A Stitcher's Wardrobe

Several completed objects did not make it into this collage -- a pair of mitts, a pair of mittens, three more hats, more blue jeans, and some underthings. And one sock. Oh, and a pair of leggings that looked hilarious on my dress form. I'll try to share them randomly in the next week.

My acheivements: I hand knit and wrote patterns, machine knit, sewed with my Bernina, serged with my Husqvarna, serged and chain stitched on my Siruba, acid dyed, fiber reactive dyed, spun, felted, trimmed, thrifted, refashioned, embroidered, pattern-drafted, crocheted, pompommed, appliqued, patchworked, mended and embellished.

I fell short in a few goals, but hope the next year sees me screen printing, weaving, painting, and designing my own fabric at Spoonflower,

I have donated some lesser used clothing to the Salvation Army to give my new things breathing space in my closet. And I hung everything on wooden hangers to look uniform and tidy. It is a happy place.

Monday I will be in my Brother-in-Law's barn helping with shearing. It feels like the custom that marks a new year for me.

Thanks a million for visiting here and cheering me on, it has been a fun year!

It really has been inspirational! I've always made stuff, but never looked at it with an idea of my wardrobe. And it's encouraged me to do more sewing. Because if there's one thing I need to go with the fleece and yarn stash, it's a fabric stash!!
