Everything changes and everything stays the same.
There was a time when it was exciting for children to stay up past midnight to see the New Year in, nowadays, most of the parents we know (and are) are in bed long before their children. Our traditional NYE’s celebration sharing with friends changed this year too. Instead, we had a evening with different friends – some we have known for more than 30 years – reminiscing, remembering, celebrating……..and the children go off and do their own thing.
On the other hand, my end of year sewing antics never change. Instead of a review of 2014, I’m doing a review of my end of years’ creations. I seem to go a little crazy by mid-December and sew things that I would otherwise never even contemplate at any other time of the year.
On the first year of blogging I sewed a head to toe ensemble…
One pair of pleather Clovers, one fake fur coat and a matching jersey cowl neck top.
On the second year of blogging, I sewed a full-length skirt:
One Vogue Ralph Rucci, one Kwik Sew blouse…and a little black and blue Chanel.
On the third year of blogging I changed from black to red…
One 1980s backless wiggle long dress.
In my fourth year of blogging I really sewed a storm…..
Two pair of trousers, two sleeveless tops, one long skirt, one fur coat, one long dress and a matching handbag!
No partridges in pear trees though – Mmmmmm, maybe next year……….Oooops, this year!
