Progress Report

2013 New Year's Sewing Goals -- Progress Report:

1. Conquer the zipper
2. Finish my Anna Maria Horner quilt -- DONE
3. Sew a baby quilt -- DONE
4. One more quilt -- DONE 
5. Make a garment for myself
6. Tablecloth -- DONE
7. Placemats -- DONE
8. A gift for my sister (another quilt) -- DONE
9. A Christmas tree skirt
10. Pajamas for the boys

It was the year of quilts -- three baby quilts for friends; a baby-ish sized lap quilt for the family; my AMH quilt; and a quilt for my sister.

There were also bibs, baby pants, a crib sheet, and pillow shams. Lots of pillow shams! I'm loving the Christmas pillow I made for M, and the runner I made for the lowboy in our dining room.

I did not conquer the zipper this year. 

I LOVE quilting! Almost as much as I love fabric. As 2013 wraps up, I have four more quilts started and another baby quilt to start on this winter. 

I am still impatient for the finish and accepting of imperfect. Maybe in time that will change.

2014 goals:
1. Sew myself something to wear. I'm determined to do it this year, and I spent a good part of 2013 looking for the easiest nice-looking pattern to try. I think I found it in the new Liesel + Co. Everyday Skirt.

2. Sew from what I have. I managed to acquire a lot of fabric in 2013. Time to sew it.

3. Take a lesson. Maybe I will conquer the zipper in 2014.

4. Sew what I love.
