For the second time, then, and this time without all those ‘dangerous’ links!
I always have trouble remembering exactly what I made over the course of the year.
Some things, of course, stand out in my memory, like Worldwide Friends, or the current epic, The Cloths of Heaven. But I don’t keep a list anywhere. Perhaps I should, to remind myself that despite my personal perception, I’m really not a
lazy slow quilter! I feel a bit hesitant about doing it; it seems so much like blowing my own trumpet and boasting about how much I’ve achieved, but now that I’ve assembled the list, I can truthfully say I have done quite a bit!
So, here we go.

That’s a respectable total. In this coming year, I’d like to finish Cloths of Heaven plus at least two more quilts of at least lap size, I’d like to finish a couple of garments I’ve cut out but not sewn yet and make a couple more, I’d like to bring F²F to a successful conclusion and make my own quilt from everyone’s blocks when it’s my turn, and in embroidery I’d like to finish both the blue sampler and the ANZAC piece, and start something new and elaborate I have in the back of my head waiting to be let out. Modest goals, but knowing me, I’ll be adding to the list on an almost weekly basis!
Thank you all for your company and kind and thoughtful comments over the past year. Apparently, WordPress has calculated that I’ve had enough visitors to fill the Sydney Opera House to capacity ten times over, this year…
