Happy New Year!
I would like to thank everyone who visited my blog and special thanks to those of you who graciously left a word of encouragement. Last year was good; I've made some improvements but want to continue to explore some couture techniques. The list of goals for 2009 was the same as the previous year. Looking back on them, I still did not quite meet them. The reason maybe due to the breadth of them. For 2010 goals will be more targeted than last year's. I'll post them tomorrow.
A year in review 2009
More Challenging Projects - Yes. My nieces prom and dinner dance outfits.
Quality over Quantity - The list of finished garments is huge considering I have a full time job. I need to work on the quality part a little more.
Making something from leather - Didn't do yet.
New Specialized Machine - Haven't bought yet.
Refine Terms and Conditions for Clients - Almost done, needs a little more tweaking but usable.
Purchased more Reference Books - Just sewing magazines and crochet books.
Organize - Needs more work
UFO's - Only completed four, but haven't added to them. All 2009 unfinished (cut) projects are being worked on.
Networking - Not so much in person, a little in cyberspace. In November, I became a member of the Haute Couture Club of Chicago. My first meeting will be in February.
The Tally of Things Sewn
For Clients and Miss. DD
My Favorite Things
Least Favorites - Two UFO's - Maybe that's why it took me so long to sew them up.
