And so it begins...

The post Diane was waiting for *grin*.

I have a Robin Hood fanfic pounding my brain, but I need to get all my New Years posts done first while it is still New Years Day. So, here goes:

(drum roll please)

Today marks day one of the Year of No Clothes Shopping! And I didn't even buy coffee today, so we're off to a good start.


-gifts, gift cards
-souvenirs, tho they must be real souvenirs, not "oh what a gorgeous sweater and hey, I'm in London." Nope. It must have a British flag, and or a cheesy slogan like Mind the Gap. (and don't worry about me, I can find plenty other things to buy in London. Books. DVDs, SuperPoseable Guy of Gisborne Action Figure *ahem*)
-anything I make, once I figure out how to use my new sewing machine. Which means fabric and patterns are fair game.
- any remaining gear I need for my Team in Training Triathlon. I hear rumor of something scarily called "tri-shorts"...

I am looking forward to all the new and exciting things I will do this year, and wearing old clothes to do them! :D

I am joining you in this endeavor, although my first day was January 2 due to one last day of vacation shopping with my mom. So I will buy no new clothes from January 2 through January 1. Good luck with the sewing! I just inherited my late grandmother's antique sewing table (and sewing machine), so I have some additional incentive to sew!

Yay! welcome, and it will be good to have support :) I have some fabric to play with that mom had lying around, but I don't think I'll have time for anything till I get back from England.
