Memories of 2008

What did I do in 2008? Good question. I'm finding it a bit frightening that I've had to think really hard to remember things of significance. Let's see....

  • Celebrated my kids' 4th, 3rd and 2nd birthdays. This may not sound that significant, but raising children is where a rather large chunk of my time has gone.
  • Rediscovered my love of sewing. If my memory is correct I made 1 x kids jeans, 4 x kids t-shirts, 2 x kids skirts, 1 x kids dresses, 2 x adult t-shirts, 1 x adult skirts. Hey, that sounds like quite a bit :)
  • Discovered Ottobre Designs - a great source of patterns. (I know I keep mentioning them ... they really are that good).
  • Learnt how to make dichroic jewellery. Sold 1 of my handmade pendants. Found a retail outlet that would sell my jewellery but didn't follow through and didn't leave anything with them to sell (they were going to charge 50% commission).
  • Learnt how to sew handbags. Have visions of selling handmade bags and dichroic jewellery.
  • Lost around 8kg.
  • Discovered blogging. Is that an achievement? I'm not sure ... but it is significant ;)
  • Made my first block of patchwork.

I really feel that there should be more to this list, but I'm stumped. One of my goals for 2009 is going to be having more achievements!

If you work on keeping your blog up to date, it makes it easier to see achievements:-)
