It's that time of year again. I always like fresh beginnings. Evaluate the old; make a fresh start.
I wouldn't say I have a lot of new goals for sewing. I'll probably try some new techniques and work on some fitting and drafting.
The big thing I hope to do this year is to organize my recipes and do better meal planning. One of my kids eats a special diet (no grains, starches, sugar, or dairy, and some other things), which means every single thing he eats is made from scratch. Being better organized is the only thing I can think of that will make that a little easier.
But, on to the statistics, which is what you're all waiting for!
All the charts below are drawn from the info in the spreadsheet I use to record everything I sew (pattern, yardage, size, recipient, etc.). I did all the sewing and my husband (spreadsheet guru) did all the charts you see, which took him about 20 minutes. I also contributed opinions on bar chart color schemes.
In total, I sewed 166 items, using 174.4 yards of fabric. That doesn't include 1 unblogged wadder, Hot Patterns' All Wrapped Up Tank, the Fabric.com free download.
Items and Yards sewn by month
Pattern companies used. Burdastyle refers to the magazine. Japanese is a catch-all category of magazines and books. Do you think I've gotten my money's worth from my Ottobre magazines?
Garment types sewn. Yes, I did have a pantsuit category! More pantsuits to come!
Who benefited from my sewing? At least I made for my husband than I did for "Home Sweet Home".
Happy New Year to all my wonderful readers!
