2014 Wrap Up!

So how did I do for my goals for 2014? Here is my retrospective:

2014’s Goals:

The first part is clothing construction:

  1. I plan to make some garments for myself this year one per season. I am going to leave this one loose, but I do still want to learn more about this year.

    Success! Completed garments for 2014:DSC05006 green bolero, DSC04980fingerless beaded gloves, DSC04969green corset top, DSC04962black bolero with beaded trim, DSC04951pink bolero, DSC04922navy corset top, DSC04921burgundy corset top, DSC04920pink corset top,DSC04910 orange skirt.

  2. I also have some pieced fabric that I want to make a garment out of possibly a robe.DSC04949

    DSC05008Completed multi-plaid robe. I think this referred to the Hawaiian quilt, which started as a quilt, went to a possible garment, then now is back to a quilt.

The second part is UFOs. Pretty much failed. I didn’t work on my UFOs hardly at all this year only one finish.

  2. Angel quilt.
  3. cross stitch project
  4. grandma’s cathedral windows

The third part is mending:

  1. t-shirt quilt. This is in pieces but I plan to get it done soon.

    Finished!

  2. wedding ring quilt. I have the fabric, I just have to get to it.

The fourth part is new projects:

  1. New girl quilt. This is a new quilt that I need to make for a gift.
  2. New male quilt. There is one person who doesn’t have a quilt made especially for him. I have begun this one and pictures will follow soon.
  3. Steve’s denim quilt When I made a denim quilt for our elephant exchange, I had Steve remove the pins while watching football and he fell in love with it. Thus, football and quilting days begin today and we will jointly make a new quilt starting today! Finished!

I am pretty happy with my progress, especially clothing construction: I made nine finished garments. I am especially proud because six of them are hand sewn. Not so much progress in quilting but with the move back to my sewing room, I expect to be more successful this year.
