First to start off I have to apologize for the lack of blogging in the later part of last year. It wasn’t that I didn’t still spend weekends and evening at my sewing machine but life just got a little busy…and then flipped upside down.  The flip was an actual flip when I fell off a horse and spent the last couple of months working on recovery.

But that doesn’t mean that I didn’t get a couple of little projects completed in time for the holidays! Below I wanted to share a couple quick photos of what I was working on over the blog “break”. Up and coming – pjs, skirts and another quilt! Some are already done and some are still just ideas but this year I have a few projects in mind that I want to sew together. Sewing goal for 2017 is this: become better friends with my serger. I was lucky enough that my Mom passed me along this great book with serger tricks and tweaks that I’m looking forward to learning more about.

I haven’t forgotten though about my knitting and right now have a new knitting project sitting on my coffee table all ready to cast on! Knitting and I had a bit of a disagreement towards the later part of last year which is why I’ve been more sewing than knitting but I’m ready now to make friends with it again and give it another go!
