I am definitely late to the party this year, but I do like to look at what I managed to achieve each year.
Gillian has again encouraged us to look at our Top 5 Hits, Misses, Highlights, Reflections and Goals for 2016.
Reptilian jeans, I love them.
Pleather top, I am so pleased how this worked out.
My BIL’s Ducati Henley, I thoroughly enjoyed the process and how well it turned out in the end.
The rayon shell top is a fail, I do not like how it works with the top I made, probably wrong fabric choice.
The biggest fail and the one that completely took away my sewing mojo for quite a bit of the year was Burda 7286 Jacket, wrong fabric, gaberdine weave doesn’t work with tailoring!!
- I’ve travelled a lot this year, Armidale, Brisbane as well as Puyallup where I met Carolyn and Patti.
- Attended 2 sewing weekends with my sewing buddies.
It was an interesting year last year, I seriously took up Continental knitting and am enjoying it immensely, there is a cardigan that just needs the buttons sewn on and it fits perfectly.
The bags I have made have filled a hole in my life both for travel and also at home.
My addiction to fabric has not been cured or curtailed, unfortunately more came in 42.95 than last year and less went out 20.1. This does not include the bags.
I managed to complete 2 of my goals for 2016:
- Picking (Continental) knitting.
- Entered the bag contest at Pattern Review.
Now for the collage of my makes for 2016.
