How Long Have I Been Sewing? 2.5 years
Why Do I Want to Work With The Sew Weekly Challenges? Mostly, to be part of a full community of sewers–and to make myself commit to actually finishing garments. I already sew *most* of a garment a week, and then get hung up on a hem or some buttons or, heavens forfend, a hook-and-eye closure. Now I can finish more of them and have more fun doing it!
What Do I Love Most About Sewing Garments? Designing them and cutting them.
What Do I Hate Most About Sewing Garments? Sewing darts, hemming, and skirt waistbands.
What Do I Want to Accomplish This Year? More focus, more finished garments and fewer fabric scraps pinned to my wall waiting to become garments.
My Biggest Non-Sewing Goal of 2012: Remember how much I love cooking, and do more of it. Find more balance between my hobbies, my pleasures and my chores.
