Here are some of my favourite projects from 2012. There's too many to show all my projects... way more than I completed in 2011. Click on the photo to take you to the actual project...
The most popular project has been the Denim Fabric Baskets Tutorial, made from a pair of pre-loved jeans, followed by the Fabric Basket Tutorial.
A year ago tomorrow, saw the first Threading YOUR Way with Threading My Way Link Party. Each of the 33 linkies, is ongoing, themed and open indefinitely. As I had hoped, these link parties have become a collection of resources, full of patterns, tutorials, inspiration and reviews. The Bags and Totes collection is the most popular, with 299 bags and totes added.
So, after a successful 2012, what do I hope to achieve in 2013?
Create at least one refashion, hopefully more, each month. Upcycling, recycling, reusing, repurposing, refashioning, whatever you care to call it, it's becoming trendy and more mainstream and that's a good thing.
Accept at least one challenge each month. I find online challenges a great way to meet other like minded bloggers, as well as a way to hone and extend my sewing skills. So far I've signed up for two in January.
Continue to host the Threading YOUR Way with Threading My Way Link Parties, highlighting features each week. The vast majority of these parties are sewing related.
Sew to help others. In 2012 I joined in with many of the monthly sew-alongs at Hopeful Threads and made both dresses and shorts for Dress A Girl Around the World, Australia.
Sew substantially more clothes for myself. One t-shirt and one scarf just won't cut it in 2013. You can hold me to that!!! That won't stop me from sewing for kids, though. I'll just have to find more hours in each day.
Extend my limited knowledge of html coding and share what I know with you. If you'd like to know how I've done much of this page, check out creating tables in a blog, as part of the How Does Your Blog Look series.
And I'll definitely be writing more tutorials.
In an hour and a half it will be 2013. Wishing you all a happy and healthy year, filled with lots of fun and laughter, with a large dose of sewing, crafting and creating.
Happy New Year, Pam!ReplyDelete
