Happy New Year to everyone.

I haven't posted on here since Oct 2012 and thought with the new year I'd make an effort to add something again.

My focus over the next few months will be Stitchers Guild's annual SWAP Contest. The contest started on Dec 26th and will run till Apr 30th. A previous made item is also allowed, so I finished up a raincoat.

This years format has us making three 3-packs and two wildcard items, each pack can include:

2 tops + 1 bottom or
1 top + 1 bottom + 1 outer layer
1 dress + 1 top + 1 bottom

So my plan is to have a grey/black pack with probably two tops and a skirt, a brown pack with pants and a blouse and another item and thirdly a more colourful pack with a metallic greenish skirt and a green/yellow print blouse and another item. My wildcards will be the black raincoat and something else, maybe a dress.

The idea is to make professional capsules for when I attend conferences.

I took two weeks vacation and have a quite a few of the pieces almost done. I will post an update when I can.
