Well. Here we are.
When I see kids I know this time of year, kids I really know and love, I tell them: Don't forget your New Year's Resolution! They always look at my puzzled but not because they know I don't even make New Year's Resolutions but because they can't imagine what resolution they have already declared that I am aware. And I remind them: Remember you promised to not get any bigger next year! Further puzzlement. Like, ok lady. I now you're the one who likes to tease but you sound like you mean it and let me tell you I plan on growing and learning and doing ALL THE THINGS next year. Nothing is stopping me. And of course that is exactly what I want for them. For anyone. Absolutely. I AM just a teaser and I love their reactions. I am all about seizing the day! And I am all about those kids seizing every moment.And here I am. With big news. And in a way- it's to say I'm seizing the day.But I'm also pressing pause- on Chicken Boots.My new live sewing stream is something I'm very passionate about. It's whereI want to be. Seizing each day.I know it's not for everyone. I know it has little to do with knitting (but more than you'd think!). But I also know most don't know what it is they're missing until they check it out. It's different from any other diy or sewing video you've watched. It's a different experience. Just saying it's interactive, inclusive, social, and casual in no way conveys it's purpose, meaning or necessity.You know me- I don't do anything unless I think it's needed or I think my spin on it will be more than useful. I don't like wasting my time. haha! And I'm very excited about this. And all the things that have happened in the last year has made Sew Sew the path of least resistance. Lucky me! Because I love it. I love sharing and making and learning. But of course I can't do both!And what does this mean to you?
Just a few of the things I've made on Sew Sew Live...Above: Making Backpack and Below: clockwise from left: Ginger Jeans, my Notions Case pattern, Tamarack Jacket)

I imagine I'll get all sorts of great questions and imaginative ideas on how to keep things the way they are. But please trust me it is impossible right now. But here are a few preemptive answers:
If you've read this far- you get a gold star!I'm still here and sewing. Obsessing over making. And I'm excited about some of the plans I have in store.
