2010 - In Review
Happy New Year!
I pray that everyone is well and making grand plans for the year 2011. It's that time again. My, how time flies. It seems only yesterday I wrote my 2009 review. Well the important thing is, we are still here and able to do our favorite hobby, sewing/designing our clothes. What a gift.
I don't want to even talk about all the goals that I didn't accomplish. Instead I will focus on my achievements. Last year, productivity increased. For me I sewed:
Total garments 40
My Favorite Things -
Total garments 13
Favorite Things for DD-
For Family and Clients
Total garment 19
Favorite Garments for Sisters -
Favorite Client Garments -
I made a grand total of 72 garments and two home dec projects, not to mention several mending/alterations during 2010. I was surprised! High on the quantity side I must admit. Overall I think a did well on the quality of my work. As I looked through all of the project sets on my flash drive , I saw improvements in the finish and fit of my garments. Last year I focused on achieving a more polished look. Every jacket/coat was lined, some with piping added to the front facing. And nearly every woven dress was lined. This year I felt much better about the results of my client projects.
It's was a very good year of sewing. Soon I'll post a review of the last garment finished 2010 and the first finished 2011.
