I had today left to finish up the sewing projects that are part of SWAP 2020 (an online long-term challenge, to sew an 11 piece coordinated wardrobe, which started on Dec 26 last year). I am the coordinator this year. Since this is probably my last year* participating in that particular challenge, and since I volunteered to coordinate it... I want to do it well, and also hopefully complete the challenge myself, as I set out to do last December.
Didn't plan on a pandemic sapping all my mojo. I am
I am, however, very pleased with what I did sew for SWAP this year; all the garments I made went into immediate rotation in my everyday wardrobe: grey wool capelet, black rain capelet, grey linen pinafore, black/grey gingham flannel shirt, grey cloud collar top, grey knit leggings, light blue horses print blouse, teal floral blouse, and the turquoise/teal cotton/linen pinafore.
* My long range plan for years has been to create enough clothing that I can go a week between doing laundry, which I have finally achieved. I now no longer need to sew as many garments for myself, but rather to sew to replace things that get too worn to refurbish (yes I do mend my clothing) which will allow me to sew more "slowly", and to take on some other more complicated projects to fill in certain voids (raincoat I am looking at you!, ditto canvas chore coat!!)
Kanopy, the public library film access site, has the film Worlds of Ursula LeGuin that I really wanted to see last year! Movie night soon!!

today's gratitude - I have enough sense to know when to stop. At least some of the time, and more now than when I was younger.
