2015 Year in Review

Well, 2015 was a bit of a rough year with LIFE stuff but I did manage to get quite a bit of sewing done, especially in the second half of the year. Once we moved and I had a dedicated sewing room again, I was able to work on a lot of projects, and get a lot done! As you see, I completed only a portion of my PLANNED sewing in 2015, however, I also completed a large amount of UNPLANNED sewing in 2015, as I let inspiration take hold, and worked on all kinds of fun cape & accessory projects.
