The end of the year is nigh and people are starting to make lists. Lists containing titles such as: "Planned projects for this year at the end of last", "Finished projects this year" and "Planned projects for next year". I like making lists, too, I want in!
At the beginning of 2007 I made a nice picture-post of projects finished in 2006
, and was quite surprised at what I had turned out. I did not, however, go in to much detail about planned projects for this year. In fact, let me quote myself in full:
For this year I want to finish my gloves, my hose and do a pair of turnshoes in the leather I now have for them. Finish the English fitted gown, do some headgear for the 1410 surcote. More fabulous scrolls - an Italian white vine scroll I can finally be completely happy with perhaps.
--Lia, January 2007, emphasis added
In summary then: I did not
finish my gloves, I did not
finish my hose (although I did complete another pair completely from scratch - hurray!), I did not
do a pair of turnshoes, I did
finish my English fitted gown
, I did not
do headgear for my surcote and I did not
make a white vine scroll. Which puts my score at one for six. Still, in all, my EFG is fabulous enough to make up for it!
That gown was not the only thing I did all year, though. Oh, no, this is where the list starts.2007 - Sewing Projects
