New intentions

While I was toying with the idea of joining in the swap, even made a preliminary plan, I just don't have the time to do it. The kids are on summer holidays, the house needs decluttering (that is a constant battle) and redecorating, we are fostering a husky (so now we have two) and before too long I will be back to studying for my degree.

There are just not enough hours in the day to do everything. So, while not doing a swap, I have decided there are some sewing related goals I need to set for the coming year. I have lost a little weight with hopefully more to follow and I don't have any TNT's that fit.

My needs are simple as I am a sahm/student with four boys who spends all her time in casual clothing. I have no issue buying crop pants and jeans that fit, thank goodness as I live in them, but tops are another issue. Being a D cup means most tank tops and t-shirts pull and point to where you least want extra attention.

In light of that, this year will be about getting back to the basics and developing some new TNT patterns. I don't need anything fancy just the basics will do fine - a tank or camisole, a shell top, t-shirt, button up shirt and perhaps a lightweight jacket. It might not seem like a big goal to many but for me (in light of time constraints) will be a challenge.

Have you set any sewing related goals this year? If so please share ...
