Happy New Year! I didn’t get as much quilting done in 2012 as I would have liked but still accomplished a few. Now that I have quit my part time job that was becomming more and more like a full time job I have a bit more time. I completed a couple of last minute projects for Christmas gifts in the days before the big day. One project was these little sock monkeys for my two kids.
They have each been sleeping with their sock monkey every night so I guess they like them! 🙂
I also sewed three pairs of flannel pajama pants. One for my sister, one for my brother and one for me!
These are super comfy so I plan to make more in 2013.
I knitted a ruffle pom pom scarf for my Mom but didn’t take a photo of it. It was wrapped right after it was finished. I finished knitting a dish cloth and started another so I am slowly getting my stash of yarn used up and my stash of dish cloths stocked up.
No quilts were started or completed for Christmas but there’s hope for next year now that I have more free time. I am currently focusing on scrapbooking over the rest of the Christmas holidays. I am working on getting the photos from Christmas 2009 into my kids’ scrapbooks. (I’m just a little bit behind.)
We had a suprise basement renovation at the end of November/beginning of December. Our landlords decided to insulate and drywall our basement. We had to move a lot of stuff out in not a lot of time which was very stressful. All my crafting supplies are in the basement so it was no small task. But now that it’s over we have a warmer house and everything is very well organized. I went through it all and have refreshed my memory of what I have down there and reminded myself of projects I want to finish. So I hope 2013 will be a productive year that uses up a lot of my supplies.
I hope 2013 is a good year for everyone. Thanks for stopping by.
