First Garment for 2010

This is my first top sewn for the New Year - KS 3658. Sewing time was super quick and super easy. Check out for a full review.

Just love! love! love! This top, so comfy and soft.

Woo! Hoo! I've found it!

... my sewing log, that is. To my surprise, in 2009 I've sewn 64 items (which used 77.95 m) and ).embroidered 27 blanks. Interestingly, it doesn't seem like I've done much at all sewingwise. I guess needing a holiday wardrobe helped with the totals.

...... now I just need to take care of the 54m that found it's way to my sewing room this year.

Oh, did I mention that the first item of the new decade has been completed? More on that next post (along with some pics

Promises Kept

I'm not really one for making New Years resolutions, as inevitably, I somehow manage to forget (break) them not much after they're made. This year I am setting myself some goals which I'm more likely to achieve.

Firstly, since I've misplaced my sewing log book (knew I should have just not bothered tidying my sewing room!), I think I'll blog my sewing - less likely to lose the laptop.

Secondly I really, really need to get not only my spiralling weight under control, but also need to get and exercise - it will simply be walking the block, but hey! that's better than sitting round developing an A frame.

So that's it! Just 2 goals ... anything else is a bonus.
