Thank You 2012 :)

I'm too lazy/disorganized/easily distracted to do a detailed end-of-the-year wrap up, (even though I love reading about all of yours!) so I'll just post a few faves of my sewing endeavors from this past year - a year of challenges, rewards, loss, growth, and gratitude :)

(Edited to add my #1 favorite make of the year - HOW could I have missed this one???)
My Koos Coat!
Top of this list, this one is...
it gets a LOT of wear!
(told you I was disorganized/easily distracted......)

Marcy Tilton Jacket

Bustles! (and a foray into selling on Etsy!)

Au Bonheur!

TNT Zip Tees

Tablecloth skirt ala Shams :)

And the Newbie in the closet :)

And for 2013 I have an empty jar.   Ready to be filled with little notes citing the inspirational, laugh-inducing, blessing-filled, growth-oriented, and otherwise memorable events of the coming year.   I'll open and read them at the end of year in ceremony and thankfulness.

Right now, I am thankful for all of you - my readers, my fellow sewists and bloggers, my inspiration.   How lucky am I to have found all of you in my new-found path on this sewing journey!

Here's to a 2013 that is abundant with gratitude for all of us :)
