2013 was a busy year and one I do not wish to repeat again in some ways. In other ways, it was great as I got to try out new ideas.
I sewed until I was sick of sewing and then I sewed some more. I could not afford to loose my mojo. It was a case of keep on going.
I made two items for Miss Rodeo Canada 2013. They were gifts to her as she was amazing at what she did for MRC.
I also sewed for another person and it was a massive amount of work. Only one of the shirts shown remained with me. There are several others that were not finished due to time constraints and other issues.
And more. The vest didn’t get sent either. It also had a plain pink shirt made to go with it.
And this shirt that somehow eluded me but took lots of hours to hand sew the appliques on to.
And then I did a redo on a pink dress and sponsorships. There were two other banners with white stitching on them. No picture to be found. The lilac vest was done for a young lady who was finishing up her reign. The teal shirt is one of three I made for another queen contest. The green dress was for another queen. I only did the sewing on it but the skirt was a new design. And the bag for a boy who started reading with me on a weekly basis.
I also did this embroidery on a pair of jeans for Miss Rodeo Canada. Cute but labour intensive.
That was from January to mid June. I was exhausted and ready for a rest. But that didn’t happen; no rest for this lady.
