One Hundred Items!

If any of you have been reading my blog for well over a year, you may have remembered that at the end of last year, I decided to keep track of all of the items I've sewn in one year. Now that today is the last day of 2008, I pulled out my little notebook that contained a recorded copy of each thing I sewed in the sewing room this past year.

Keep in mind that I was gone for 4 months out of the year, and so who knows what the final tally would have looked like if I would have been home. I semi organized it into sections with several different things in one section (ie, under Regency, it includes gowns, robes, stays, spencers, etc). You can see what I like to sew the most. =)

Aprons - 35 items

Basic clothing - 12 items

Edwardian - 3 items

Other - 3 items

Peasant Shirts - 17 items

Regency - 12 items

Tote bags - 18 items

And if the calculator worked right, that makes for a grand total of 100 items!

It actually came to 99 this morning, and I decided, "Oh, why not make it an even one hundred..." so I sewed up another toddler's smock before lunch:

This one I think could pass for either boy or girl! Yes, it's up in the shop...

Wow, Cheri--good for you!! It's fun to keep track of things like that--there's a nice feeling of accomplishment when you tally it all up. I have one more book I want to finish up before I post my reading list for this year--maybe I should go work on my technique for warming up on the piano and reading at the same time. :)

I'm not sure if I should be embarrassed or not with all of that sewing! =) I'm glad I took record though.

I have a feeling that this year will be different though, and won't be sewing much. In fact, I have contemplated making this blog an archive, but haven't made a decision yet.
