My utmost challenge 22/05/10

so i have been in training for this utmost challenge for about a month now and i have decided to take the leap…..

this is tiff’s guide lines this also pic link’s you to her page too so you can go check here out… tiff is holding a fab weekend get together for crafters alike i so with i live a bit closer but i think the uk is just a bit to far away!!!!

so here i am my friend’s think i am crazy but my blog friend’s i hope will be more positive!!!!

i have got a few guide lines for myself whilst on this year long journey…..

  • i will only buy clothes from thrift shop’s
  • i will buy “tool’s” eg fabric, notion’s, wool, patterns &book’s to aid me used if i can
  • shoe’s i feel will be a bit of both!!
  • i will try to do some kid’s clothes too
  • i shall try to always buy thrifty good’s for the house

i shall stand by these rules for the next 12 months
and when i say try i will i mean with all my might BUT if my hoover breaks no harm to you buy i’ll be buying a new one kid’s are messy creatures!!!!!

i hope that my utmost challenge will aid me is self teaching seamstresness!!!! wish me luck!!!
