'Garment' A Month and cuuuute tape measure

There's a proliferation of 'garment' A Month type topics on Stitchers Guild. I've decided to join in with Jacket A Month, Top A Month and Pants A Month, but leave the others well alone.
If I manage 12 in any category than that'd be great but I'm not too concerned about actually completing them, I'm using it more as a self pacing exercise to sew a balance of items for my wardrobe. For my definitions, jackets include cardigan type jackets as well, tops are any tops but mostly knit ones, and pants are any pants including PJs, waterproofs, walking trousers etc.

My lovely non sewing friend E was over yesterday and we went out for lunch and exchanged Christmas gifts. Part of mine was this adorable little tape measure. It's sooooo cute and has a recessed button to retract the tape. Isn't it lovely! I wouldn't have ever bought it for myself, thinking it somehow frivolous, but I adore it.

sweet gift - good luck with all your sew along's - if I manage to do the 12 shirts I will pat myself on my back.

What a delightful gift from a nonsewing friend.

Have fun in the garment a month (PAM, TAM, etc.). I am only doing the shirt and top ones and if I don't meet the required numbers, well I am not worrying about it. If I make it, then, like Pauline, I will pat myself on the back.

'Non-sewing-friend' sounds like she might be a convert soon - she found the perfect gift for you.
As for the 'A-Month' sewalongs, they certainly do motivate you to get a wiggle along. I put my hand for the the top and shirt ones and the honeymoon period is still in full swing. Will this still be the case in 12 months time....fingers crossed!!!
