Hello bunnies! Here we are on the brink of another New Year’s Eve and since I am constitutionally incapable of resisting infographs, lists and any other method of quickly digestible information I felt that I just HAD to do a full recap. So here it is. My year of projects. Unless you have super spy vision you will likely need to click to see all the marvelous detail…

Ahhhh… whatayear, right? The first part of MY 2011 was heavily influenced by two separate, yet equal, forces. First, I was still working at the shop, so my primary fabrics were quilt weight cotton and voiles – things that we sold at the shop. Second, I was building up a wardrobe that reflected what I really LIKE, as well as a wardrobe that worked for my new non-corporate lifestyle. Goodbye suits, hello hot pink cotton!

In August I headed back to the workplace and by September had severed all ties with the shop and felt free to return to my real loves… wool, knitting, sweater knits. Classic styles that are best done with garment fabrics, not quilt fabrics. Plus, I really do have a soft spot in my heart for restyles. I was actually eyeing up a few of my crew neck cashmere t’s today, thinking to myself “I really DO like a lower neckline…” But that’s another post…

The fall was taken up with making some work clothes, and starting on house projects (hello quilt) and all of December was gift-city.

So what’s the tally? Oh, I’m so glad you asked…


Obviously, I love me some dresses.

And with that, happy new year!
