an elderly woman(that's me)joined 262 sewists (at last count) in a journey to sew all their clothes. That means no store bought clothes except underwear, socks, and shoes from 1/1/14 until 12/31/14. The amazing Sarah of the blog Goodbyevalentino organized this journey.
I probably will sew my panties also, since I like the way mine fit so much better than RTW. This RTW fast is my only goal for 2014. As part of this goal, I will take pictures of every garment I sew and write a blog post before removing the garment from my sewing list. Crossing a garment off my list is almost as much fun as sewing. Expect to hear from me a lot more this year!
The work on my goal will be off to a slow start. I managed to trip over a trash can while cleaning up Christmas dinner and broke my right arm. That means no writing, driving, or knitting. I can sew and type although I'm slow. My left hand is getting a good workout! To add to my challenges, I upgraded my McAffee security progam which messed with my computer big time. I managed to fix most of the problems, but my picture file is floating around somewhere. I don't want to add any more pictures until I know I can find them. I'll either figure it out this weekend or have DH drive me to my favorite computer geek shop.
I'm a retired counselor and CPA. Yep, I had two careers. I loved both of them and they certainly helped get my 3 children through college. If I can't decide what to do or buy, I usually do both. That personality characteristic explains the reason why I'm always very busy and the cupboards are overflowing with wonderful stuff. Fortunately, there is only one man in life. I'm an expert fabric and pattern purchaser. I love to sew!! I hope to sew half of the things that I design in my head. Oh, yes -- I hope to live a long, long life.
