12 in 2012 Conclusion

I know that I've been talking about this 12 in 2012 vow. Well, I didn't make it, according to my ever-changing wardrobe plan, I only completed 10 of those items. However, in terms of creative output I created so much more. So from here out all plans are fluid, just like life. Whatever I create is a triumph because in the past few years I've spent less time on exercising my creative side (I was an art major!) than I would have liked.

This is my actual list of 2012 creative accomplishments:
  1. Pattern Runway Pattern Mash-up Gray Skirt
  2. Built By Wendy Corduroy Skirt from Sew U
  3. McCall's 4632 Boxy Blouse
  4. My first wooden bead necklace
  5. Burdastyle Irmchen's Twisted Drape Top
  6. Grainline Studio Scout Woven Tee #31002 
  7. A pair of strappy sandals made from Old Navy flip flops.
  8. My second,  more elaborate wooden bead necklace.
  9. My first quilt; pieced, bound, and completed in four weeks.
  10. Grainline Studio Tiny Pocket Tank #31001
  11. New Look 6939 Shift Dress in an Alexander Henry print
  12. Vogue 9772 Swiss Dot Summer Tops (2)
  13. A men's necktie from a Purl Bee blog tutorial
  14. Initiated a successful meet-up and fabric/pattern swap of Beltway-based (VA-MD-DC) sewing bloggers.
  15. Vogue 9745 Flat Front Pants
  16. Simplicity 5190 fall-flavored floral faux-wrap frock
  17. Two children's jumper dresses and two tops, made from fleece and New Look 6911 (OOP)
6 tops, 5 gifts for others, 2 skirts, 2 dresses, 2 necklaces, 1 pair of pants, 1 pair of footwear, and 1 quilt. Not bad, not bad.

Therefore, I feel really good about last year. In terms of creative output I accomplished an item per month, at least. Looking forward to 2013. Expect to see more projects you've already heard about (ad nauseam!) and some you haven't.

Oh and I almost forgot, I also graduated from college!!!

I like your attitude for 2013 - probably because it matches my approach! I love lists, but have a hard time sticking to them!

I've really enjoyed following along with your makes, both here and on Flickr.

Happy 2013!
