2015 was an interesting year for me. I can't think of the right word. Transitional? Trans-formative? Pivotal? I have had a stitching blog for years and started this blog simply because I was interested in trying my hand at sewing my own clothes, hence I was literally going to "hang" each outfit into my "Closet full of Posies".
But Life has a way of showing you new paths. My interest in sewing took off with Me-Made-May-2015, which was off set by the fact that my stitching was giving me literally "a pain in the neck". After May, my sewing continued to take off and it was so much fun. I loved sewing my own clothes! I won't bore you with my favourite makes from last year but one thing did really stand out for me and that was finding a favourite silhouette. Define it however you will - it's comfy and highly wearable.
first attempt at the Hemlock tee, which was a bit too short but has now turned into a great dress since I found I had some extra fabric. I have been wearing this a lot this fall (please excuse all the wrinkles).

My "big" plans this year is to really learn more knitting skills - fair isle, socks, vest, cardigan. Meanwhile I am 'just' knitting along. I did this simple garter stitch shawl using 2 skeins of 100% merino wool.
Nordic wind shawl soon as I now have yarn, which I purchased at my first ever stand-in-line yarn sale!
I don't think I've ever put myself in a stand-in-line for a sale situation, ever, but for yarn, I did! That's how bad I've been infected. I'll write more next time.
Oh yeah, a big end of year accomplishment - getting this baby to bloom!
