Wednesday Weekly #112

Happy December, makers! This is the final month of the year and it has got me thinking about my 2017 sewing goals and things like the #2017makenine challenge. I didn’t quite make it through all of my plans or reach all of my goals but I am incredibly happy with the things I did make this year. I am looking forward to reflecting back a bit this month on the blog so I hope you come and check out some of my posts on that topic!
