January 2019

I had some time this month and have started and finished a couple of sewing projects.  For some crazy and unknown reason I joined in the MakeNineChallenge , this is what got me going and now I have to finish these nine projects.
My Nine.
1. Use this fabric from the stash.
2. Sew the Tamsyn Top
3. Sew the Factory Dress
4. Complete the Temperature Quilt
5. Finish this knitted pullover
6. Stitch these quilt blocks together (most likely will end up being a charity quilt).
7. Sew the long trousers
8. Knit the yellow socks
9. Another pair of trousers.

2018 Ends

The year is almost ended and I am at home watching TV and thinking about what 2019 will bring to my life.

Christmas Day was interesting to say the least, not too hot or humid at least and in the end we all over ate and enjoyed the time together.

This week for whatever reason I finished two works in progress and started and finished another.  This is the crochet project, Secret Paths shawl from Mijo Crochet.  Made the edging wider to use as much of the self-striping yarn as possible.  I am very happy with the result.

This summer dress ended up knee length after all, it looked too much like a nightdress that granny would wear, oh my not for me.  Still looks like a nightie, but at least I will wear it during our hot steamy summer.
High waisted shorts for summer, I really want to make the long pants, but decided that shorts were a better option for altering and making a good fit.  They fit so well with minimal adjustment I am amazed. 

The world's worst selfie, the only mirror is in a very dark wood paneled room.

And finally:
