This year has gone by so fast I can’t believe it! I had to sit down and think about what all I’ve accomplished this year….hmmm….still thinking…
Well, all I know is that I want to be more active in 2014 AND work at getting rid of all the fabrics I’ve accumulated this year alone. OH THAT’S IT!! I’ve been buying fabric.
It’s pathetic! I have an addiction…I already know. I’ve been told many times but I can admit that it’s so hard to stop. You know what I mean, don’t you? You! Yes You!! You know who you are! I’m looking right at you! Fabrics with no projects in mind just because they were either on sale or just plain cute to pass up is what has accumulated, so now it’s time to sew it all up. Uh huh, I see u smiling…
Before heading into the new year, I leave 2013 with a big THANK YOU to my hubby for supporting my bad spending habits when it came to all my sewing
needs wants. I know we I will pay big time for it later on.
I leave 2013 with some new friends to take along in 2014 too. One person in particular is Natasha from housefulofnicholes.com who has become not only my new friend but also my hanging buddy online especially during the wee hours of the night. THANK YOU! We’ve hit it off so well and I’m happy to have met her. We get a lot accomplished talking, helping and motivating each other at
2, 3, 4 am when necessary. I plan on doing a lot of fun activities in 2014 with her so you will be seeing more of me out there in the sewing community. I hope to learn a lot from her moving forward. You hear that Natasha?? You can’t get rid of me now!! ha ha ha
Wrapping up December, I’ve worked on a Boston Bag pattern from funny Rabbit. It is an easy project to sew and I have whipped out a few bags for the kiddos. I loved how the bag turned out using different fabrics in corduroy and flannel. I used my son who grudgingly (although you can’t tell) modeled for me to show dimension. These bags are ready to ship and available in my Etsy shop. Aren’t they cute? You know you want one!!
This bag can be used in multiple ways which is why I thought it was fitting to make for kids.
➢ Great Uses:
Traveling (car or plane)
Small Diaper bag (for quick errands)
First Aid Supply bag
Wait…I think this is a start of getting rid of some of the fabrics I’ve accumulated thus far, you think? Well, we’ll see as I won’t make any promises but I will try really hard….so stay tuned!
There’s some cute fabric on sale too at….. NO, STOP IT!!!!!
