this year is about me taking the time to be me. Im halving the content of our house, Im making the space for us, to be us.
I'm also partaking in Carolyn's sensational challenge!!!
I love it, I'm so in with bells and stuff, hehe.

For 2010 I thought that it would be great for us who sew to be challenged a little or a lot- depending on what takes your interest.
So each month I will be posting a challenge. Each month you (the blogger) can sign up for the challenge. It would be fun to blog about your challenge thought the month, but its not essential
You can participate each month, or just for one month, depending on what your life is throwing at you at the time.
The first sign up will be in the first (starting the 1st) of each month, and ‘presenting’ your projects will be in the last week of each month. (again there are no rules)
But remember… it is to challenge you. So if you think “oh no I cant insert zips” maybe that’s the month that you sign up so that you can learn.
At the end of the month blog your project, even if its still a WIP. There will also be a flickr group (WIP) so that you can scroll through projects quickly- or if you want to join in but dont have a blog.
I will try and include free patterns and tutorials to help you along your way. Im still learning too!
There will also be some free giveaways at random times!
The challenges are:
January: something for me
February: something in knit
April: something lined
May: enclosed zip
June something self designed or drafted.
July: something with pleats
August: hand embroidery/ smocking
October: refashioned (visit your op-shop and create something new!)
November: Something for the Christmas tree
December: sharpen your skills on one of the challenges!
