Happy New Year!

It's been a while since I've posted. I've been busy. 2010 ended in a flurry of activity and 2011 is starting out the same way. Too much to do in too little time.

So that's why I've added to it and joined the Vintage Sewalong, see the button to the right. I'm making a dress from 1965, Simplicity 6218 in a red burn-out cotton.

In addition to this, I have joined SWAP 2011 and committed to the usual 11 garments Here is the pile of fabric I pulled from my stash as inspiration. Some of this has already been cut out and may or may not make it into my SWAP, as I have no real plan as yet. I have ordered more fabric and I have more than enough garments planned, so it remains to be seen which ones end up in the collection and indeed, which version I am making. I haven't even decided on whether to do all separates, mostly dresses or a mix. I guess my plan is that I have no plan. We'll see how that turns out.
In the meantime, Happy New Year to you all.

Hi Carole, Happy New Year. I hope that you aren't flooded in. Great pattern for the vintage sewalong. Looking forward to seeing your swap items. Haven't heard from you lately, so I guess you've been busy.

Happy New Year Carol, good to see you again.

Love your choice of the vintage pattern and just love your SWAP fabrics and can't wait to see what you come up with.

So how did the travel wardrobe work out?

Happy New Year Carol, I hope you had a good trip - I am assuming the travel wardrobe was for travel! Did you bring back fabric?
I am looking forward to seeing your SWAP, both of last yours for 2010 were terrific.
