With today being the last day of 2012, I’m like many of you – reflectingreviewing the year we’re leaving behind. When it comes to sewing, I usually keep a notebook by my machine to record all the projects that I’ve worked on… it’s always amazing to see how productive I was (last year I had a whopping 154 projects!). I did the same this year. However sometime around July I just gave it up… I blame the notebook. Previous years I recorded my projects in a pretty, “leather” bound memo pad, but this year I opted for the cheap, composition book and decided to categorize all my projects by pattern designerwebsitemy own design as well as attempt to record embroidery only projects. This, was my downfall – too complicated of a system. 2013 will be different…. I have a new notebook lined up and plan on no system at all!

With that said, I’m excited about the upcoming year and what it brings: new tutorials, a few projects for WeAllSew and SewNews, as well as an item in the upcoming One Yard Wonders (3) book – not to mention the assortment of clothing, accessories, and whimseys that appear here. Happy New Year to everyone and I’m looking forward to another year of sharing sewing fun!
