Unofficial “One Year” Sewing Anniversary

I can’t, with any real accuracy, pinpoint the date last August that I began sewing.  I can only say that it was several weeks before Dragon”Con, since I made a skirt for the event.  So I am going to count TODAY as my one-year sewing anniversary.  Woot!

That’s right.  I am a slacker, and have not sewn anything to post about since before I left on vacation.  Shhhh.

Elizabeth and I had plans for each doing a nifty blog post about “the year in review” with some fun stats, in a fancy marketing-style analytics picture.  But alas, I am too lazy for that at the moment.  I will, however, try to provide some amusing statistics.

My Sewing Year-In-Review:

  • 24.5 total garments created
  • 3.5 Costumes – Fairy Skirt (this is the 0.5), Pirate, Steampunk, Project Breyna
  • 12 pairs of pants
  • 11 pairs of pajama pants
  • 3 skirts
  • 3 dresses
  • 3 tops
  • 3 linings attached
  • 3 broken needles
  • 5 bent needles
  • 15 completed patterns
  • 1 Liebster award
  • 8 calls for advice from Mom
  • 48 blog posts written
  • 462 text messages to Elizabeth complaining about patterns
  • 3,918,247 f-bombs dropped

Bad things always come in threes, right?  Is that why three is such a prevalent number on the above list?  Hmmmmm … It’s not very impressive when I think about it like that.  But I guess I have a day job to limit my sewing time.  I had delusions of grandeur thinking about this list of stats a month or two ago.  I thought to myself (and to Elizabeth), It would be super cool to keep track of how many yards of fabric I used / bought / cut, how much thread, how many yards of trim, how many zippers, how much money I spent, etc.  But since I didn’t think of that until two months ago, that info is nonexistent.  Maybe next year, if I can remember to track all the numbers for my projects from here on.  Ah, Excel spreadsheets …

I hope your year of sewing was just as fulfilling as mine was!  I look forward to a new year of many more fun and exciting projects 🙂

      Thanks 🙂 You too! When are you doing your post? I think next year I’ll try to have a fancy analytics image.

    12 pairs of pants??? I have yet to make a pair of pants that doesn’t either split me in half or make Romeo jealous and you have made 12 pairs….wow! I was already impressed with you, now I’m twinging it with cat-like disgust! Hapy Bloggiversary!

      Haha thanks. Only 1 pair was remotely “real” … the ones for my Steampunk costume. The rest were PJs! I did like the pattern for the non PJ pants though, I might someday make it again.
