Hellooooo. I hope you all survived the crazy Christmas and New Years period. Hubby and I had a lovely break in Adelaide, South Australia, with his family but we're now back home and looking forward to a HUGE year ahead, with hopefully lots of sewing, work around the house and, of course, special moments galore with baby girl. Exciting!!
Before all that, though, I thought I'd better do a final check over my Making Christmas list - just to see how I did. Admittedly not all was completed but I am rather happy with how I went.
Here's the final summation...
1. Robot Embroidery Library Bag
As the intended recipient of this book bag was born just 5 days after another bub in the same group of friends, I also thought that I'd better make a second bag for baby #1.
UPDATE 14/1/14 - Blogged here
Success! I admit, I am having a bit of a love affair with elephants at the moment so I just couldn't resist.
These bags have both been gifted for Christmas, with some gorgeous board books.
2. Personalised Cushions / Pillows
Yes, just the one, but considering that this listing was always a maybe-but-probably-won't-happen, I'm pretty happy with that.
3. Kindle Cover
Unfortunately I don't have pictures of this finish (yet) as it was a last minute effort the night before my early Christmas celebrations with the family. I know, I know, that sounds really dodgy but please believe me - I did get it done and the Kindle fits inside nicely and my Mum is happy. True story! :)
4. Bear Paw Quilt
5. Toffee Shards Quilt
6. Wonky Stars Quilt
7. Softies for Mirabel
I am terrible, horrible, awful but my Softies for Mirabel project just didn't happen this year. I know, disgusting. Sorry kids! I will have to make it up with extras next year. :(
8. Reorganisation of my Sewing Room
Yeah, this didn't happen BUT it will very soon. We have plans for some new shelving and a new layout. I am soooooooo excited, it's quite ridiculous. Stay tuned.
Phew! Not bad, if I do say so myself.
Now I'd better catch up on my blog reading - you guys have been busy while I've been away!
I missed the last link up for Making Christmas - but that's ok. Huge thanks to Janine and Rebecca for hosting this wonderful event. I love that it kept me accountable and on track! Thanks lovely ladies!
