2012 in Review

Before one can start to plan for what is next, I think it important to reflect upon what came before.  Looking back at 2012, I can't believe how busy this little blog was.

The year started out with a bang with the "Sewing For Boys" Pump Up Series.

And continued with a A year's worth  of "Sewing For Boys" patterns:  Raw Edge Raglan Tee, Mr. Two Face Pants, Kickin' Back Sweats, Treasure Pocket Pants, Mimi's Suspender Shorts, The Henry Shirt, Luka Hoodie, Pauley's Pullover, Goodnight Sweatheart PJ's, Little Heartbreaker Pants, Easy Linen Shirt

I had a ton of fun testing new boy patterns from some of my favorite designers and even drafted a few myself during KCWC. 1.  Basket Weave T-Shirt and Drop Crotch Pants 2.  Greenpoint Cardigan 3.  Go Anywhere Bag 4.  Alex and Anna Winter Pajamas 5.  Prepster Pullover 6.  Not Your Average Pullover 7.  Maxwell Top 8.  Color Blocked T-Shirt 9.  Dapper Dillingers

Not only that, but we had two super fun boy sewing series, Sew In Tune and Boys Will Be Boys . . . So Handmake Their Toys.

1.  Crate and Barrel Knock Off Pillow 2.  Union Jack Zipper Pouch 3.  Burlap Chair 4.  Rainbow Bath Towels 5.  Brownie Points Teacher Gift 6.  Policeman Hat Pattern  7.  Rainbow Cupcakes  8.  Accordion Pleated Skirt 9.  Rainbow Squares Quilt

The blog was heavy on the children's clothing this year but I did manage to fit in a few home decor projects, birthday parties, gift ideas, and even a few items sewn just for me.

And finally, if you usually follow along in a reader, make sure you click on over and check out the new blog design.  Something fresh and clean to start the year.  Not to mention (my favorite part), all of my social media buttons in one place.  A menagerie of ways to follow along with my crazy life.

The best bloggy part of 2012 was all of my fabulous readers.  Thank you so much for following along on my sewing/crafting journey and for all of your lovely comments throughout the year.  I can't wait to see what 2013 has in store!
