Happy New Year

I am very excited for a new year to begin.  2010 was a rough year for my family and while we had some ups we had lots of down so I am welcoming a new year with open arms and hoping that it will be more positive for everyone (and yes I mean everyone everywhere).  I have made some personal commitments to myself.  I want to put aside a half an hour a day for myself.  Half an hour to sew, exercise, or maybe even take a belly dancing class.  I already started my 1/2 hour a day by working on a muslin of the Simplicity 4044 40's pants.  Although let me say I am not sure if I like the waist line on this one I think I prefer a waistband so we will see when the muslin is finished if I should have opted for the Simplicity 3688 but since I started the muslin I think I will follow through and finish before making a final judgement but I am just not sure that scalloped waist will be flattering on an apple shaped girl like myself.

  1. Good for you! It's hard when you're a momma to remember to do things for yourself too. I often get wrapped up in housework and taking care of Olivia that I forget the basics, like brushing my hair and getting out of my pajamas! :) Belly dancing is SO much fun, as is hula dancing! I've never taken a class but I do them on my own with dvds in my living room when the peanut is napping or playing. Good luck on your project! I've been dying to try these pants out, I just have so many other projects in the works! Do let us know what you think of this pattern! xoxo
