The Marbella Dress + A Giveaway

Hello there and welcome my first make of 2015!  Well a majority of this dress was made in 2014 but I finished it in 2015 so I'm just gonna claim it my first make of 2015. Okeedokee?!  It's the Marbella Dress and it's the first pattern from a new independent designer, Kennis Wong of Itch to Stitch.

Good Intentions...

 
While everyone else is pretty much doing their year in review posts or goals for 2015 I'm going to do my own little spin on the subject.  I'm notorious (as I'm sure a lot of you out there are too) for making resolutions or goals for myself and just kinda forgetting about them midway through the year.  Instead of taking a look back at what I did do I want to take a look back at what I said I would do and didn't.  My goal here is to not beat myself up but to reflect on why I didn't accomplish what I set out to and decide if it's something I want to continue to pursue.   I've spent the morning looking back at my posts from the year and have found a handful of goals I talked about and failed to follow through with.  I'm embarrassed to say a few of the posts I don't even remember writing...*buries head in a mound of fabric*

The Cressida Skirt

For me writing a blog post never comes easy.  My fingers aren't dancing away effortlessly at the keyboard while keeping up with the words oozing out of my head.  I spend a majority of my time thinking, thinking, thinking of what to say then once I think I got it out I end up hitting the backspace button to start all over.  I'm having a particularly hard time with this post.  I've been staring at the white space below this picture literally every night this week.  The reason I'm having such a hard time with this post... I absolutely love this pattern but absolutely hate the way it looks on me.  There you have it, nuff said.  What else could I possibly say? End Post.

Perfect Pattern Parcel #7: The Butterfly Sling by Emmaline Patterns

Perfect Pattern Parcel is back with their final parcel of the year.  This time around they have decided to focus on one of my favorite accessories, handbags.  A few months back I was asked if I'd like to participate by making one of the patterns from the parcel.  Take a look at my handbag collection and you'd know why I couldn't refuse.
