January In Pictures








January is a busy month in most southern hemisphere Mum's annual calendar because it means summer school holidays, six weeks of no lunches, no timetables and niggly bored kids  picnics and holidays in the summer sun.  This January we managed to squeeze in a camping trip, sold our beloved caravan, bought a new one. Sadly we also had to farewell my childrens grandfather, my father in law who passed away mid month.  It has certainly been a rollercoaster month and my attention span and available time was such that sewing didn't get much of a look in.  When I look back at what I have achieved though, I am a little surprised at the number of items I have completed.

This year, while still tracking my sewing purchases for myself, I have also decided to add the rtw purchases I make to my tally as well.  Now, I know I don't buy much rtw any more but it will be interesting to see what actually does creep into my wardrobe.

  1. I love that striped dress. Very nice! The underwear set looks very professional. I need to work up the courage to try that sometime, they are definitely expensive to buy!

  2. Sorry to hear about your loss. January is a busy month for us too.
    You've done a great job getting all of these clothes made too. I love the stripe dress the most. Your lingerie looks very RTW.

  3. I wish I could sew up garments as fast as you manage too!!
    My January ended up being a little more crazy that I was planning on as well.
