January 2018


A Happy New Year!! I hope that 2018 is a happy and creative year for you all.


On the making front December was a quiet month. Once the classes were over, I did finish a bright, colourful quilt made from batiks, that has been sitting around for years, it was just what I needed on the cold grey days of early December, to cheer me up!


Don’t get me wrong, I have been sewing and knitting but not as much, Christmas and New Year have taken priority, its been a family time.

I keep a note of all the work I have finished through the year, and in 2017, I made 82 quilted postcards, this is less than 2016! Must be not making the duck ones for Laura, but her 18th birthday was the right time to stop – I couldn’t think of any more ideas! I completed 19.75 quilts. You might wonder about the 0.75, well it’s the one I am working on now. All nine pieces are made and quilted, but I just haven’t had the time to put it together – that’s the first job for January. I did make a lot of clothes, 22 different things!! I don’t think I will be doing as much in 2018, the wardrobe is rather full!


I have written myself a couple of lists for 2018, the things I have got to create and finish and then the other list is the ‘want to’ list. This is fairly long!!


So, I am going to be busy!!!!


(remember I regularly post on Facebook!)
