2012 projects

For my resolutions this year, I've decided to give myself goals: instead of declaring something typical ("lose weight," say, or "eat less salt"), I'm going to cross off listed items. I think that's a better way to measure my success, especially because I don't know or care how much I weigh.

The following is a list of sewing projects I want to complete before December 31, 2012. Once a project is complete, I'll cross it off and note the date. Wish me luck!
