My “Finally get it together year”
Name and location: Kimberley Dierdorf, Yuma Arizona
I have been sewing most of my life. I bounced between sewing for my self when I had a figure, sewing for our children, quilting and this year I want to sew more for myself again in order to find outfits that fit and flatter. I usually decide that i will sew something for my self- get discouraged and then whip up something for our 19 year old daughter who still has a figure to look great in what ever i make her!
I am comitting to the sew weekly challenge in order to quit looking at patterns and actually make some up. When i went to find a photo of me wearing something that i have made- well I can give you dozens of my daughter, a relative’s toddler – me? Nothing doing so that has to change.
I love the way small touches can make a pattern very personal to you. i love the sewing aspect.
I am the least fond of cutting/marking and button holes( my machine can be touchy)
My non sewing goal of 2012: lose weight
Fashion blogs: I really haven’t narrowed them down yet other than sew weekly
