This year seems to be starting out a little slow and a lot cold. I’ve been working on a few behind the scenes type projects and am looking forward to at least getting to be outside without windchill warnings. Lucky for me I get to go hang out at a retreat at the new Stitch Supply Co. this weekend (yay for planning ahead!). Of course I have stage fright about which projects I should bring along, but hopefully I’ll get my act together sooner than later. If you’re local to the Eau Claire area, Jeni and I are each doing a little book signing and trunk show as part of Ann’s Grand Opening Ceremony on Thursday afternoon. Stop by if you’re around!
So for now I’m sharing another fun sample made using Leah Duncan’s upcoming fabric collection, Lore. I made this Zip Top Tote along with the Market Bag. It’s been fun to sew with her new collection, those greens always looks so appealing this time of year! It’s always a pleasure to play around with fabrics and patterns. So many possibilities to explore.
I’ve been toying around with making a sort of must-sew list for me this year. I had previously thrown away a list that I used to have, it was way too long and kind of made me feel like I wasn’t accomplishing much. So I threw it and it’s been great ever since. But maybe a mini list or monthly lists might be fun?
How’s your January going? Do you feel ambitious, too? or maybe you’d rather crawl back under the covers? I think I’d like to pick both!
