52 things in 52 weeks - 2012 FINISHED

I usually stitch over the weekend and this will be a good list to see how much I did at the end of the year. One item counts as one finish but for really simple items (cloth napkins, for instance) 4 items will count as one. I will start by listing out the things that are on my mind and I want to accomplish and will keep editing this list and picking from this list as the mood hits. I'll come up with the tutorial and inspiration links later. I've got stuff in my bookmarks on various laptops, and also on pinterest.

Here's my pinterest

Week 1- (01/01/2012) For this week I'm planning on making #51 Little grey dress. It looks very cute and easy to accomplish in a couple hours. I need to build more items for Aanya's winter wardrobe and this would fit in very nicely. As far as color, I have hot pink, red, grey, and spring green in my stash already.  I'm trying to sew from my stash so not going to go shopping for anything. I might just use the grey as Aanya does not have anything grey. The pattern is size 4T-5T so I will need to size it down to about a 2T. I'm planning to compare it against a 2T coat pattern I've made before. Hope it goes well!

October 1st update: I have been updating the list in google docs spreadsheet. At this point, I'm at 38 items completed out of 52. Feeling really good I will most likely be able to get to 52. Gearing up to fall/winter sewing.

Jan 1, 2013: Completed the list for 2012!!!! Way happy with keeping track of the items this way. New spreadsheet started for 2013. Goal for this year is to photograph and blog items after completing them.
