The year got off to a good start as we saw the New Year in on the Mayan Riviera. It was the last night of a wonderful week long vacation in Mexico with friends.
I started this blog last year and it did help me to become more focused in my sewing. I did not get to all the things I had on my original list, but did many others.
So what is in store for this year? Well I first need to finish off a few UFOs. My Lady Grey Coat, Cape, gloves and undies, all in various stages of completion.
Then the Minoru jacket sew along..............
|The floral fabric is the lining, the main fabric is an olive green heavy cotton (it looks brown in this pic!). The red is a silky lining for the sleeves.|
..........and the Sew Colette Sew Along (the Colette book was a little "to me, from me" early Christmas present). First up the meringue skirt.
|The fabric for my Meringue skirt is a brown linen type fabric from my stash.|
Then I decided I needed a dress for my company's annual function which is on February 4th.
|Chocolate brown crepe backed satin|
And last year when Peter at Male Pattern Boldness did a Boxers Sew Along, I purchased the pattern and fabric for the three males in my family, and never got any further!!!
And if that's not enough to get on with, I received an e-mail from Sewaholic advertising their new pattern. Casual tops. And I know from the me-made challenges, I am short of self stitched casual tops.
So that should keep me going for a while!!
