Thanks everyone for the birthday wishes!

I haven't done any sewing (apart from taking up Sofie's new jeans), but boy have I been following everyone Else's progress! Some amazing work/ art is being undertaken from all over the world.....and I can sit at home and be part of the fun! So thank you to all you bloggers and posters on boards for inspiration.

In fact I am a bit overwhelmed! So much inspiration - shirt dresses, Chanel jackets, working wardrobes, summer frocks. I want to do it all. Well, I can cross off the summer frocks!

In my last post I talked about setting some goals. I optimistically thought I should be able to do one garment a week, so over the next 3 months I could make 5 jackets (I just love these and I need more practice), 5 skirts/dresses (no pants as I haven't quite mastered these) and 3 tops.

Now, this might sound like too big an ask, but I only work 3 days a week (so 4 days free a week) and my only other hobby is body building (oh dear I have goals for that too!). Oh and watching

I think I need to sit down and work out a plan. One that will increase my working wardrobe options (as per Carolyn ) and matches my new red shoes (see back a couple of posts). And tomorrow I will finish my Marfy miniskirt that has been sitting half done for too, it matches the red shoes!

Awesome! You lift, too?!? I'm into fitness/bodybuilding, too. Right now I can't get too big, I have a show next week in which I'm wearing American Beauty, and that dress looks very weird with big cut arms! Come May, I'm back to heavy lifting.
