Happy New Year!!! In the land Down Under, it's already 2014.
I've had a bit of a break from blogging, but have been busy sewing. In the lead up to Christmas, I was in a mad rush trying to finish off Christmas presents. At the eleventh hour, on Christmas Day, I finished the last present. Yay!!! I finished everything I had set out to make.
This year, I really must start Christmas sewing earlier and pace myself better. Hmmm... I've heard that before.
The photos above are some of my favourite projects made during 2013. Click on the individual photos to take you to the post.
One of the Christmas presents I have yet to show you, was a quilt; the second one I have ever made. I am thrilled with how it turned out and have plans to make more quilts this year. Since Christmas I've pieced 20 Peter Rabbit blocks, ready for a child's quilt. I'm hooked!!!
Another goal for this year is to sew more for myself. I said the same thing this time last year, however, and didn't make one single garment for me. Darning a woollen cardigan and shortening cuffed sleeves on a shirt, while they were for me, don't count as making something from scratch. Let's see if I can do better this year.
Wishing you all a happy, healthy 2014, full of fun, laughter and lots of sewing.
