Another Year Over!

Hi everyone, Happy New Year to you all!

Hasn’t the year flown by? I hope you found lots of time for crafting and that you now have several finished projects to show for it. I did a lot more hand stitching in 2014 than patchwork and quilting, not by choice, just that it was easier to pick up and put down hand sewing when I had spare time.

At the beginning of 2014 I launched the Chicken Run which is still going after a whole year! I have to thank you all for your support with that. There are now lots of handmade chickens all over the world. Also, a larger SAL group on my other blog has been formed for crafters wanting to finish a variety of projects. It started with only two of us, Claire and me, and now we are ten strong!

It’s been a very tough year for me in many respects and crafting has kept me motivated. There have been several occasions when I have been sent to the sewing room by my OH because he had decided it was time I had a break LOL. He was always right. It did me good to have a sewing break now and again.

Thanks to all of you who have liked, commented, emailed and read my posts last year. It’s always lovely to hear from you and even if you don’t comment, I know you are visiting the blogs.

Here are some photos of my completed projects from 2014. If you want to read the original posts click here and then click on the photo of the project you want to read about.

    • Hi Annett, A Very Happy New Year to you too🙂 I’ve got lots of ideas of things to make this year and my family bought me some lovely fabric for Christmas so I could be doing quite a lot of sewing soon.

    • Thank you Claire. My aim is to finish the quilting on more quilt tops. I need to make room in the storage box so I can sew more tops together😉

    • Happy New Year to you too Connie🙂 I’ve been a bit the same myself, reading blogs here and there but not always commenting. I hope you continue to make lots of lovely things this year. By the way, I’ve now tried maple syrup YUM! You may remember we chatted about that ages ago. It won’t be as nice as your syrup but I enjoyed it anyway🙂 Avis x
