All About the Journey

As a wise man once wrote, "The point of the journey, is not to arrive".1 Well, I keep trying to remember that because it feels like I've been on a number of sewing-related journeys lately but still haven't arrived at my destination. I have three projects going at once now, which is something I've been trying not to do. But, I'm just trying to enjoy the sewing process and stop focusing too much on the completed garment.

Since I don't have much in the way of finished projects to show, I thought I'd post a few teasers of the current WIPs.

    1. I hope I can finish them soon, because I think I'm just as excited to see how they actually turn out.

  2. I can't wait to see your finished plaid project! I have that same plaid from our Vogue trip, and I haven't decided what to make with it yet. It's so special with the two sides that I just can't find any patterns worthy of it!

    1. Since our Vogue trip, I just couldn't stop thinking about this fabric :) I went back a few weeks later to snag some. Hopefully, I've picked a pattern that I'll actually wear, but we'll see....

  3. Your contrasting plaids have me really curious!!!! They look really cool together. I can't wait to get myself situated so I can start sewing again.
