So since I need to construct another wardrobe *sigh* I want to add some of that joy and exploration back into my sewing and my closet. While there will be basics - hey I need new closer fitting black, navy and gray suits - I will add some fun and funky pieces to go along with them.
I also want to sew some complicated, unusual pieces that really are me. I wear more classic silhouettes for work but personally I look more like this, this or this. I feel like I need to stretch my sewing wings.
Also, in years past, I've bought and shared alot of fabric here. I don't know if you've been paying attention but last year and fo sho this year there will be a lot less fabric being bought around here. I really need to delve deeply into the fabric collection and play with some of the beauties shelved there.
Today, I opened the curtains to the main section of the fabric collection because I was looking for some black fabric...and it was awesome touching some of those gorgeous pieces. So I apologize up front that many of the items that get made this year will be from "stashed" fabric.
I want my sewing journey this year to be a combination of many different things...so erase last year from your memories...because this year is going to be vastly different and I'm sooooooo excited about it!

Finally, I'm headed to The Sewing and Stitchery Expo in Pullayup this week. I will be there for the weekend - Saturday and Sunday - so if anyone is around, I would love to meet up! I will be with my girl Gaylen (GMarie) so leave a message on the blog or at my email and I will try to meet up with you.

I'm not taking any classes but I'm so thrilled to be going that I don't know what to do! Seriously, sewing bucket list adventures here! This means there will be no posting here this weekend but I hope to do a recap when I return...or you can follow my adventures on Instagram. I will be taking pictures of everything and everyone in sight and posting to Instagram. Did I say I was excited! Seriously excited!!!!
