My personal challenge is to extend my sewing repertoire and skills while resuming a busier life (I had a quiet patch for the start of this year). Usually when I get busy, the activity that "gives" is the one that also gives me great pleasure - sewing. So I am going to make sure I keep going by sewing, even if only in small blocks of time, every day. That way I will make a garment a month.
Some of you have also indicated that you find sewing difficult - so ladies (I don't think I have any male readers), lets put time aside for ourselves and sew our style.
If you want to sew more than one garment a month, that is great - I am sure I will too, but the primary goal is choosing one really nice garment a month to make to completion.
I've made a list of those of you who want to join. If I have missed anyone, or got your details wrong, let me know.

Charmel - no blog that I am aware of - let me know if you have one Charmel.
I've made a button for the challenge - this is the image only - but there is a grab button on the side bar, just under "About Me".
|Officially starts October 2013|
I'm not going to set up a separate blog for this as this is also your own personal challenge and sewing journey. It would be great to document what you make though - shall I put the finished garments on my blog, or do you think a photo service like Picasa would be a good idea?
I'll write another post on Monday 31st September with more information.
If you want to challenge your self and join, please leave a comment for me or email me, firstname.lastname@example.org.
