Cutting out a pattern for a shirt this evening I realize that they've changed a lot over the years. I thought the tissue paper was as thin as it would ever be, but it's gossimer now. And they save ink by not printing on various things like seam allowances. And along the edge I see that it isn't 5/8th of an inch in all instances, they seem to expect me to be using a serger. I'll check with my daughter tomorrow since she has used these more recently than I have. Ironic that just last week I found the right sized box to store all of my old patterns in, the ones I've bought in the past and never made or made, but that have more heft and information.

This time of year in cold weather and right after the holidays is generally a pretty good time of year to sell things on eBay, so I'll be busy with that as soon as the various holiday activities subside. A family event tomorrow and friends over for lunch on New Year's Day and then I'll get that stuff listed. I've photographed several items already.

I don't have any resolutions to declare or act on, I have the usual things I'm trying to accomplish year round to keep me busy. But every so often an idea of how to do something in a new way will be presented or will pops into my head, and it probably happens with each of you also. So here's wishing you luck finding those good ideas or helpful goals as you move through the new year.
