Happy New Year

Purple Red White and Orange Fireworks Display

Happy new year to all of you!. May 2018 be all you want it to be.

I have no resolutions to share with you, I didn’t make any. Also no wrap up of last year, in which I made more garments than I showed on my blog. 2017 was not my best blogging year. I’m not committing to blog more this year, you all know that it all depends on what I sew and how much time is left for blogging. I just will be there now and again and show you what I’m working on.

I’ve put my jacket aside for the moment, I didn’t feel the love for it and I will have a look later this year to see how I feel about it then. That made room in my mind for new things and I’ve traced two garments from Burda magazines. That’s one thing I want to try again this year: use my magazines more!

Hope to see you around on my blog this year! A (late) toast to the online sewing community!

  1. Happy New Year to you, Sigrid! Wise decision to sew more and compute less. However, we will all appreciate when you do blog as your knowledge is so deep and so helpful. Thanks for that.

    1. Thank you Bunny for the kind words. Nice to see you again, I miss your posts (but know that your life is very busy).

  2. Ditto what Bunny said. Your blogs give us such valuable information.

  3. Happy Sew Year heb ik ergens gelezen en dat wens ik je van harte toe. Go with the flow for blogging and sewing.

  4. I agree, thanks for what you find time to share with us. Your blog always inspires me to do better and sew more.

    Happy New Year!

  5. Happy New Year and I appreciate all you share with us, but there is definitely no expectation as to regularity from me, just to see you is enough.

  6. Happy New Year, Sigrid! Your posts are always interesting and inspiring, and I look forward to reading about your projects when you get a chance to blog about them.

  7. Happy New Year! I prefer blogs with irregular but interesting posts over scheduled blogs anytime. Looking forward to see what you'll make whenever you have time to blog.

  8. Happy New Year! Was so pleased to see your post always look forward to them. Appreciate any and all your posts whenever you have time. Happy sewing in 2018 Angela

  9. Happy new year!

    My dear old father's wise advice about resolutions is to resolve to never make a resolution.

    I follow that advice to this day. He and I drink a toast to each other's wisdom on this point, every year.

  10. Happy New Year, Sigrid! I always look forward to seeing what you're up to, sewing wise, and at the same time I totally understand your priorities: sewing comes first, as it should.

  11. I have really enjoyed your blog this year, Sigrid. Happy new year!


Comments are very much appreciated! I read all of them, try to answer the questions but don't always have time to react to comments.
