So here's a visual journey through the projects I completed this year.
|This is one of my most recent finishes.|
|Birthday present for a friend in April.|
|My nieces crayon drawings turned into Crayon Crazy fabric on Spoonflower and then sewn into skirts.|
|Inspired by my trip to India – above and below.|
|Baby boy quilt with my new Stitch & Yarn tags.|
|My first quilt pattern was released in 2015. I'm working on a follow-up for 2016.|
|Patchwork cushions made from my Blomma fabric.|
|This was my first finish for 2015. I wasn't sure about it at first and there are a few things I'd do differently next time, but I really like it now.|
|Mother's Day socks. Mum dancing a jig in them can be seen on my Instagram feed!|
|Knitted necklaces for an assignment.|
|Juliet's cardigan was knitted in 2014, but the two on the right, Phoebe's and Olivia's were finished this year.|
|And my final item for the year – Dad's 70th birthday present. A Brooklyn Tweed Sawyer sweater. I'm super-chuffed with this one and it fits him perfectly.|
2016 is going to bring more changes. First off, I'm heading back to work next week. I still have my list of projects on the fridge for completion during the coming year, but I re-did it after accepting the contract role. It's not quite so ambitious any more, but it still has its challenges.
Wishing everyone a happy, healthy, creative and handmade 2016 – I'm off to start on that list.
Happy New Year!
