Year in Review: 2013's Unfinished Projects

I had so many plans last year and there are items that are cut out and waiting to be sewn. What can I say, life gets busy and then there is always someone pushing other sewing onto the table. (Must learn to say no!) 

Yes, after the placket incident I lost my menswear sewing mojo. Enough time has past that I feel up for the challenge. Two out of three done leaving one more shirt in a dark blue and black fabric cut and ready to sew.  

Good grief, I can't believe that it has taking this long to finish this one project. Okay, to be completely honest, it is further along than it appears in the picture (20 x 14 squares). But I still have another 20 x 14 square side to sew. I wonder how many years it will take to complete?

Seriously, you do have to admire folks that quilt. This project just goes to show that sewologists are not crafty people.  

This project started out as a wearable muslin for Mama R. It is about three-quarters of the way done. She's a patient woman.  

And I didn't even mention the drawer of cut-out projects.  

How about you? Do you have some unfinished projects that are likely to carry over to 2014?  

Happy Sewing!  


  1. My one and only carry-over is a knitted blanket style quilt, in which all the squares eventually are sewn together, sadly it is carried over from 2007 ... guess it is on the 'one-day' list ... J

    1. Just one? Okay, you're my hero. I think I need to stop letting other projects jump cue and learn to say no. And then there is my other flaw--SQUIRREL! Easily distracted by new patterns.


The Iris Dress

It's not the greatest looking photo. It's kind of a hot mess and could use a iron to get rid of those wrinkles in the front but...
