2012 Year Review: Part 2

In July I tried to watch the Olympics and sew at the same time. This was only partially successful as I only completed 3 of my planned 5 garments
In August I was away on holiday for 2 weeks and didn't sew at all.

In September I changed roles again at work (sigh). I was very blessed by two fellow sewing people who sent me sewing goodies:-
Lovely L sent me my choice of patterns in the 99c sale
and M fabric and Burda magazines
And I made many plans but didn't actually sew anything.

I had a great holiday in Barcelona and was wowed by Gaudi!

In October I bought a better (used) sewing chair
I bought charcoal jersey and mused about patchwork chairs.

I went to the ballet for the first time! I converted my home office to use a temporary standing desk and sewed a knit dress and cami to finish off my 5 piece autumn collection
In November I made Christmas decorations for the craft fayre, and also went on the day and sold lots of my stock
I made a Christmas stocking
and started to think about SWAP 2013!

In December I made some more Christmas stockings
A whole load of clay snowmen decorations
Bunting thank you cards
I also sewed 4 tops and 2 dresses - all knits!

I am back at work tomorrow so we will have to see how the sewing goes on into 2013!

What a productive sewing year! I can't believe you're already half-way through the 2013 SWAP. I'm still working on the first garment. Will you plan another?
