At the very end of 2007 I -just- managed to complete a shirt for my husbands 40th birthday which very inconveniently falls just between Christmas and New Year. This was my first attempt at menswear and I am pretty pleased with how I did. I'll post about this separately when I've taken some more photos. I didn't want to post about it before in case he somehow read about it - as if he might be surfing around sewing sites!!
So for 2008 my sewing goals are;
- Keep up with this blog, recording all my projects successful or otherwise. I think it will be interesting to look back over the year and see what I have achieved.
- Make a piece each month from BWOF, unless I hate everything in an issue obviously
- Make something, anything, from the Patrones magazines my Spanish sister in law has been kindly sending to me.
- Complete a co-ordinating summer mini wardrobe or collection. My sewing tends to be a bit random and while I am not ready for a full blown SWAP this will be a good introduction to better planning.
