2015 Year in Review

2015 was productive, but was interrupted by us buying a house. I love the house, but moving certainly put a cramp on sewing for a few months. Hence the end of my list didn’t come to pass. Now that I have my sewing space fully set up, hopefully I will get more done in 2016!

2015 Costumes
