Auld Lang Syne

Well, I've talked about resolutions for the new year already. I guess it's time to take stock of the year gone by. This year was a prolific one for me. I accomplished the following:
  1. I sewed 103 garments for myself. This includes about 5 non-wearable muslins.
  2. I sewed 14 garments for my husband.
  3. I sewed 1 dog bed for my pooch.
  4. I completed the first stage of a SWAP, which consists of 11 garments.
  5. I won second place in the Timmel SWAP contest.
  6. My SWAP clothing was featured in Australian Stitches magazine.
  7. I planned out several other full SWAPs and completed many of the pieces: here, here, here, here & here.
  8. I sewed a formal dress to wear to Prom.
  9. I got some summer sewing done.
  10. I started a blog.
All things considered, it was good year. I hope next year will be as good to me.

Happy New Year everyone. I hope you and your loved ones flourish and find peace and joy.
