Happy Bloggoversary to me! I can’t believe I’ve been posting for 2 years. And sewing for 2 and a half.
I looked back at some projects and posts over the past year. I’m kind of amazed. Even with all the non-sewing events over the year; my father’s heart attack and surgery in September, the passing of my father-in-law in February and moving to a new home in June, I was able to learn techniques and whip up some pretty special pieces in the last 12 months. Sewing is a big part of this blog but, really, a small piece of my life in general. Amazing that I can ramble on about it as much as I do. 🙂
My fave self-stitched item from my 2nd year? It has to be the ScarJo dress. It was my first circle skirt with horse hair braid in the hem. Biggest disappointment? My Touch of Asia dress. While it has enjoyed a few wearings the fabric has frayed considerably and it is relegated to unwearable now. The problem is largely due to my inexperience and the fact that this was sewn pre-serger so I didn’t finish the seams properly. What’s coming up? That deserves it’s own post! Though I will say that I am eagerly anticipating receiving my Pattern Pyramid package.
Thank you for reading and commenting. I still have fun at this. I take short breaks from blogging when I need to but the online community still thrills me every day. So helpful and creative!
Thanks for 2 blog-tastic years!
