Gosh, where do I start?! I seem to be overly excited about all that's going on in the sewing community, the good things that is :).... For instance, I signed up for the Burda challenge, hosted by Dawn, who blogs over at "Two on and two off". The challenge is to sew at least one garment a month for 2015 from the Burda Style magazine, but go have a look see and see if you're game. It seems like a lot of fun to me! Now, I have never sewn a Burda Style anything, a pattern or from their magazine.. It's a little intimidating; however, I would like to really move a little out of my comfort zone this year.

to have this one, loved so many in this issue.
I've already started a 3 month subscription with Burda Style, as I wanted to see if I would like the magazine and would I really make anything from the magazine. However, I couldn't wait for my first subscription, lol, so I ordered a few off of Ebay (did anyone tell you that Ebay is addictive? ) LOL!
|Seriously these patterns are gorgeous.|

There were so many garments in this issue from the moto jacket, to the crossover pants, which are so unique, but in a good way. I know these issues are old news to most, but man y'all I am excited!
Now, I probably won't have a January Burda garment, seeing that my subscription doesn't start until February. I also didn't really see anything that I wanted to make in January's issue; however, I do believe that we can make something from any issue, so I will have to see. However, I'm still waiting on my tracing materials and things like that, so all that will be a factor in will I have a garment for January for the challenge.
In other news, is anyone else waiting for the new Vogues to be released? I know I am! I am getting impatient lol... Now in some real time sewing, I have managed to make good progress on my B5526 shirt. I'm using a flannel that I purchased from Jo-Ann's, hopefully I won't regret it. I also have plans to cut out M7094, which I picked up this weekend from the Hobby Lobby, and they just so happened to have every pattern that I wanted, go Hobby Lobby! I'm not sure if I should do a muslin, but I think I'm gonna throw caution to the wind, LOL! We'll see how that pans out, right?! Okay, y'all it's already beyond my bed time and my little people will be taking no prisoners in the morning LOL!
~Be blessed and nothin' less and continue to stay fearlessly fierce!
