2015 Round-up

Oh boy have I been busy this year!

Whilst making this collage I thought I might try to select my top three favourite projects to share with you. But no way Jose, there's simply no way I could pick just three! It's a little like trying to pick a favourite out of my children. Nope, love them all. So many memories here - and lots more happening behind the scenes, what an awesome year it has been. I still have a few projects in work-in-progress mode (let's face it, who doesn't) - specifically my alphabet quilt, my Farmer's Wife quilt, and my Storytime cross-stitch sampler to mention just three. All are favourites, and none of them are abandoned, but working to some hard deadlines recently has meant that I had to put all discretionary sewing on hold for a little while. Hopefully I can get them all finished in 2016! (me = ever the optimist).

I took advantage of the Christmas break and did a major tidy up of my sewing room and fabric stash, and my computer files. I came across several pictures that I had shared on my Instagram feed but forgotten to share here on the blog! So let's catch you up.

  1. What beautiful, beautiful projects! Just one look at this blog and it inspires me to create :)! Especially love all the 'pastelly' fabrics. I too could never choose a favorite from all of them. Happy New Year, Sedef!

  2. Good post. I find out something new and difficult on personal blogs I stumbleupon each day. It's always helpful to read content from their writers and practice a little something from their internet sites.
