2010 Year in Review

Well, I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas - I definitely did! Lots of family and friends and food! Now to look back on 2010 here at What I'm Making.... At some point at the beginning of the year, I decided to sew as much as I could to make up for the lack of production in 2009. I also made a conscious effort to blog a bit more. I think that I succeeded on both of those goals, although there is definitely room for improvement in 2011! I have plans for that and will talk about it in a 2011 Looking Ahead post this week :) Looking back though, I am pretty happy with everything I made this year. The only dud in the group is the blue poplin blouse in the top right corner, it just didn't come out good. I will try this pattern one more time though, as I have seen it made up into some cute looks. But, other than this one, I like everything I made :)

I also became obsessed with collecting Pyrex this year! Here are some of my favorite pieces of 2010. I joined the Pyrex Collective and did my first swap :) I'm working on another swap right now and I'm hoping to keep having Pyrex luck in the New Year :)

I'd just like to say thank you to everyone who reads my little blog, whether you are a lurker or a commenter - I am grateful to you all! Please keep reading in 2011, I have plans for more posting, more projects and more Pyrex!!!

Congratulations on a very productive sewing year! What I like most about your creations is that you have such variety! From handbags, pouches, cases, to quilts and do it all! And quite well!!!!! Beautiful job - on the finished products as well as the blog! Looking forward to 2011!!!

Looks like you had a productive 2010! I have got to create a mosaic set like that with my Pyrex. It looks so good! I am on the Pyrex swap Flickr group as well. I'm always up for a trade. Thanks for the follow and good luck in the giveaway!

Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting, and happy new year to you! I love this mosaic and all the projects you made this year ... super productive, and it makes me itch to get back to non-garment sewing!
