I must admit dear readers, that I am quite the planner. I love to make lists, jot down ideas, and have the perfect plan in place. I must also admit that I absolutely terrible at sticking to all of the plans that I make. I can have a plan for every piece of fabric I own, and in the end maybe one piece of fabric will have followed the path I set forth for it in the original plan. Regardless of the fact that I never stick to my lists, I still enjoy making them for some odd reason.
Lately though I have been thinking a lot about my fall and winter sewing. I think it would be wise to at least have a vague idea of what I want to sew for the upcoming seasons. You see, I have been entertaining the crazy idea of making a coat this winter. Nothing too detailed or exciting, but just a simple coat that doesn't need three months worth of tailoring and ten miles of thread to pad stitch with. I suppose my recent acquisition of some wool is to blame for this sudden desire. I have also came to the realization that if I truly wish to make a coat, I am going to have to put some forethought into it if I want to finish it while it's still cold out. Don't get your hopes up dear readers, since this may not be one of my fantasy projects that comes to fruition anytime soon.
When I am not day dreaming about sewing a coat, I've been dreaming about sewing pieces to match things that are already in my wardrobe. I have lots of cute jackets and the like that I just don't seem to own the "perfect" shirt to accompany. It would be so amazing to reach into the closet, pull out a jacket, and know that there are coordinating pieces to match. So, I suppose my other tentative sewing plan is to make pieces to match the loners in my closet.
Oh, so many plans and so little time! So, readers, I want to hear from you. Do you plan your sewing or do your prefer to wing it? Do you make lists and rarely stick to them like me? Are you a meticulous planner who already knows what they'll be sewing in 2012? I want to hear your lovely thoughts!
