Cleansing My "Sewing" Palate - 2016 The Next Course

These past few weeks I've thought long and hard about where I'll go from here.  That is, what is the next chapter in my sewing experience? What are my hopes for a great year of sewing in 2016?   Of course, I read a few "end of the year" reviews and resolutions, which for a moment motivated me to do the same.  But I digressed and thought to cleanse my palate instead.  This phase is associated with eating a meal.  To cleanse the palate is to remove lingering flavors from the mouth so that the next course may be enjoyed with a fresh perspective.

That's how I'm feeling about the my next chapter in sewing.  I would like to clean my palate in preparation for a fresh perspective.  No new year's resolution, no promises to review more, or review more regularly.  Just a fresh start to do better.

Of course, I have a few projects already in the works.  I can promise to post those reviews soon as I have finished them and taken the pictures.  Next up, my review on McCall 7099, Jumpsuit.

At the end of this month, I will be moving.  My big search for a new home has come to an end, and I am happily closing tomorrow.  This has been a dream of mine for several years now.  Blessed to realize my dream.

Happy Sewing!

  4. Congratulations on your new home! How exciting! I can't believe you are able to sew anything as moving is so demanding particularly if a sale is involved. I wish you the best and hope you manage a nice sewing space in your new digs.
