Just over a year ago, I decided to get serious about this blog, with the goal of posting at least twice a month. I also wanted my free time to be more productive and I wanted to do a better job of documenting the things I made. Both of those decisions have led to a year of making new friends, learning new skills and more starts and finishes than I would have dreamed. It might be the fact that I actually have a scrap blog of the things I worked on, or it might be that I’ve actually gotten more done. Either way works for me!!! I did write some goals for last year….quite a few got finished , and several were added….here’s my review of 2016.
Stitching: flowers triptych, wedding sampler, Delft Sampler
Quilts: 3 mini quilts, 3 Wedding quilts, Slendid Sampler blocks
Sewing: Marfy coat, bias skirt and messenger bag, a Pirate coat, Christmas pajamas, DH button down dress shirt, and DD pencil skirt (final fitting coming up!)
Knitting: cardigan, 2 pair of socks, 4 pair of mittens, and 3/4 of the way on the Skaugum sweater
It has been a productive year, and the motivation has come from you my bloggy friends! Wanting to have something to share, being inspired by what you have shared, and most of all, your wonderful encouragement have created the momentum! So I thank you!!!
It has been a great year for me; I’ve learned, practiced, and have so appreciated how the process of making has helped me keep things (like work) in perspective. Thank you for your part in enriching my life!! On to 2017!
