Year End Re-Cap – The projects of 2011

Hi Readers!

Today I am spending some time wrapping gifts at the Barnes & Nobles book store to help raise money for my all-time favorite charity (Canine Companions for Independence).  My goal today is $200, so hopefully the store will be loaded with shoppers and my wrapping skills will beg to be tipped graciously! Ha!

Anyhoosy, I thought I would take time to post a little re-cap of the year’s projects.  I’ve never had occasion to do one of these posts in the past but thought since other sewing bloggers do this (and I kinda like looking at theirs) it might be fun to do one myself.

You know, the thing about blogging, what I like most about doing this is it’s like a little diary.  I can keep track of the things I did, the things I made, what worked, what didn’t and so forth and it’s all right there in one place.  I can go back to it at any time and really from just about anywhere!

So here goes…

Projects completed:

1. Car Organizer, from crumb blocks:2. Re-decorated the Guest Bedroom…3. Braided T-Shirt Rug #1 – sewn by hand4. The Tomato Pin-Cushion:5. Slipcover project…6.  The Crutch Bag…6. T-Shirt Rug #2 – Sewn by machinet-shirt rug7. The Little Wheels Quilt8. Terry Lounging Tunic – Butterick 55249. Pattern of the year Butterick 5495

Projects In Work:

1. Roll, Roll, Cotton Boll Mystery Quilt – quiltville.com2. 16 Patch Double Pinwheel 3. The Ricky Tims binding on my Carolina Christmas ….wow…can I get this finished already! 4. The Slipcover for the couch…I can almost get on my knees in order to do this!  Yeah! Yippers…so hopefully this will be a finish for early 2012! 5. And, tho…not a sewing project but the ultimate work in progress, Mr. Einstein.  Now in Ohio at Advance training…

Wow! That was a pretty cool exercise.  I guess I really did do quit a bit this year.  I’m sure it could have been more had I not taken a spill in softball June 12th.

Which leads me to the one thing I’ll always remember about 2011…
Anterior Cruciate Ligament replacement surgery…Let the New Year Begin!!!!

  1. You’ve had a great year project-wise! And I was intrigued enough by the t-shirt rug that I had to go back and read your posts about it. What a great idea! I love the car organizer too!

    I’m a lousy gift wrapper, so you do a wonderful service for people like me. :O)

  2. I agree on the pattern of the year, Butterick 5495. (Unfortunately the number reminds me more of an Elvis Costello song then sewing patterns!) — Congratulations on a successful sewing/stitching year! And prosperous new beginnings for the year at hand!!
