Sewing progress

These past couple of weeks I've been working on some sewing projects. After so many years of pledging to do so, last year I finally took the plunge and started sewing. But, as it often happens, I have been focusing on other projects and haven't dedicated much time to it. In fact, I haven't done anything since October, when I saw the tank top.
