As 2011 comes to a close, I wanted to take a moment and say thank you to all my readers for your support and the many positive comments you have left for me. You guys have really kept me going! This blog has become a creative outlet for me and being a part of the blogging community has made my life richer in many ways. Looking back at some of my posts from this past year, I feel very proud of what I have done.
Just for fun, I would like to review the top 10 most popular posts. Here they are, with the most popular listed first:
#1. With almost 8000 page views, My Knit Ruffle Skirt Tutorial.
#2. Tiered Pillowcase-Style Dress
#3. Fleece Hat. This post is only about a month old and is already my 3rd most popular post. I came up with it on a whim to use up some scraps and match a cape I had sewn. Who knew?
#4. Lined Curtain Panel. I made these curtains for our family room. They were the 1st completely finished curtains I’ve made. It was a lot of fabric (over 14 yards). I won’t be making more curtains any time soon!
#5. Stay-Put Kitchen Towels. I love these! Now I always have a towel to dry my hands on…
#6. Rainbow Princess Dress, this was my daughters Halloween costume. She absolutely loves it and wears it around the house several times a week.
#7. Patchwork Tunic Top. In this project, I pieced together 4 inch squares of some unloved fabric, cut out a peasant dress pattern and shirred the top half. This is one of my favorites. I will be so sad when she outgrows it…
#8. Knit Romper. I altered a tutorial from another blog to make this romper.
#9. Dropped-Waist Dress. This post included a 5t pattern with the tutorial. I also used the pattern on her Christmas Outfit.
#10. Beach Cover-Up for me. I love this cover-up so much!!! The fabric was really hard to cut and sew, but it was worth it. I have never had a more flattering beach cover up.
#11. Up-cycled Patchwork Shorts. Oops, this project makes 11, but since it is for boys, I wanted to go ahead and include the post. I made these shorts from t-shirts my son had outgrown. I even won a prize for these shorts!

You've made some gorgeous outfits, but I especially love the shirred Patchwork Tunic top. It looks lovely and cool for Summer and also looks easy to get on and off. The shirring just makes it!!!
I just love all your ideas. I especially love the bathing suite cover up. Great ideas and I look forward to seeing what you come up with in 2012. Happy New Year!
