So, 2012 Happened.

Where have I been? Well...

We went to Viva Las Vegas again, which I did not enjoy nearly as much as in years previous.  I don't know what it was, but the whole event felt "off" to me and I just couldn't quite get my groove on.  I am not sure that we'll be going this year.

While we were at Viva we took a few days to go out the Grand Canyon...

via historic Route 66.

While we were in the forest, I met Smoky the Bear.

In August, we to Tiki Oasis, which we both thoroughly enjoyed.


Then in October I visited the ancestral village in Spain with my sister.

We managed to get the house painted right before the winter rains started.  Dig that crazy color!

To finish the year off,  we went to the Great Dickens Christmas Fair.  As usual, we couldn't quite commit to the straight up Victorian London costuming thingy.  This year we went as American Wild West Show Performers.  It was great fun!

...and that's about it for 2012.  In between all that fun stuff I've been sewing and not posting which is a problem because I can't remember which patterns I used to make what!

My goals for 2013 are:

1.  Sew only from the stash. This shouldn't be a problem because the stash is completely out of control!
2.  Post at least once a month.
3.  Post everything I sew, whether it's a success or not.
4.  Sell my unwanted vintage on Ebay/Etsy so that I have room for the stuff I love.

So tell me.  What have YOU been up to?  Any goals for the New Year?


  1. I know your feeling about VLV. It's gotten soooo big now. And I'm not really sure if that's a good thing or not.

    My plans are to sew more, then actually wear them! Lol.
