Another year over…

Hi everyone,

It’s been a while since I’ve been in the quilting zone. I’ve been concentrating on lots of hand stitching over at Sewing Beside the Sea. I’m sure the quilting bug will find me again when my sewing room warms up a bit. At the moment it is far too cosy in the living room sitting with my feet up, doing a bit of blackwork, cross stitch, knitting and crochet….not all at the same time of course!

I was just updating the “Finished 2013” page above and I can’t believe how many things I managed to complete, especially as it has been such a busy year for me apart from sewing. I’ve enjoyed every single project as well as reading all of the lovely comments and emails from people along the way. Your blogs have been very inspirational too, so I have many ideas stored up for future projects in 2014.

Here is a little gallery of my finished projects this year. Please note that from May onwards, I only included patchwork and quilting projects on this blog. So, if you’d like to see the hand sewn projects from then on, just hop over to Sewing Beside the Sea. If you’d like to visit any of the posts relating to the pictures in the gallery, just go to the “Finished 2013” page above and then click on the photo.

Happy New Year to you all. I hope you have lots of exciting projects lined up for 2014 πŸ™‚ Now….where did those chocolates go?

    • I suspect you will have far more finishes than me this year and they’ll all be equally wonderful! The cross stitch is actually a narrow boat which we have on the canals here in the UK. Many of them are now houseboats. I love Bothy Threads designs πŸ™‚ Have a fabulous New Year Doreen. Thanks for all of your support this year. Avis x

    • Hi Caitlin, Thank you very much for visiting, the follows and everything. The Tetris quilt is huge and I had a bit of a battle with the quilting on the black fabric but it turned out great. I just had to be patient and do a bit at a time πŸ™‚ Happy New Year! Avis x

  5. Seeing your finishes like this inspires me to keep on focusing on finding time for quilting this year, so I can have a 2014 finished gallery of my own, even if it’s small. I so enjoy your work and your blogs. Best wishes for the new year! πŸ™‚

    • Thank you Deborah and Happy New Year to you too πŸ™‚ Believe it or not I haven’t had good blocks of time available this year but I have been able to leave each project in place rather than tidying it away and getting it back out again every time I want to do some. It’s so much easier to pick it up and do a bit more when it is all set up and ready to go. Thank you for your support this year! Avis x

    • Same to you too Gun! It’s cold here today but I bet it is even colder in Sweden. I’m going to dig out my unfinished ripple blanket today and crochet from underneath it to keep warm πŸ™‚
