Woah. I hit a bit of a roadblock in November.  I sewed only 5 things; half as much as I have been lately. I do love the three tops I sewed though.  And we will say that holidays, illnesses, and massive schoolwork have contributed to the decline this month. 

I've also been discouraged by poor fabric and poor fit.  I need a source with a balance of affordable but quality knits.  I have tons of patterns marked to go, just no suitable fabric and self-doubt in my abilities. 

December is the last month of my resolution totals for this year.  I need to step it up and finish with a bang!

  1. If I made as much as you, I'd be giving myself a pat on the back! I know what you mean about knits though. I have to do most of my fabric shopping online and it's impossible to know what quality the knit is before it arrives. They vary a lot. I find cheap knit very difficult to sew - and I usually don't want to wear the finished garment either!

    1. Thanks Philippa. Those darn knits. I do almost all my shopping online too - not much for selection in my rural area. The variance is crazy! Why can't they just tell me online - this is see through and thin - or this is thicker and wonderful! lol

  2. This is really great to see it all on one page! Very productive. I feel compelled to make something once a week unless it's really involved. Sometimes I try to give myself a break but then I start having withdrawals! Lol

    1. Thanks Shirley Ann, I'm the same, I feel like I need to make at least something once a week or I get the itch really bad! lol.


Your comments really make my day! I read each and every one. Thank you!
