Who's ready for the new year? Not me. Not yet, anyway. I still need to eat turkey and put up the tree. But, I'm enjoying the calm before the holiday storm right now.
I subscribe to a sewing magazine, Sew News and at the end of December's issue, they included a sewing goal chart to fill out. It gave me an idea to ask you if your sewing dreams were fulfilled for 2019. Did you complete projects, use up some stash fabric, or maybe you learned something new? Did you have a sewing fail or two?
I have a silly question for you. Do you ever buy fabric without knowing what you'll make with it?
Quietly raises a hand, I'm guilty of this. #fabrichoarder
Well, boredom set in on a Friday night and I didn't have to taxi kids around.
So, I opted for the ole "cereal for dinner" mantra.
And I took a whole afternoon-turned to night, for me. And did some selfish sewing.
I looked in my stash and had Halloween fabric I bought years...and years ago. I also had some fun Jetson's fabric. I'm a child of the 80's after all. It was a stash busting selfish sewing kind of night.
I always buy at least 2 yards of fabric, especially If I'm unsure what it'll get used for. You can usually get a skirt, a top, or a blanket and matching items for a baby gift, etc. out of 2 yards.
All I needed was 2 yards of fabric, an invisible zipper, and coffee.
Hi there, I'm Annette and I love eating and sewing. I usually have a cup of coffee or tea with me, but not next to my machine because I'd probably spill it. I am the reason we can't have nice things.
