Self-Stitched-September '11 = epic fail

Well, maybe epic fail is overstating it a bit, but my self-stitched month rather deflated about two thirds of the way through, rather like a badly baked soufflé (sorry, I've just been watching the Great British Bake-Off).

So excuses: not enough "transition" items, super busy month with lots of travelling and lots of contrasts (smart wedding followed by hiking in drizzle anyone?), and having time-management issues (hmm, I think I'll adapt a pattern and make a dress to wear to a wedding in three days. Yeah). Oh well, many lessons have been learned, not least that I need to remember I don't do "fast" sewing - if I want to make more stuff, I need to plan more - and knuckle down and do more too!

Having said that I do have a few new things to show you, and a couple of things in progress too - however, these will have to wait, and this post will be sadly photo-free, as I'm busy busy busy getting ready to go to New York for a week! Woo! I really can't wait... (And of course I've printed off my guides to the Garment District :)


  1. I love the Great British Bake Off, and it always makes me want to bake!

  2. New York! Have a good time in the garment district. *sigh*
