You have probably heard of Goodbye Valentino’s RTW Fast. Cuz you are just cool like that.
I thought about participating last year, but you know, sometimes you just can’t commit, amiright? 😉
For 2015, I am all in. Gonna officially take the plunge.Â I donâ€™t know about all youÂ other RTW Faster-types, but I definitely have some exclusions.
Shoes. I have enough tools and mess in my house with all my sewing paraphernalia, and I sure donâ€™t need to learn cobblering. Only.So.Much.Time.Remaining!
Lingerie. Can you spell BOR-ring? I like to sew tailored shirts, people, and this year my goals are to ratchet up my coat tailoring skills and try my hand at menâ€™s dress slacks. Panties? Pffft. I can envision I might try making them some day, because it IS fun to whip out a quick project now and again, but it is so far down my I-want-to-sew-list it may never surface. And I donâ€™t really have any trouble getting bras to fit properly, so that effort also just doesnâ€™t provide sufficient return on time investment. I know, loads of you out there disagree with me. That’s OK. We can still be friends. 😉
Sweaters. KnitNBee, I bow to you, and the many other great knitters out there. I know how to knit, but donâ€™t do much of it anymore. I already have enough arthritis in my hands to cause discomfort, and I need to save my hand energy for sewing and gardening. On that note, I am starting to think about whichÂ varieties of edible greens I should plant in the next month or twoâ€¦we have had a mild winter here in the PNW. Gardening time!
