Ending The Year On A New Start

There is a theory that I should unclutter my life, and my WIP pile and go into 2014 free from these many things demanding finishing. But I decided instead to show you that I have started another project. A little hand sewing that I have fit around the visitors and the visiting, based on this pattern that I dreamed up.

First there was an enjoyable fabric pull and some cutting of hexie papers, and then some basting - the old fashioned way, with needle and thread.


And then I have been slowly making progress stitching some of them together.


I'm trying to stick to low volume fabrics with a white or cream background for the most part. I am really enjoying the variety that I have in my stash, largely in thanks to some swaps I participated in.


Obviously there is a long way to go with this project, but I do think I have made a good start.

Meanwhile, may I wish everyone a very Happy New Year and all the best for 2014. I'm starting the year by disappearing for a few days. So here I am, with my marvellous new computer and I have barely touched it since Christmas Day. I've barely been online at all, too busy socialising, enjoying life and generally making the most of the holidays. Hope you have been too.

  20. Happy New Year to you too! Pfft whose theory is it to uncluttered your life, begin with a clean slate etc? Surely that doesn't apply to craft? Part of the joy is the process so why rush to finish. I got a new sewing machine for Christmas (I know, massively spoiled by my very tricky husband!) and only got to use it yesterday. Too busy holidaying and socialising.
