TO Blogger Meet in February

I am going for the TO bloggers meet this Feb 23rd. Are you?

See more details by clicking here.

When I first heard about this meetup, I was thrilled that I get to meet local sewing bloggers. I've read many of their blogs for months, in some cases, years!  So  I was quite excited. Then when the date was announced I felt heartbroken as I had plans for that day and changing it was not possible at that time. But boy! what do you know, the plans got postponed and now I can go!! Yippeee!!

Survived January

I survived January. Phew!!!
  1. No purchases of fabrics or notions made
  2. I bought a veggie peeler as I prefer making my own salad at work than but pre-made salads from the deli-counter which is full of lettuce with very less vegetables. My veggies + peeler cost came lesser than one huge salad that I would have bought otherwise - so I will consider this good!
  3. As for no RTW, I bought winter gloves/ hat and socks; these were in exception list.
  4. I also survived buying a Burda magazine that I've been looking for ages, sold at a very reasonable price, twice!! Thank you Reethi for offering to lend your copy when I need. I really appreciate that generosity.
  5. I survived a trip to IKEA .. I mean, how did that happen? :o 
Those are what I didn't do... So, What have I been doing? 

I have worked on another pants muslin, attended the local sewing group meeting once, went on a 'Sewing with Jean' class at Brampton Sewn Serge!

I also gave Mischief, my 6 yr old daughter, her very first sewing class, twice. We practiced straight lines without thread and then with thread on paper and on fabric for the first class. For the second class, we made an apron together.. She's so EXCITED and so am I! :)

February will be fun as we will be going on a vacation soon... I hope to have fun without much shopping during the vacation.
