A Happy New Year to everyone. May 2012 bring everything you wish for.
I haven't made any resolutions. It really would be pointless as I am totally useless at sticking to anything. I am however determined to design (AND MAKE) and produce a pattern for at least one new item for each month of the year. I suppose I could cheat a little by writing out patterns for last year's efforts?
What...... I've got to do that as well?
Top of my list of new things to try is purse-making. It's something I've never attempted, as the combination of me and glue tends to be a disaster. However after seeing the beautiful purses made by Helena @microbionoar I'm inspired to have a go. (Plus - I've found a wonderful source of cheap purse frames)

Next on the list is a fabric birdcage from one of the latest Tilda books.
Aside from these makes I have so many WIP's to finish..... I'm rather ashamed to let on quite how many there are. Let's see...
Farmers Wife Quilt - 8 squares done - only another 135 or so to go. (Don't hold your breath).
See the button on the right hand side of blog for details.
Summer Sampler Series - Okay... so it's January..... it may be finished for this summer. (If I haven't used up the fabric I need in other products - sneaky suspicion I may have). Again - click on button in right hand column for more info.
My daughter's quilt - Another Tilda design featuring houses. Currently under construction for almost 3 years. (Why, oh why did I decide to hand-sew it?) Poor Sophie will be in a double bed before it's finished.
My French knot embroidery of an Alium head. Every single time I go to my sewing class, someone asks me if I've finished it. I don't reply anymore, just smirk. The hours I've put into that poxy little picture are beyond belief. Don't think I can face doing any more. Thousand upon thousand of the pesky little knots.
What else I wonder? Reducing the size of my fabric stash, rather than adding to it................
ha ha ha. A pig will fly by first!
