It’s been almost one year, 115 posts, 387 comments and many yards of fabric sewn (and even more bought!). I’ve discovered that I like blogging much more than I thought I would when I started this blog to try to promote my Etsy shop. I’m not so sure it’s been a great help on that front, but I know I do plan on continuing this blog, shop or no shop. There’s such a great online community of crafters….so much inspiration, help, and encouragement.
I have lots of ideas and plans for the coming year….lots of sewing, maybe learning to knit (!?), organizing, new things for my shop, and lots more.
First on my list was joining Wardrobe Refashion. I’ve been trying to not buy much clothing anyway….just knits, jeans, socks, stuff like that. So I figured, I might as well jump in. I’m hoping it doesn’t start for a couple days, though, because tomorrow we’re headed to the big city for my birthday. I don’t plan on buying anything, but I’d like to keep that option open should the opportunity present itself! I signed up for four months. I probably will honestly mostly be sewing things for myself from fabric, not repurposing. But that still counts for something, right? Come join us! I think it’s going to be fun!
I just finished up this skirt and blouse for me. I think I’m going to redo the neckline….I’m just not sure what I’m going to do. It doesn’t lay right, even though you can’t tell in the picture. I drafted the top based on a blouse that I own. I really love the original blouse and I would love to be able to get a better copy of it. I got to use some hem tape from the stash I got from my Grandma to trim the bottom of the skirt. It was a perfect match and I love getting to use my Grandma’s things.
I’ll be posting pics of the two Christmas quilts as soon as I take them. They weren’t perfect (not even close!), but the boys loved them and that’s the important thing.
