Happy New Year

What to do when you are waiting for your fingernail polish to dry? Blog! (Very carefully, of course...)



I followed Erica's example and have assembled a collage of my completed garments since I started this blog in March 2007. Looking at it this way helps me to forget the pain of all the ripped seams. I hope to get even more done in 2008.


Although I have a few ideas swirling in my head, I am not making a public list of resolutions. The one thing I will share, though, is that I am going to start keeping track of my "yards sewn". Melissa and I talked about how she does this; I think it would be interesting to see what my actual usage is. Will I track "yards purchased"? Well, I suppose in all fairness I should do that too...

Happy New year!!!!

A couple of years ago, I tried tracking how many yards I sewed up - I gave up 3/4 of the way through since I stared making so many 'small' projects that didn't require much yardage. I wish I would have stuck with it - maybe I'll try again this year!

Melissa said...

Look at all the beautiful garments you made! I know you can track you yardage sewn, it's really easy I promise. Now the yardage in, hmm, that is a struggle for me. I started out last year, but gave up after a month - a sign I was buying too much. Now if I can just steer clear of the fabric stores and sew what I have (novel concept). I look forward to seeing what you create in 2008, you're always an inspiration to me ~ Happy New Year! :-)

Happy new year! Great collage of a lot of great sewing accomplishments!

You have been very productive and it was great to see all the garments all together! In tracking your fabric sewn, are you going to place the numbers on your blog ala Shannon (Hungry Zombie Couture)? And how will you handle tracking them? The questions are because I want to do the same thing...track yardage used...but haven't figured out a way yet!

Yards in and out is the only resolution I have - at least that's public. I have seen people do this on a spreadsheet, but like you, I have a pretty book I am planning to use for a sewing notebook. I love your collage. What did you use to make it?
