It's that time again. Time to assess what I accomplished this month and what I want to do next month. The combination of February being a short month and also having grad student recruits for two of the weekends (including Sunday, my usual day off) means not a lot of progress was made, but I think I did alright with the time constraints I had.
From last month:
1. Thurlows. Make some progress. For realsies. - IN PROGRESS. For this one, I'm deliberately choosing to be loose with my definition of "some progress."
2. Make a
wearable muslin of the Vogue 8379 dress out of black knit and make any
needed pattern adjustments for the next version -NOT EVEN TOUCHED. Honestly, a lot of the motivation for this one kind of depended on the happy warm spring starting. We got 3-4 inches of snow yesterday. Just not dress weather yet.
This is not to say that I didn't get any crafting done whatsoever. I made two fabric infinity scarves from leftover pieces of fabric (woo stashbusting!), and have made lots of progress on a crocheted blanket I'm working on for a friend.
For this month, I'm taking a different approach. This month has seen a lot of family-related emotional turmoil for me, and I'm having a hard time getting motivated to do much of anything. To help combat this, my goal for this month is to try to look better every day. I would say fabulous, but I really mean "like I put in any effort at all". Taking a little time to look a little nicer in the mornings always seems to trickle down into the rest of the day. So my March sewing goal is going to play into this. I want to contribute one garment into my wardrobe that I feel fabulous in. Something I can reach for when I need a pick-me-up and know that it's going to help me through the day. Which is a lot to ask of a garment, but I think a really favorite garment can do that for you. It's not to say that I only want to get one garment done this month, but if that's what it takes, so be it.
I've got a couple more posts in the works and I'll finally be able to take enough pictures since I bit the bullet and got a new memory card, so keep an eye out for that!
