Sewing strategies Part1

I’m back!! I can’t believe that I last posted in August…more than 7 months?! Its just been so manic around here…new jobs for both of us, house jobs needing to be done, the standard Christmas mayhem (12 people crammed into my parents house) and a 2 week trip to India with my mum…phew!

So I’ve just not had the time to get any sewing done, despite a growing list of projects that I cannot wait to start. I even have a few projects already cut out and ready to go…I just need some more time!

Though I haven’t been sewing, I don’t seem to have let that hold me back on the fabric purchases, so my fabric stash is going a bit wild!! So, in this post I am going to decide upon which fabric to use for which pattern so I have a plan for my sewing.

I have had to split this post into two…thanks to the amount of fabric in my stash!!

  1. I’m not sure my first comment has gone through, sorry if there will be two 🙂

    That’s quite an ambitious list, so good luck with it!
    Many of these patterns are on my to-sew list too and your fabric choices are really cool. I want to see how these will turn out, so will keep an eye on your blog 🙂
