 to be exact.  One this week and a final interview with another organization next week, so I might be back to work soon!  Conversely, if I go through all of this and don't get either job, I might be spending April curled up in a ball in the back of my closet.  Ah, the possibilities......

I finally have a picture of Andy's new shirt with buttons,
and started my next project,
 which you might notice isn't pajamas.  It's another one of these
which is what I'm wearing for Me Made Monday today.  At least this is also a very old piece of fabric--probably 2006/2007.  It's a fine-wale corduroy, and I bought it to make a shirt for Andy, apparently before I figured out how much fabric it takes to make a shirt.  Since the jacket involves a LOT of pieces, it takes less fabric, so it's almost the only option for this fabric, and it will make a very nice jacket, so
One great thing about a pattern you know REALLY well--you can pin up a lot of pieces to sew all at once, so even with all the top stitching and 20+ pattern pieces, it might be the fastest sewing project I have now.  I should look for a similar pattern with front pockets--that would be very nice.  I'm sure I have one--what I am LACKING is the drive to look through the pattern stash......
