Welcome 2016, any chance you saw what happened to 2015?

Well, there it is then, a new year.  A fresh twelve months in which to attempt to clear the stash, sort the piles of wobbly fabrics begging to be made and rifle through pages of Burda patterns, PDFs and pattern cutting books.

2015 passed in a bit of a blur for me, it’s wasn’t my most sucessful year!  So here’s to a new beginning, although I am certainly not going to write any resolutions or that sort of stuff.  I find if I make those things too definite, they never get done! (weird I know)

I’d like to start by welcoming followers, new and old to my little world of sewing and fabric buying.  There will be posts (intermittent) and purchases (frequent), and in my head I would have written a dozen blog posts a month – definitely not per week.  So if you can possibly stand the non-regularity with which I run my life, it’ll be good to see you all on the other side.

I am at present looking at a whole stack of things I have made in the last few months, but apart from a little peak on Instagram, haven’t shown anyone.  Not sure whether to correct this by running up a pile of posts or cramming the makes into just a few round-up posts.  I might let you guys decide.

In the meantime, enjoy munching the last few slices of Christmas cake, putting away the remains of the decorations and thinking of gym memberships.  I will start working on actually showing you all what I’ve been making, what I thought of it and whether it’s worth making again!

Happy New Year everyone!

I love fabric, and sewing. And I could do nothing else but sew, all day, every day, if I could!

  1. Happy New Year! I love intermittent posts since I do the same thing! 😀 And I have no clue where 2015 went. I think the older I get the faster time speeds by! Doesn’t seem right!

    1. Luckily I have no UFOs, but a fair bit of mending and of course, lots of projects waiting to be started! Happy New year, and happy sewing!

  2. Happy new year! I think intermittent posting is the absolute prerogative of the sewing blogger. After all, sewing comes first!
    I love the white jacket you are wearing in the picture by the way. Very fetching!

      1. I knew there were other people out there who put sewing before wearing! My wardrobe is testament to that, with loads of makes that turned out well and still don’t get worn all that much . Sigh…

  3. Second Chris’ comment – the jacket is fab! Also agree that you should post whatever way works for you. 😉 We’re delighted to read & view whenever! Happy New Year!

    1. Aww, thank you Del! That jacket (and others using the same pattern) were made before I even thought of blogging! Happy New Year!

    1. Thank you Evie, Happy New Year to you too! I really need to get the details of the wedding outfit out, I started with the top, but never got going properly! Oh dear… 🙂
