Hey, mom…

I’m making you a coat. It’s a shop project so it has to be done in a couple of weeks. So you should really pop by.

Good morning, 2018

I don’t know what you’ll hold except more of the same, which is mostly a good thing. I’d like to make resolutions—get more exercise, eat better, but the fact is I’ll probably just muddle along trying to keep my head above water. If I can keep the fabric stash from growing too much that’d be good. Not out of guilt, but out of the practicality of my sewing space. Also I need to figure out how to fit some more tabletop space down there.

The thing that’s pissing me off the most is a mound of old jeans that need mending/modifying/scrapping. I’d like to make it go away.

Right now I only want to make cozy comfy things. That’s ok and I really do have a fair bit of suitable fabric.

I’m on holiday right now so I wish I were sewing, but my brother and his wife are here from Australia, which hasn’t happened in four years. So we cleaned up the basement suite, including putting a bed in the middle of my sewing room, and handed it over to them. I was threatening to put my machines in the dining room but I didn’t actually do it. So instead of sewing, I’m visiting with them or playing video games with my husband. It’s not a bad way to spend a holiday.
