So how is the garment sewing going? Umm... well... You see, it's like this...
I decided I needed to join in with a like-minded group. Kat, over at Modern Vintage Cupcakes, has a roundup of tons of sewing challenges. Why not let someone else have a say in my garment-sewing endeavor? I have a hard time narrowing my focus and deciding on the next thing to work on. Plus, joining a challenge lets me be part of a community of sewists working toward a common goal. I thought this would be the motivation I needed.
All set to go with the New Year = New Skill listing (from The Monthly Stitch) for January. Who doesn't love learning new skills? My new skill was going to be: sew a coat. I have pattern, lovely wool fabric, lining and notions.

Four books later, I'm still studying up. (Plan. Plan some more. Daydream. Keep planning...)
Meanwhile, an offhand comment from Sweetie about how much she hates her current bathrobe, and I am off in a different direction. Wish I could say I whipped that baby out, but it's going more slowly than I would have liked.

Hope I can finish something garment-ish in the month of January. Then I can at least say I am "participating" in the Make a Garment a Month ongoing challenge.
I am so inspired by the posts of people who finish things. I wanna be like that!
