Maybe unlucky for some, but this (next) year I’m really going to try hard and complete the Sewing With a Plan thing going on over at Stitchers’ guild.
While all these enthusiastic sewers were posting their patterns and fabrics and ideas, I hadn’t a clue even where to start.
The 2013 SWAP is supposed to be easier than previous years’:
Two distinct collections – 4 or 5 pieces in each one.
One bridging garment to tie the two collections together.
About 11 garments in total.
Sewing starts on the 26th Dec and finishes some time in the spring. I haven’t got as far as the finish date yet, seeing as I was having difficulty just getting started!
Ordinarily, sewing 11 things in three to four months would not be a major issue, but when you have to plan, organise and then stick to the schedule – it becomes a very daunting task.
I had a breakthrough last weekend. This is what materialised in my head during church on Sunday.
Perhaps divine inspiration, but first I tackled the colour scheme.
