New goals for 2009

I don't make new year resolutions, cant recall ever doing so, maybe this is though.

a couple years ago i decided i would sit down and make a list of things i wanted to do in the next year (sounds like a resolution). i would cross these off as i achieved each. i guess i'll make public a few things i can think of now that i want to do in 2009 and just add as the year goes on.

1. Learn to make basic childrens clothes (lucy dress)      DONE
2. Learn to use pleater and make bishop dresses
3. start playing tennis again                                                 DOING
4. enjoy life                                                                              DOING
5. compliment people more often (totally subjective goal but working so far)
6. Read a Beethoven biography                                            IN PROGRESS
7. Finish MLK's autobiography                                             IN PROGRESS
8. Finish the Ethics for the New Millenium book               IN PROGRESS
9. Create craft space that is organized                                

New Sewing Class-Beginner

I just started a new sewing class this week where I will learn some basic information about working with patterns and I will make a Lucy dress and a bubble! I plan on doing a reversible Lucy dress but not bubble. The class is 4 weeks long so it will be a bit till I can show some pictures but I will certainly write about any trials, tubulations, and successes on the way there!

oh frustrating, i cant find pics of the patterns im using on the internet, i guess i will take pictures of the packages and put them up tomorrow.

oh and thanks lauren for letting me finish smocking that dress for you, it is going to be very relaxing and therapeutic to me!

New keychains up in the etsy store

I finally made the effort to take a picture of these and upload them to the etsy site. Maybe someone will buy them.
I am seriously contemplating putting up for sale 3 of the 5 funky patchwork vintage scarves I have made....I'll post here later and see if I get any interest.
