I re-organized my stitching supplies and that has slowed my stitching quite a lot. Also, no printer so I had to figure out how to read and mark the 2013 HAED SAL(I'm doing Mystic Garden) on the little tablet, and that took quite a lot of time. Doing it that way is really slow. Here is my progress on that:
I've also done a bit on Needle Maiden and I think on Mini Soul Mates:
And my little kitchen piece saw a few stitches:
I've done a bit of sewing, or revamping, on my clothes. I'm trying to cut things down as most of what is left of them are too big. So I forgot to take pics of all of that, though there is one of a half slip I decided to make as I need one for the skirts I am altering. Here is a quick snap I took when I had set it aside to do something else.
I still have a hem to put into one skirt and some repairs on the side slit on another to take care of. Plus my old, favorite corduroy jumper which is just huge on me, and I'm hoping to figure out how to take that in enough to be wearable.
Obviously all of this takes place around looking for a new job. It completely freaks me out to not be employed. I think I was prepared for a number of things, but not this.
Anyway, I know everyone is full of new starts and SAL's and I've been enjoying looking at all the new work and the New Year blog posts. I can't wait to see more of them. Also thinking of trying a few new things. I've never made a circle skirt or a one seam skirt and I think there is probably enough in my stash for me to do so. No floss or fabric or anything has been bought since the lay-off thing so everything must either be from my small stash or must wait.
What are y'all looking forward to this year? Planning to try anything new or go back to something you've done in the past? I know many of your SAL's have started, do you have more than one? Two? Any new charts or patterns you just can't resist? Let me know what you are dreaming about doing this year.
That is about all for today.
Hope you have Happy Stitching Everyone!
