Off to a slow start blogging, but that's okay. The tortoise won the race, and this isn't a race anyway. Good thing! And I guess it is time for a bit of looking back.
Crafty-wise, I have had a pretty good year! Several winter shows around these parts, a few a bit further, and my first in Toronto! I always love the social aspect of the shows, meeting and talking to shoppers and fellow vendors. And when I am fortunate, I am make a few sales as well! I used my Square reader the first time and it made me a few sales I would not have made otherwise. Three cheers for technology and free wi-fi! ( I am one of the only people I know who does not have a smart phone. Not in the budget).
I was in an excellent online charity quilting bee, but had to quit that in the summer due to some life craziness. I hope to re-join the do. Good Stitches charity bee again in the future, but I am involved in my community a bit, and with little ones around, it leaves precious little time!
Here are some photos of some things I made this year.
|Small wall hanging for my newest niece.|
|Stilt-walker pants for the fabulous stilt-walker in the lantern festival in Prince Edward County.|
And now for the public declaration of my goals for 2014:
- Blog more (already tied with last year's blog posts! Yes!)
- Refashion more (or rather, take photos and post about it)
- Make quilts for my kids, then expand my repertoire beyond wonky log cabins and block within block
- Make some not-mainstream clothing. Not that my current skirt makes are terribly mainstream, but I have some ideas a bit more out there
-Continue doing shows!
-Do some more arty fibre art/wall art type things
Best to stop here. Also, I need to cut this short and get back to organizing. I want to create, but the house is a disaster and it needs attention before all my ideas. It is so unfortunate to have grown-up priorities.
