It's winter in Canada.  That means I have no choice but to ditch RTW fashion acquisition and wear my snow pants and spot-me-facedown-in-a-snowbank-neon-orange parka.  Continuously.  Until late March, possibly April.

Doesn't matter.  I am finding solace in sewing my way through a towering fabric stash.  Today's project will be a pair of Kermit the Frog-green velveteen trousers.  Or, as little Jack Flash suggests, Grinch-Green trousers...

Sewing has kept me sane, Flash.  My work can be super-stressful and being able to change my state of mind by focusing on drafting, cutting and stitching has been a lifesaver.

As a bonus, you can find some great instructional videos, blogs and books out there.  The online sewing community is also incredibly supportive.

Almost halfway through January now, who’s caved in and who’s still going strong?

I remain in the resistance movement!

if thrifting and wool socks are safe, I am still 'in' -- but buying nothing,  would kill the only hobby I really have.
