I Guess They Call This Progress

I narrowly met my no-pattern sewing goal for December/January by sewing a full-length t-shirt dress in a random knit fabric I had lying around It turned out well and I created a pattern to use for future versions. I was feeling so successful that the next day I started recreating a skirt I’ve had for several years. I haven’t finished that yet, but it shouldn’t take too long.

I finished knitting the shawl I started last summer during a moment of inspiration (get it done before winter!). It is gorgeous and I need to take pictures of it once it’s blocked (or decide not to block it). I also finished a quick cowl I started recently as well.

I fell off the exercise wagon in December and only really exercised twice, though I did exercise regularly. That’s a bummer because I’ve been doing so well at exercising twice a week for the last several years. This YEAR will be better.

I connected with a gentleman at work, and we had a date and have another one scheduled later this week. He’s a delightful combination of exciting and comfortable and I’m looking forward to getting to know him better.
