Happy new year !!! Here is to 2013 !!!

So, it's 2013 already !! Wow !!! Can you believe how quickly this year has flown by ?!?

So, Mr P and I stayed in last night and to be honest I was pleased for the lack of hangover. Instead of going out I toasted the new year by sewing ! Yesterday I started and finished another Gertie pencil skirt. I made a few changes after my last one and I'm super happy with the results.

As an aside when I was trawling the net, I found a tutorial from the lovely Gertie demonstrating the boning of the curved waistband on the very skirt that she includes in her book. I recognise that red fabric anywhere :))

So here is the link to Gerties tutorial.


Soooo anyway that's now 5 projects to post lol. New Years resolution, take some finished objects 
pictures !!

So to tally what I need to post (for my own reminder !!)
2 x Gertie pencil skirts
2 x banksia tops
1 x Frankenstein skirt

In other news I'm not really making any resolutions but I'm going to keep a jar and everytime something
good happens I'm going to note it and put it in my jar :() then instead of feeling disappointed with 
failed resolutions - I'll feel happy to remember all the good times I've had when I look in my jar this
time next year !!!

Well I wish you all a happy and prosperous new year, full of happiness, health and love
