I’ve been working over the past week or so on cleaning up my sewing space (again…) with the hopes of getting a few sewing projects done over the next few months.
However, given what my mood and whatnot have been like over the past few months, I really don’t have a lot of hope I’m afraid.
Still, I wanted to make up my wish-list just to print out and keep in my sewing space to try to motivate myself, and thought while I was at it I’d take a look at the Historical Sew Monthly list for 2022.
This year they seem to be focusing a lot more on smaller projects which feels SO much more approachable to me – but we’ll see how I do!
Last year I summed up what I’d been up to in 2020, so now I’ll come back and do it once again for 2021.
For anyone who can see how frequently I posted, and what I posted about – you’ll know that it was not a particularly good year for me. I have been struggling with a lot of things, including keeping up with my beginning -of-the-year creative intentions, my hopes, and my endless to-do list/wish list.

If you follow me on Facebook, you’ll already know I’m doing another closet cleanout and fabric destash – but just in case you don’t, I figured I’d make up a quick post.

Years ago, when I was attending my very first SCA events with my friend Deb (who then moved away, I lost interest, and it was only years later that I gave the SCA another go…) I was looking to make some cool costumes.
I don’t even remember how I came across the Ghawazee coat / vest, though I did end up buying a bunch of coin scarves and belts and things, and took a few belly dancing classes at different events, so I suspect the whole (fairly modern) belly dance + SCA thing was a bit of a trend at the time.
