You guys are the best! 

Thank you so much for not making me feel guilty about my recent decision to not make any Xmas gifts this year.  What a relief! 

I’m sure Her Selfishness would approve.  In fact, I think she would love T. Sedai’s suggestion of starting the League of Extraordinarily Selfish Seamstresses (LESS).  I know I did!

In other sewing news, I have a Cashmere Curse update for you.  I have deconstructed the skirt and have removed all the interfacing from the hem and slit.  I am ready to fit it (again!) and to reconstruct it for the (hopefully) final time. 

Happy selfish sewing everyone!

    Cool! Released from the bonds of sewing for others! Good luck on your cashmere skirt.

    One year I made giftmas gifts for everyone and really didn’t feel the love in return. Then another I asked friends if it was ok to stop exchanging, their friendship is enough. It has reduced my list and holiday stress considerably. I totally don’t regret it.

    The only thing I “make” for xmas pressies is candy. Either caramels or almond rocha. Sewing is for ME! Knitting is for ME!

    Good luck with the skirt! It looked pretty darn good in the previous piccies, but kudos for having the guts to keep working on it. I’m sure it’ll be beautiful!
