2013 was the year I…..

…. made a few cushion

a couple of quilts! 

that I dipping my toe into dressmaking (I say that very loosely, more dress-bluffing!!!) 

And that I made a various collection of pouches, table runners, bags and other madly stitched things! 

I truly can not believe what I have produced! I actually love looking around my house and seeing so much fabric goodness. And I am amazed and grateful at the online friends I have made and kept this year, some that I've never met and from the opposite corners of the world and others that I had the pleased of meeting at Fat Quarterly Retreat! Are you going this year???? That is definitely an aim for me, and I got some Christmas money to put to it!  Have you seen who's teaching?
I have really ignored knitting and cross stitch this year and I plan on some time for that next year. 

Heres to a crafty 2014 in which I
make some of the things that are bouncing around my mind,
that I use my fq bundle of Chicopee (If you have any pattern suggestions, I'd be really grateful!)
that I be a bit braver with mixing colours, I always tend to play safe and stick to fabric ranges,
that I use some of those fq's that I am just hoarding for NO reason!
and dare I say it…. make more cushions!!! Surely no house can ever have too many? Can they?

What are your craft-olutions or sewing aims? Or do you have a word for your 2014?


  1. Great set of makes, and no you can't have too many cushions

  8. Lots of beautiful makes there! I can't choose a favorite! I hope to get some dressmaking under my belt this year and I'm working on FQR (it's the cost of accommodation and travel that's the killer)
