First post-I think I'm crazy for doing this............

OK, I'm not very good at this, I am sure.  My primary purpose is to start tracking all of the sewing I do for the upcoming year.  Maybe use it as a tool to help plan, so I am not rushing at the last minute.

About me....Not very exciting.  I am married and a mom to a 15 yo, and currently a SAHM.  My daughter is involved in figure skating, and I make most of her skating wardrobe, except for synchro.  My name came from her when I got my webkinz account, and has stuck.  While I make most of her skating stuff, I would rather be making smocked dresses.  At 15, she doesn't want many of those  :)

My first goal is to get the basement/sewing room cleaned up and organized.  Then to keep it that way.  February is a big competition month, with the ISI Winter Classic being held locally.  I currently have 22 yards of lycra waiting to be transformed for that, with more to order.  Need to get busy and organized.  I have several other things planned or in progress that I want to complete as well.

Once I get the sewing room cleaned up, I will post pictures.  It needs curtains, maybe I should add that to the list as well.   

I just finished 5 sets of pjs, 2 for real people, 3 for dolls.  Axelgirl is babysitting for my cousins daughter-Mini axelgirl, tonight, so they have matching pj pants and embroidered t-shirts.  Then there is matching sets for Axeldolly, and mini axelgirls bitty twins.  I will try and get pictures, or have her take some tonight.
