Last Year - This Year

I was happy to be able to finish the Ikina Jacket during December but with the snows and cold weather, coupled with my lack of strength and endurance, I've not been able to keep sewing.   I've also had several falls that scared us.   Last week my neurologist and his PA observed that I am a lot better since the last time I was there the end of October.   Still,  improvement and progress is very slow, so it's hard to be upbeat when I'm used to being an active and productive person.    

I had to go to my Flickr photos to remember all the garments and coordinates I sewed up in 2010.  I hope to get better and eventually be as productive.   A group of coordinates and the Princess Tank Dress were for my sister.   Everything works with something else in my wardrobe.   The only pattern I would not sew again is the Vogue tunic.   I think this is a complete list, but I may have left out one or two things.

  1. You've had a very productive year. All the best for 2011.

  2. I hope your strength and stamina continue to improve. It's difficult not being able to do what you love. I'm anxious to see what you do with Louise C's new patterns!

  3. You had a very productive year. Hope this year brings good health your way and you get "on top" of things. Wishing good things for you this new year

  4. You really did have a productive year. I'm glad to read that your health is continuing to improve, even if you have experienced some problems.

  5. Terri, your Tosca dress is wonderful. I'm glad to finally see a review of it. It looks ghastly on the cover of the pattern envelope so I haven't been the least bit inspired to make it. Yours is adorable and I now am inspired to make it up. I should have known that SW would not make something bad. Thanks for posting about this in PR. I hope your health continues to improve. Best, Martha Myers
