Once again – if you aren’t into these posts… that’s OK, I just find them interesting to think about… so I blog them for me.
I think these two are the most obvious misses, I was not pleased when I blogged them – and time has not improved them.
Some things I’ve worn more than others but I don’t rate my clothes as misses if I’ve learnt something from them. Sewing for me isn’t always about ‘the wearing’, a significant part is about purely creativity, experimentation and escapism.
You can see all my makes on the Made-by-me 2014 page which I’ve just created.
Professionally, I’ve worked relentlessly this year and I’m exhausted. I’d love to say in 2015 I’ll find a better ‘life-work balance’ but I believe there is no such thing.
I’ve actually edited the heck out of this post and decided not to say much ‘personal’ at all. It’s not for here.
I’ve decided I’m not really a sewing goal type. I prefer to listen to my squirrels as that’s where the inspiration lies.
There are some things I’d like to sew but if I don’t, I don’t. That’s ok.
I’d like to sew a proper tutu for my daughter. Maybe I will. Maybe I won’t.
I’d like to try swimwear. Maybe I will. Maybe I won’t.
I’d like to find the time to exercise again – I started out the year fit & strong… and along the way work and life consumed me. I want to be back there again, I miss my figure, my strength and my legs (vain but true – I’m ok with that too). Maybe I will. Maybe I won’t.
I’m not going to chain myself to any goals or beat myself up about them if other stuff comes along. It doesn’t matter. That’s life. I don’t think the future of humanity depends on it. That’s ok.
Merry Christmas & a happy and safe New Year to you and yours.
Thank you to the amazing people in my life and the fabulous people that have come into my life via this blog.
