I feel like December hasn’t existed. Though my calendar tells me otherwise. It’s also telling me that the end of the year is only 2 weeks away. I don’t know if I’m ready to face a new year yet as I really kind of enjoyed 2014.
We did our own family pictures.
The Feather Quilt started to become a reality.
I finished my mom’s table runner.
I started my last big order for GRREAT.
We installed an entire backyard fence all by ourselves and my garden went nuts even though it turned out to be a bad year overall for vegetables.
The Feather Quilt was finished.
RenFaire was cold but even better than last year.
I designed and blogged my first tutorial under my new name.
And I completed 2 more Lil’ Twister Stockings for Chris and I (before Thanksgiving even!).
My sewing year was dominated by The Feather Quilt project, but I did so many other projects that I just did not manage to snap pictures of or blog about. One of them includes Fiona’s RenFaire costume (which you can see in 2 of the pictures above). But that’s the way of a crafty mind. I often get so caught up in my current project that the last thing I want to do (remember to do) is snap pictures, edit, upload and then blog about them.
Starting in 2015 I’m hoping to start blogging under a new name, Little Red Thread, and begin getting a few more quilt tutorials and designs pushed out into the public eye.
This whole year has been a challenge and a struggle to find time to get all my ideas on paper and then tell you all about them. While I try my best to keep this blog updated, and I’ll be honest when I say I have no idea how some bloggers update daily, we’ve been having difficulties on the technical side of things, mainly with an ancient computer and time management on the toddler end of the spectrum. I don’t know how 2015 will turn out, but I do know I’ll continue to do my best to keep you along on as many sewing adventures as I can manage.
Merry Christmas, Happy New Year and Joyful Sewing!
