Happy New Year and 2018 Review.

2019 is here and I wish all of you who take the time to read my blog, good health, peace and happiness to you and yours. 

Here is my 2018 review:

Fabric and Pattern:
1.     2018 was a success. I did not purchase any patterns and I only spent 5% on fabrics. To date I’ve reduced my spending from 100% to 95%.

Successful Sewing & Non- Sewing Plans. I sewed the following:
1.     5 skirts
2.     five pillows (2- thanksgiving and 3- Christmas).
3.     three blouses
4.      spring ball gown
5.     Others-
a)     I completed a glue book. More about that in 2019.
b)    I completed my 2018 December daily journal on 12/30/2018.
c)     I re-discovered my love of crochet. More about that in 2019
d)    I worked on the Xmas quilt
e)     I went out my comfort zone this year by attending several events with non-sewing friends
f)      Went to a Marc Anthony concert- awesome
g)    Went on ladies road/shopping trip
h)    Listened to 3 Nora Roberts’ books on cd
i)       Did a few home dec projects that I did not post on the blog.
j)       I started a small business that started off great and I ended the year successfully.
k)    Organization: I maintain the areas around my home and in my craft/sewing space that was organized in 2017. In 2018 I cluttered a part of my basement that had crafting/sewing related paper stuff that I have not looked at in five years. More about that in 2019.
l)       One of my goals that I did not post was to blog once a month. I was successful from January to October. I got so busy in November and December that I did not have the time to blog.
m)  I spent a day with each one of my 82 and 86-year-old aunts in November; OMG! What an honor and a blessing it was.
n)    Last, but not least, my son graduated from college last June.

Unsuccessful Plans:
1.       Coats, Jackets, or Vest- failed.
2.       Dress or dresses- failed
3.     UFO- failed.

2018 exceeded my expectations; it was a successful year. And even though I did not achieve all my sewing plans, it was a successful year in so many other areas of my life.
I am grateful for all the blessing bestowed on me and my family and I am looking forward to 2019. Happy New Year!
