  1. Wow, Sweetiepie, what a year it's been!

    It's amazing to see all of these great projects in one place, and to recall all the fun photo shoots. It was fun being part of it, and to help find locations to showcase your outfits. You've done an incredible job, keeping up with it whilst being busy in your day job.

    Looking forward to seeing what the new year brings and how your sewing will travel down new paths.

  17. Funny that you should mention how each garment embodies the time and place it was made. Only yesterday I was listening to a fascinating radio documentary as I was sewing and I know I will think of it every time I wear the top I was making. Many of my garments instantly take me back to what was going on in my life at the time. Sometimes it's as simple as remembering perfect weather and birdsong and other times it's a lot more meaningful. Yet another bonus from making your own clothes! I'm impressed with the sheer number you produced this year and all so very lovely!
