New Year...New Challenges!

I know we are almost midway into the first month of this Happy New Year of 2017, but I would be remiss if I did not start somewhere. So, I put my sewing aside for a "good" second to get the year started on a good note ( no pun intended). So, again, HAPPY NEW YEAR to you all!
I have to be honest, it is really hard sometimes finding the time to write a post. I guess that might be evident with my last post, which clearly you can see I never concluded what I started with the "Twelve Months of Sewing and Crafting!". I wrote two (2) posts before Christmas and that was "all she wrote". But, let's let the past be the past, shall we? I mean new year, new opportunities. So, I'm taking advantage of this fresh start and moving forward.
On that note, I created my first garment of the year, actually it was the second garment of the year, but it was for me to wear.  I spend the majority of my days sewing for others. So, it was my turn. And, the January "Fabric Resolution" challenge is just the thing to get me to sew more for me. The Fabric Resolution challenge is our second annual stash-busting challenge. And, by OUR I mean the Sew Much Talent/Pericrafters group challenge. We, successfully, completed a new and different challenge each month last year. Each challenge pulled many out of their creative slumps, while others captured their sew-jo back. Yet, many of us either learned new skills or discovered skills and talents that laid dormant within our very being. Whatever the case, we all are the better for it. We have expanded our wardrobes or helped expand the wardrobes of dear family members in some way. Now, it's time to do it again, yaay!! We already in week two of this challenge--- pants and skirts. I have completed my second garment, my S1283 pants. More on those later.
I must say, I am happy to be writing my first post of the 2017 year. I pray this year will prove to be full of sewing and creativity like you've never seen before. May you learn new skills, rebirth dormant talents, and truly hope you get to meet new sewing buddies.
Before this post gets any longer, I leave you with my Instagram post today, "WBW--Way Back Wednesday" .
