Inspired by Sharon (http://petiteandsewing.blogspot.com/2011/01/2010-what-year.html) I make a little review of last year’s sewing.
So on average that is two pieces per month and that is exactly what I had aimed for. About half of them are quite basic pieces that can be worn on a regular basis, I am very happy about that. The rest is either special (paranimf dress), or I gave it away (the presents) or can not be worn at all – and I don’t mean the bag by that!
A highlight sewing wise in 2010 was in August the meeting with online sewing friends in London (http://artisanssquare.com/sg/index.php/topic,7881.70.html). People who enjoy spending hours just in the textiles section of the V&A museum. Fabric shopping with people who like fabric shopping!
2011 Sewing Goals:
With my thesis to be finished, I don’t think I can keep up this productivity. I will probably move this year, and be temporarily without a paid job, so a good resolution will be:
1) I am only allowed to buy fabric for one new project after I sewed two things from stash/UFO. Purchased fabric has to be used within three months.
Looking at my “pieces made” list, the number of tops reflects my actual needs quite well, but I made so many skirts while I mainly wear pants:
2) Sew pants. Wear skirts more often.
Finally, Sharon made a nice collage in her annual review of the pieces she made last year, and I can’t.
3) Take photos of everything I made. Show photos here and at http://artisanssquare.com/sg/index.php
