Happy New Year to all of you!
I always love a fresh beginning, so here's to another one...
Workplaces and schools are closed today statewide because of the cold weather, so it was the perfect day for hunkering down and.....creating pie charts. Part of me wanted to go outside and see what -24 F (-31 C) air temperature felt like, but the rest of me decided to stay inside.
My husband just went outside and threw water from a pitcher into the air. It immediately powderized. Very cool!!!
But without further ado, I present Sewing of the Year 2013 (graphs courtesy of my husband).
If you're extra nerdy, you can analyze my charts from previous years, as well:
Sewing in 2013
Items stitched: 190
Yards stitched: 171.84
Yards purchased (if you must know): 164.75
(Click graphs to enlarge.)
July was an active sewing month since I was participating in a stash busting contest.
I can't believe I made that many pajamas!!!
Ottobre won out again, Jalie and Self-drafted following in a distant 2nd and 3rd.
What can I say? Jersey garments are quick to stitch and easy to wear.
And another way to visualize fabrics used:
Oldest daughter actually got more items than I did this year. 50 items sounds like a lot and yet her closet is sparse. She still managed to wear out and grow out of some things. Oh, and we have 4 seasons. Hmmm... My family would be poorly off if they depended on me for all of their clothing.
