January was good to me this year too. I made six pieces and my sewing is moving in another direction which is very encouraging to me. I've had great highs this month - the Ponte & Leather Dress and incredible lows - The Vogue Jacket.
Four dresses and two jackets were completed this month. More progress was made on The City in Winter Collection. A few more pieces and it will be done. Two items were featured on The Mood Sewing Network...
...and I'm moving forward with another designer inspired garment.
Of course more fabric was added to the collection. I do have a healthy fabric addiction after all! *LOL* But most importantly my new baby arrived. I love coming into the sewing cave and seeing the Horizon 8900 sitting next to my Babylock serger. I feel like my sewing has finally grown to the point where I can use the best of the best to create.
I also added a new piece to the sewing room to handle some of the fabric overflow.
(Notice how it's already filled with fabric!)
Now if I could just get those last three garbage bags unpacked from Hurricane Sandy! *LOL* I have one more corner of the sewing room to fix...I want to add another bookcase to store my books on which will free up two more shelves for fabric storage. I will also be able to move my sewing knick knacks onto a shelf and out of storage. The other change I want to make to the sewing room is to get my sewing magazines unboxed and stored away. I'm using some shelving poorly in my sewing room and I want to repurpose it which will give me space for my magazines.
My sister who hasn't been in the sewing cave since my fabric was in plastic bins, came down the other day and was amazed at how much it's changed. Just a few more changes and I think I will be done for a little while! *LOL*
Hopefully February will be good to me sewing-wise too!
...as always more later!
