Christmas projects are all done

...and my thoughts are turning back to sewing.  The first bit of news is that I have a permanent space for my machine.  Once we get the kitchen cleaned up from the holidays I will post pictures.  We have converted the eat in area of the kitchen to my craft/sewing/office area.  I have a desk and two tables for stuff and work area.  Plus a have a beautiful old sewing machine table for my machine.  No more taking over the dining room.

I'm thinking that my first project of the new year is going to be a cape loosely based on the Irish walking cape.  I have a great green velour that will work fantastic.  I'm thinking of something measuring the length of my arm span on each side and down to my knees in the front and back.  Open in the front with a fastener of some kind at the throat, with a slight wrap around in the front.

I also have an old Fox collar from a coat of my Grandmother's that I would love to put on.

Stay tuned for the pattern and the plan.

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday and has a safe, Prosperous and Crafty New Year.
