The next to last day of the year

It's the next to last day of the year and its time to review the sewing goals that I made for 2006. I am going to start with actual achievements because it is always better to go with the positive instead of the negative!

*I did complete and add to my wardrobe about 50 new garments.

*I did make a beautiful (if I must say so myself) prom dress for my daughter.

*I did make some absolutely amazing American Girl Doll Dresses for a friend. Need to do this again soon!

*And I did complete 54 items this year. If I run into my sewing area and add the buttons and hem to a cardigan before midnight tomorrow, that could be 56 items!

*I did spend a lot of quality time investing in my creative side this year! Major days, nights and weekends were spent in the company of my sewing machine.

But on the negative ~ I still have waaayyy to much fabric and at times this year I have been totally unrepentant about purchasing more. I guess that controlling my fabric collection is a ongoing goal that will roll into the New Year.

But all in all, 2006 was a good sewing year for me...I hope it was for you too! And if I get those buttons on the cardigan and it hemmed, I will get back at you. Otherwise, I am on to SWAP sewing as my first projects of 2007.

And I am wishing you and yours a very Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year!!! Keep on sewing...Keep on dreaming...Keep on creating!


  1. Happy New Year!!!

  2. Carolyn;I thhink you have just enough fabric. Think about having NO fabric to dream with, plan with or just obsess about. Start the new year being grateful that Our Father has blessed you with the kind of income that allows such indulgences, you know? I think we are soooo LUCKY to live in a country that has so many wonderful things to take for granted. Running water being my most favorite.(I mean indoor plumbing:)!) And girl! Fabric stores! Right in our own closets! Happy New Year! I hope to meet you some time. You've been a real inspiration to me. God Bless. And thanks.

  3. have a happy New Year!
