First up are the quilts. There aren't as many of them as I would have liked there to have been finished. But I did end up with a couple of quilts that I adore and use on a daily basis. That's what makes me happy at the end of the day.

Cushions, all gifts or swap items. I like making cushions. Satisfying makes, useful and they don't take forever to produce.
Hoops. Well, I thought that I made more of these. Not sure if I missed some out, or if I just imagined that I did more than is shown here. I would like to do more hoops in the coming year. I enjoy them - a lot.
There were a number of table toppers, and table runners. Mostly made in the past little while. These are another thing I like to make. I find the more I do the more my imagination wants to stretch my design abilities. My most recent runner - the Cherry Christmas one - is most definitely my favourite.
Then there were the 'little makes'. The pin cushions, and needle books, fabric baskets, and other assorted odds and ends.
That is my year on the crafting side of things. For 2013 I have so many ideas bubbling away in my brain, and I am not sure which ones will win and make it from thought to fruition. Most certainly, if you had asked me twelve months ago what I planned to make in 2012 I would not have come up with 95% of the items shown here. That is part of the fun of all this. Seeing where my imagination, swaps, gift making and the like lead me along the way. Most certainly I enjoy myself whichever route I take.
