Happy New Year!!!

Happy New Year's Day !!!
Resolutions that I have made for sewing the Year- 2009 are:
1. To become a better blogger.
2. To actually create, make and post items that I have made
with my sewing machine and stop dreaming about the clothing
I did not make
3. To stop lurking around the great sewers posts because
I am intimidated by their sewing abilities and their talent for sewing.
4. To befriend more sewing buddies to keep up my momentum for
5. To sew down a fabric stash that is continually growing.
Last year I made an apron and one other item. I brought about 20 yards of fabric. This is going to change. I will use all of the fabric I have brought that I like in the next three months. I have become a lurker in the world of sewing and I want to become a full participant. I would like to meet some new friends and share some ideas about this hobby of mine. I have been so stressed about other issues (work namely) that I have allowed this to interfere with my personal life. This year is about change and I aim to do just that. My happiness is important and I see that sewing brings me happiness as I sit for hours reading your blogs from start to finish. I like that way you all support each other and I would like to be a part of this wonderful community. I will post pictures of my items when they are sewn as the rest of you do. I have to sew something first.
Have a great New Years Day!!!!

No Sewing Done

I have not been able to sew in the past year. I have lost my mojo!!! I still like to read sewing blogs and shop in fabric stores, but nothing has crossed my sewing maching in the last year except for an apron. I hope that soon I am able to get my mojo back and my happiness returns. I am not sure, but somehow I feel that something is wrong in my life. I will figure this out all too soon. I am sewer who feels no joy in the process any more.

One Day Off

Today is the day before a memorial day and I went to the Hancock Fabric Sale. I brought several patterns, Butterick4790-Retro 1952. I am looking forward to working on this one. I also brought Butterick B5211, B4461, B4751, B3860B5225 all for 88cents each. I also brought 3 1/2 red fabric poplin, 1 1/2yards of red gingham and 2 yards of pink gingham. I am excited because I feel my mojo coming back.
I am going to wash this fabric and dry it tonight and I might cut tomorrow.
I am so-o-o-o excited.
