Goodbye 2020, Hello 2021!

Can you believe that it will be 2021 soon? 2020 has definitely been a year. I’ve been ready for a while to close the chapter on 2020.

I wanted to write a blog post about my top hits and misses of the year, but when I look back at my sewing projects – I really didn’t get much sewing done actually.

Despite what was happening in the world, I’ve been very conflicted with my blog. I started to get back into crafting the last few months. It has been a nice break from sewing while still remaining creative. I’m conflicted because I actually started a new Instagram and Blog account for my crafting projects. I did this because the vibe on my sewing account was becoming more and more negative as the year progressed and I wanted to see more positivity in my sewing and crafting adventures. I often use Instagram to seek inspiration or ideas for my own projects. Now, I haven’t published my crafting blog to go live yet and I’m not too sure when or if I will. Is it possible to work at 2 blogs and keep up with the both of them? That answer I’m not too sure about.

Lets look ahead to 2021!

I decided to take full advantage of some of the amazing Black Friday sewing sales. I bought a few new patterns – from Independent Companies that I have never tried before and I also purchased a bra kit from Emerald Erin. My Black Friday purchases have really influenced my Make 9 for 2021.

Starting at the top left:

  • Double Zip Hoodie – Millicent Joy Sewing Patterns
  • Cindy Jean Jacket – Style Arc
  • Around The Block Hoodie – Ellie and Mac Sewing Patterns

Have you sewn any of these patterns? If so, I’d love to hear which ones!

Love and miss you VERY MUCH dad! – Me
