But this is what I must endure here in sunny Florida............
Our Christmas was a good one. Lots of smiles and laughs and food and presents. We drove to my mother's house for Christmas Eve, Christmas with the kids on Sunday morning before Church then to Dear Hubby's family after Church. It was a busy weekend.
I don't usually make New Year resolutions. But I do make a list at the beginning of every month of things I hope to accomplish that month. Sometimes they get completed and sometimes they either get erased or moved over to the next month. It's my way to keep life a little organized.
Daughter in law bought me these vintage pattern notebooks for Christmas. They are the best! (She LOVED ALL the Pioneer Woman stuff I got her!)
Looking back through my post of 2016, I have a few favorite items I sewed and wear regularly.
In January 2016 I made this skirt and jacket. It's my go-to cold weather outfit. Now I know it's only cold here a day or two, but this is the warmest things I own!
I also made the Simplicity 1072 and even though it's too big, I wear it. I really should make another one.
I just wore this dress to Church for Christmas. It was 85 degrees and this had short sleeves! I have worn this one numerous time this past year. I need to make another version.
This skirt is a staple in my closet too. I've worn it almost as much as the shirt above!
My favorite nightgown and my favorite robe. I wear them daily.
My ultimate favorite outfit is this one! When Dear Hubby fell from our roof, I wore this dress and cardigan for three days. Not a wrinkle! No one ever knew I slept in it for two nights! It's cool when it's hot outside. It's not to casual, not too formal. The PERFECT outfit!
It seems like I like purple. I never noticed how much purple I have. Maybe that's my color.....
I hope that my sewing this coming year is as productive as the past year has been and that I will continue to learn new techniques and grow in sewing and fitting. I am looking forward to a year full of inspirations from both my sewing friends and blog friends.
I wish you a Happy, Healthy & Prosperous New Year!
Until next time.............
