Though I only started sewing for 2013 close to the end of the month of January, I managed to squeeze in seven projects from seven different sewing books that have, until now, laid dormant on my bookshelf, some for a few years already! By far, my favourite of the bunch is the Red Riding Hood, it’s adorable and I just can’t wait to see it on my five year old niece! The one project that has gotten the most use so far is the Slipcover I made for my sewing stool.
Funnily enough, my husband got all giddy over the Baby Kimono, I think his biological clock might be ticking! However, he does loves his new Necktie, which I made specifically for the night we head out to see the Cirque de Soleil show Love at the MGM Mirage next month in Las Vegas.
Did I mention my plans to make a “micro-quilt” of all the projects I complete this year? I wanted to create one-per-month, but I might just have to focus on sewing what I’ll call a “remind-me-what-I-made” quilt whenever I feel I have enough pieces.
