Well, what an odd little year that was. I'll be the first to admit that it most certainly wasn't the year of productive blogging! With a mere 30 posts over a whole year, one could say I was a little distracted...
It was the year that saw me design and sample up a range of "deluxe lined hoodies" for an innovation company - and consequently become the master of the welt pocket.
It saw me as a reviewer for the Sydney Fringe Festival (you can read my reviews here and here if you like).
and move houses.
It was only 2 blocks away, but it meant saying goodbye to all my beloved sewing space.
It was the year I cat sat -
Partied Underwater -
and started 2 new fashion internships on top of my full time job.
It was the year I entered the Tessuti Awards competition.
Rode the Zig Zag Railway
and made Gnocchi from scratch for the first time
It was the year that I saw my own dress in a REAL BOOK in my local Bookstore
(the pale blue dress and the bottom)
Sewed and shipped 7 skirts and 8 collars to be sold in a darling boutique in Zurich, Switzerland
Dotti's Boutique - Isn't it just beautiful!?
And become a Cat, A princess and an Evil Witch.
It saw times in the City -
And times by the Sea -
It was the year of merriment with family,
and the embracing of the New Year with Friends -
And yet after all that I feel like it was my most unproductive year so far. With that said, its been a year of change, a year of transition and most importantly a year of inspiration. It has set me up for 2013, hopefully a year of productivity, success and happiness and I'm thoroughly excited to get started with it.
I sincerely hope that this is not only "my year" but yours too. I look forward to sharing the adventure!
