It's that time when we look back and see what crafty things we have made throughout the year.
I may not have done a lot of stitching this past year but I have certainly done a variety of things
Halloween exchange ornament my first attempt at making a nappy cake and the only Christmas ornament I managed to stitch for my own tree this year!
V stitch blanket made for mum and two pieces made for a Valentine exchange
The largest stitched piece I managed this year
and I'm happy to say that Joanne was very pleased with it :-)
My attempts with the sewing machine
There are 3 a items missing which i didn't get to photograph before they were whisked away, the scarf for Oliver, another blanket for Bonnie and some bunting, also for Bonnie.
And here I was thinking that I hadn't really done a lot this year, put all together like this I'm pretty happy with my makings for 2017 :-)
Thank you to all that have taken the time to leave comments on my blog this year, I really do appreciate it.
I know blogging has fallen out of favour with a lot of people at the moment and at times I have thought about stopping myself, it does take time and a certain amount of commitment to write regular posts so it's nice when people do take the time to say 'Hello'.
I like to keep a record of what I've done throughout the year too, and I think blogging is a good way to do that so, I will be here again in January to start off a new year.
I'm not going to make any New Year resolutions or set any goals for next year, I seem to sabotage myself if I do that, but i'm stealing Emma's idea, (from the Potter & Bloom podcast) and I've chosen a word for next year..I will let you know what my 'word' is when I post in January. :-)
So, I will See you in 2018
I wish you all a
Happy New Year
