Firstly, Happy New Year!
Well, aside from the recent Christmas Baubles I’ve just not been sewing. Nothing. At all. With two weeks off for Christmas I’ve had time to catch up on the happenings in the sewing community online and finally do some sewing.
I turned by attention to finally sewing a test piece of the Colette Hazel dress using Calico. Most sewing bloggers did this about a year ago and my original plan was to sew it over the Summer but clearly that didn’t happen. So I’m sewing a summery dress in December/January and really wishing it was July *sigh*.
Anyhow, I’m keen to keep learning so here are my sewing goals for the year:
1. Participate in a sew along. What is a sew along? It’s when a group of sewers decide to make something at the same time e.g. when a new pattern comes out and they blog about their progress online and support each other. For a beginner like me it would be great to be a part of!
2. Sew gifts for friends and family. Where time permits I would love to give handmade gifts this year (including handmade cards).
3. Make clothes I can wear regularly and buy less ready to wear stuff.
Sounds acieveable I think!
Have a wonderful 2014!
