The beginning of the year! When I am conscientious about moisturizing and blogging. Here goes…
I made a lot in 2018 – lots of baby quilts, of course. And finished up a lot of WIPs. And I also did this magical thing where I abandoned projects I didn’t want to finish. Very scary and liberating. Just deciding not to do something I don’t want to do. Hear me roar!
This is the first of a series of posts recapping my crafty accomplishments… first up, stitchy and embroidery projects. I wanted to do more seasonal decorating in 2019, so a couple projects are related to that…
I made some sweet little felt hearts to celebrate Valentine’s day on my Valentine’s day tree. Pattern from Purl Soho.
And I made some wee felt eggs just in time for Easter. Pattern and materials from Purl Soho. I am feeling less like I want to do seasonal decorating in 2019 – and then I see these little sweeties. I am torn.
I finished several embroidery projects that I am very pleased with… mostly Namaste Embroidery patterns. In fact, all of them except the circles on the pillow and the pink bouquet.
And then there are 3 other random stitchy projects…
An abstraction of my wedding boquet, because I wanted to try fabric painting.
A floaty scarf with tassels. This is another Purl Soho project. I love the scarf. I HATED making all those tassels.
A tiny dresden. Just because.
