New Year, New Resolution

One of my biggest New Year's resolutions is to sew more. And I have to say that I'm off to a good start. I feel a little guilty because I feel like my resolution should be to spend more time with my kids or exercise more but really all I want to do is sew. Now that the pressure of Christmas gift-giving is off I have a long list of projects waiting for me. Hopefully my desire to sew will last all year and not wither away in a few weeks, cause my list is long! Ever since I got Anna Maria Horner's Handmade Beginnings for my birthday I've been wanting to make the Baby-in-the-hood Jacket. I even had all of the fabric sitting neatly in a stack taunting me every time I sat down in my "sewing room." The week after Christmas I literally hibernated in my sewing room and got busy. I made Sage her jacket and love, love, LOVE how it turned out:
And just because this perfectly describes my daughter:
