This year was a year of firsts for me. Well, jumps and starts, really. Mid-year I decided that the best sewing on earth was sewing for me. So by the power vested in me I declare 2012 to be:
The YEAR OF ULTIMATE SELFISHNESS!!!
I ruthlessly plan to increase my stash- all the better to start foolish projects and make them work with my lifestyle. Bilo in a tutu- you betcha!
I vow to sew my first of hopefully many vintage patterns and wear them! I want to be on We Sew Retro this year in the most foolish picture possible.
I want to sew a really good pair of pants and work on sewing more coordinates.
I want no more UFO’s in my workroom, I want to find viable solutions to my sewing dilemnas and not waste any more precious textiles!
I also want to fully line some things and go back and fix some things that were ok, but not perfect- so it doesn’t end up in the bin.
Mostly I want to sew fearlessly. Let no instructions or negative opinions stop my quest.
So please come along for the ride- it may not always be pretty but it will always be a little different!
