2019, A Year in Review

I am a little late this year with my Year in Review, but I really wanted to post finished pictures of my Haslam gown and call the project complete within a single calendar year.  And if I don't take photos of my finished garments and blog about them, do they really exist?!

I know that sounds ridiculous, but posting finished projects gives me finality, and after quite a few years of doing this blogging thing, that is the way my mind works.

So quite a few of these pieces actually belong in another Year in Review, but for my purposes, blogged in a calendar year means finished in a calendar year.

And, yes, there are other projects that were technically completed in 2019 but have yet to make it to the blog.  Those will hopefully be posted in the near future!  Until then, happy sewing, and knitting, and crocheting, and quilting, and crafting, etc.  And here is to a wonderfully creative year!

  1. I love seeing your creations! I love reading your critiques of the Red Carpet successes/failures! And I just wondered, how many pairs of vintage shoes (or those that look vintage) do you own? You always have the perfect pair of shoes for each outfit!

  2. You've had a great year. And brava to you for experimenting with the tent dress silhouette--you only live once! ;)
