Like, OMG! It's been a year since I've talked to you all!
Like, how does that happen and all?!
Hope everyone had a lovely new year and there
better be more sewing in everyone's future.
I'm not one that uses obituary dates to set goals in my life, but this coming year, I do have some things that I want to concentrate more on.
- Get a JOB!
- Finish one of my children's stories.
- Storyboard two stories I have.
- Learn to swing dance.
- Learn After Effects.
- Move from my current apartment.
Yeah, those are the big ones. I know sewing isn't in that list. I sew a lot already,
I'm pretty caught up with all of that.
But this past month, with it being Christmas AND my birthday
(Dec. 13th: late presents always welcome!),
I treated myself on some new patterns.
A '30s sloper. I thought that was quite interesting. So she's mine now.
This one I bought because of the nurse's uniform. Every year there is a huge vintage event, the LA Air Raid, and for the last two years I've been meaning to go! I'm thinking of going as a nurse, but I'd want to ge the uniform as close as I can. I've been researching black nurses during WWII, and have some great photos.
This dress might be my project for the next few weeks. The Air Raid is in February.
I was really into accessories patterns this month. The one right above I saw a long time ago. It was in a forgotten lot and I thought I bid high enough. You know how that goes... I actually think this is the same pattern. I was comparing screen shots and tears on the envelope are in exactly the same places. It's so strange that happens a lot!
Im going to add sleeves and have so much fun with stripes and colors.
My New Years was rather uneventful. I was in bed by 7:30. Slept right through it. I was cool with that. Right now I have some cabbage and potatoes roasting in the oven filling my cold apartment with warmth and yummy smells. Not a bad way to start the new year.
SO what are all of you gearing up to do for this brand new set of 365 days? Any major projects? Classes?
