Other plans

  • Learn to draft a trouser block (going to a locally held class)
  • Mend textile items at home which need fixing
  • Successfully make any items for special birthdays coming up this year

Keeping track of my progress and achievements

I decided that this year my day job and hobbies would collide in the form of this spreadsheet – the my makes spreadsheet!  At the end of 2019, I realised that I couldn’t remember a lot of the makes I had achieved, particularly gifts as I no longer had them, so this year I am keeping track.

I am going to gather data on various aspects such as whether it’s a gift or not, what type of project, how long it takes and the cost, if possible.
