SWAP Update

Well the second striped top has shrunk slightly in the laundry, this one in width, making it form fitting rather than loose fitting so still wearable. The plain navy worked OK though, so I'm still OK as far as I can tell.
I've also fixed the split on my previously made item of a denim blue skirt.
 So this now leaves the SWAP technically half done with 5 items still to sew.
 Work is quite hard going and I am now doing the budgetting and legwork regarding buying myself a little house after Easter so sewing is taking a bit of a back seat again.
This will be my 4th move in 5 years, so please bear with me as I am sure the sewing is going to be impacted. Swap may not get finished this year.

The SWAP is a nice goal but take care of yourself first. You have a lot on your plate right now.
The little denim skirt is so cute.

Good luck with the house-buying. After a major life change, it's essential to establish financial security (aka property). I did not buy a home in my own name until I was 50, but with retirement looming, I am so happy I made (and am still making)the financial "sacrifice". And hey, I got a sewing room all of my own into the bargain!!!!
Still thinking of the wardrobe revamp!
