Oooh let me think I'm wearing my brightly striped t shirts a LOT, as well as the navy trousers. The green ones need tweaking, and I need to fractionally shorten the purple ones as they get too wet without my highest heels! The thick navy sweater is temporarily retired until really cold weather returns. The shirts [skulls and aurora/trees]are being worn a lot, more than I expected, although it hasn't yet been warm enough to trial the ivory silk one. The geodesic has become a casual favourite, but I'm at work more often than not, so it isn't getting as many wears as the others...and I must find where I've put the fractal one cos I love it! All in all, a very successful batch of sewing, and I'm loving them. Switching gradually to warmer weather clothes now, and my favourite spring dresses are getting their annual airing...I've even risked short sleeves once or twice. TOTALLY immersed in Oz sewing at the moment, which is huge fun. There will be plenty of posts on my blog about that for anyone who's interested, although I have to first get pics of them being worn, then edit out the kids' faces! MANY MANY thanks to Mudcat Now I have to work out how to vote, I don't see a new message option right now
I think as we are no SWAP newbies we are getting better in sewing stuff that really suit our needs and styles. There will always be the one or other thing that is not going to get as much wear as the others (skirt in my wardrobe!), but in general I get the impression we know now aboit what to sew! I am visiting my parents, in the bag: the Morris Blazer, the two polo shirts, the twill pants, the sweater. The rest of Swap needs a bit warmer temps. Well, I could have taken the seagulls...

Well...I wore the white T from my collection today and spilled coffee on it. Here's hoping the prewash spray gets it out! The black pants are already wardrobe staples. I'm taking a trip next week and expect to pack at least some of my garments; they all aren't suitable for this particular adventure but the items that are will be going.
Love hearing about everyone's successes this year!
Medea: That trench is lovely!
Melinda: So happy to hear you are getting back into the swing of things again. I also want to start a running program again but am waiting until my ankle feels a bit more stable. I am almost there. I have been walking up and down hills in Tuscany and getting stronger.
