2014 has come and gone! This had been one of the most challenging year I’ve had since graduating from college, mainly because its so hard feeling sick so much (pregnancy, then postpartum issues, then the flu season w/ lil K in school) and dealing with the changes in my ever expanding family and work. Luckily, I have sewing to keep me sane. When I was feeling down, sewing made me happier, when I was feeling overwhelmed, sewing calmed me down, when I was feeling tired, sewing actually gives me more energy (well, except that first 3 month of pregnancy)!
I’ve still made quite a lot of things considering how busy/sick I was all the time. Here is the total count:
|machine knit sweater||3|
|hand knit sweater||2|
|Shirt (long sleeve)||2|
|Shirt (short sleeve)||3|
|Little K dress||3|
|dress for friend||1|
Project started : project completed/kept : project often worn ratio this year:
Here are the fails that did not hold up to wearing:
Things I made for others that gets a lot of wear:
Some basics that I made – they got a lot of wear (or i think they will) but I am not super duper excited about them:
Here are some makes thats frosting – I really like them, but only get to wear them once in a while:
Here are some of my favorite projects that I wear very very often – they are not quite basics but fit in my wardrobe so well:
And of course, my FAVORITE make of this year:
I have to thank my hubby for taking & processing photos without complaint for yet another year. Taking standard outfit photos are pretty boring for him (and we do not have time to go fancy these days, just a quick backyard shoot will do). Its like me altering something for him every other week (which he rarely burdens me with), so I feel lucky that I roped in such a great partner in my blogging! 🙂
I also have to thank my mom for helping me so much with the babies and house work. Without her, I probably wont have that much time for sewing! Also my dad for all his sewing related garage sale finds 🙂 I am much stocked up on threads and sewing machines these days!
Lastly, I want to thank my readers – thank you for checking out my blog for another year! I love having an audience out there for all my sewing related excitement. I especially thank those who commented on my posts, I really appreciate you taking the time to give me feedback and it gives me much happiness!
I also have some new year resewlution (haha!) – comment more on other sewing blogs! For the past years I’ve been reading blogs on my iphone and its a pain to enter comment there. But I really do love some of the makes out there and to be honest, when I am bored out of my mind feeding little A or putting little K to bed, seeing posts with sewn garments perks me up. So this year, I want to try to make an effort and go back to my reader with my laptop and comment on at least the posts with finished garments that inspires me!
