2019 A Year Ahead

So here I sit on January 1st 2019! 2019! Where in the world did 2018 go?

Like many people I had plans for 2018 and then life went on it's own course. I didn't get much sewing done last year. I layered and quilted my Doctor Who quilt but it still doesn't have binding. In May, I made a quick and easy circle skirt out of a scuba knit fabric with an thick elastic waist band. Then in June I started working on a linen shirt dress and it's still unfinished I have to make the sleeves and do all that finishing work.

My first goal for 2019 is to finish up projects that are incomplete. Then I plan on sewing more clothing for myself. I've been rather disappointed in the fit or quality most clothes lately. I've bought some new jeans that start out the day fitting well but by the mid-point of my work shift I end up spending an inordinate amount of time pulling them back up.

I bought a brand new serger during those Black Friday deals. I didn't buy a fancy one; it's just the Singer ProFinish. One of the first projects I'd love to work on is the Grandpa Cardi from Patterns for Pirates.
