Project interrupted!

I had finally finished altering M5471. Began to layout the pattern on my fabric. I stopped laying out to check to see if I had all my supplies ( I know backwards), when I discovered that I did not have the right size machine needles. Last week things have been occuring that way. It got me to realize that I have to do better. So now I am following Adrienne's lead and taking time to make some new goals or resolutions if you like. I will list them next time I post because I want to really focus on them and make some personal assessments. I want the new year to many new things. Until next time...

Merrry Christmas!!!!!!!!!

Can I do it!

I am a sloooow sewer. I procrastinate. I do everything but sew. Like right now I am typing this when my mind is telling me to get in there and sew. Why can't I be like Erica B., and Tany. I want to be like them. Well my challenge for this week is to finally finish altering and sewing M5471 in time for my birthday lunch Thursday. I think I can, I think I can.......:-)
