I’ll keep this brief. We have boxes of furniture we have to start putting together. Blergh.

I had quite a productive sewing year. Considering a year ago I was afraid to cut into fabric I’m quite happy with the results. They are not all great but quite a few winners in there.

I can’t get enough of my pajama bottoms and my maternity dresses. They have been saviors during this bump-a-licious period. But I think best prize definitely goes to my Windmill Colette Hazel.

I definitely want to revisit some on my failures (never got that fit perfect), like Darling Ranges , the Juniper trousers, and Jasmine blouse.

This sewing year I felt adventurous, less fearful, and didn’t let mistakes keep me from finishing a project.

I thoroughly enjoyed making sewing friends offline and online. I can’t begin to tell you the amount of wonderful you added to my day-to-day (here’s a clue: LOADS).

No guarantees that I will be as productive next year, with a baby on the hip and all, but I’ll try to make things as well-made as I can. Here’s to learning and improving our sewing skills!

Happy New Year!

  1. You made some great things this year, but my personal favorite was the lobster skirt! And I really love it that you sewed your vacation wardrobe. It’s been fun to follow along on both your blogs, and I’m looking forward to reading about your adventures in the new year too.

    Happy New Year!


  2. I adore your tiny pocket tank and the Ava top! And you sure look super stylish in your maternity dresses – your little one is going to have a great role model in dressing!


  3. Happy new year mela!! Your makes show how much your sewing confidence has grown and when you show them together I just think “wow” as they are so full of gorgeous colour, just like you. Hope you are getting on top of organising your new life and a very happy and exciting 2013 to you both xx
