January 20, 2011


I started this blog as a way to write about my thoughts and creations.  I knew I wouldn't have a large number of readers, especially since I've hardly been sewing.  My neck has been cranky and won't let me cut fabric!  My fabulous little sewing corner got dark come winter :(  It's frustrating, let me tell you.  Thankfully I still have knitting.  And thinking, lol.

Since starting this blog I went from zero readers, to a few each day, now 20-30!  A huge thanks to Treena the Slapdash Sewist and everyone else who's linked to me :)  Becoming a part of the online sewing-blogging community is more than I'd imagined.   It's inspired me to dive in and sew, and finish some stalled projects.   I'm also inspired to dress better because getting dressed up, even a little, makes me feel better.

I'm a few weeks late but my goal for 2011 is to create more.  In the past I've gotten bogged down on big projects or when I felt stuck.  I have a lot of fabric, even more patterns, and plans for much of it.  Now is the time to do it!  In my queue are a faux suede jacket, a quilt to finish quilting, finish altering a skirt, a bathrobe, a knit dress and a red sweater to fix.  A couple of these projects will only require 2 hours to complete, others many more.  But they'll never be finished if I don't start!

New projects will be Burda trousers, some fun t-shirts, high-waisted jeans, and a fitted blouse.  I have one that I really like so why not make another?  This list is subject to change, of course, but they're projects I've wanted to make for some time.


  1. Hey,
    I'm glad you are getting lots of readers :)

    Sorry i have not commented much the past week, i was busy studying for the interview.

    Miss you and hope you are well,

    PS coffeeandvicodin is my new gmail acct.

  2. oh btw i made a semi-blog at coffeeandvicodin@blogspot.com

    I am going to post ideas sporadically there if you want to see.

  3. I have to alternate difficult, time-consuming projects with easy quick ones at a ratio of at least 1:3. Ambition is a close cousin of perfectionism--both dangerous to productivity!

  4. That's so smart! I should make a couple t-shirts to get my confidence up.

    Lately even easy projects became complicated or time consuming.


I adore comments! Thanks for taking the time :)
