It’s early January and I’m not heading anywhere tropical so I shouldn’t really be sewing Spring garments, but Pattern Review had a contest …
A year ago I made a version of this vest and it got plenty of wear, so it was time to make up another- with a slight twist
2018 was my third year of sewing in earnest. I sewed more in 2018 than ever before, and it became a bigger part of my life. Here’s how the year went.
What I need is a basic black handbag … but how boring would it be to sew a black handbag? I made something less utilitarian, but more fun.
A couple of years ago I started using a sleep mask because I wasn’t feeling particularly rested. Our bedroom is lit up like a Christmas tree every night with lights on monitors, bedside clocks, motion sensors for the cats, etc. and I kept reading that ambient light diminishes sleep. The mask improved my sleep so much that I decided to make up some to give as Christmas gifts.
What an absolute luxury. I’m away from work for the next 11 days. Yes, eleven … What am I going to do with all this time?
