WOW, 32 projects completed in 2008! That is a lot more than I thought I'd do. And out of all those things, only one wadder - a bright pink suede cloth jacket that just didn't make it - trashed before the second sleeve went in.
Out of the non-wadders, what are my favorites?
Clothing: The Xceptional Shirt by DanaMarie Designs.
Quilts: Zman's I-SPY Quilt with alphabet.
In 2009, these are my goals:
+ No new fabric purchases!!!!!! Sew only from my stash ( which is extensive), with the exception of zippers and lining (if I can't find something in my stash). [Since this is a 2009 deadline, this week I ordered from Fabric.com, fabricmart.com and equilter.com. Technically, not purchased in 2008!!!]
+ Learn to Quilt on my New Used Quilt Designer Machine!!!!! I want to learn to use this machine to the fullest.
+ Make One Item from Each Burda Plus and/or Burda World of Fashion Magazine Acquired!!!! I have three issues of Burda Plus, with the fourth coming my way in January, plus several BWOF issues. BUT I have been hesitant to actually make anything - the idea of tracing and preparing the tissue seems to be a barrier. But I will overcome this barrier in 2009 and make one thing from each issue I acquire.
+ Make at least one item for myself from the vintage patterns I've collected!!!! I have a bunch I've picked up here and there. I used the men's pj's for a Christmas present. Now I want to make at least one dress out of the vintage patterns I've picked up.
+ Finish the Unfinished 2008 Projects!!!!
So these are my resolutions or goals or whatever you want to call them. I start on the 2nd (tomorrow I'm busy all day!!!)
