Some February

I don't know about some of you, but February seemed to be a tough month. Bad weather, lousy health, unexpected surprises all contributed to not getting anything done on my machines.
I like to sew because I find it fun and lets me unwind and get creative. Man that just didn't happen this last month. One project to finish and one I really want to start so I hope March is looking better.
I think it will be. Gonna make something to wear for this spring time coming up. And I'm going to have fun doing it. February can pass and I won't shed a tear Just smiling as March comes down the track.

Sew Along

Still working on finishing up my pants project. No rush and I have been in slow mode lately. I think I am going to
try to join Peter's (from PR)shirt sew along starting in Feb. I've never participated in one of these but it sounds like fun so thought I'd give it a try. I plan on using my own draft pattern that I put together. Maybe pick out a collar from David Coffin's shirt book and do it in flannel with 3/4 sleeves. I got that idea from TGM kittys and it sounds like something that would work for me.

Its a new what?

Another year again? Geez, what happened to the last one? Well I think the first project for 2011 will be put a cheap pair of pants together from my pattern that I drafted. The sloper thing fits okay so I'll give it a try on some of my messing around fabric first. If that goes like I want it to, then I've got some nice brown linen I want to make some trousers with.

I hope everyone has a great start in this year and it continues right on through to the next one. Stay warm and safe.
