2016 Review

I will be taking a computer/blogging break for the next couple of weeks.  It has been a bad year for me health wise and I lost my sewing mojo for a long time. Arthritis has made anything other than knitting difficult :(  I have a pitiful number of finishes this year...

Only one quilt, a gift for my son and his finance

 My cosy autumn shawl
A gorgeous baby jacket
 another lacy shawl

The good news is that my hands are much better and my quilting mojo is back :) I am busy trying to finish My Liberty Quilt and have a lots of hand appliqué prepped, I am hoping to do some stitching over the holidays.

Until 2017 - Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!


  1. Good to know your sewing mojo is back within reach. Enjoy your break - see you in 2017!

  2. so glad your hands are better - I have been having trouble with mine to but work through it - some days I have to do more by machine than by hand other days I can do just fine. I guess as we get older it is a fact of life for those of us that have done a lot of hand work over the years. Hope the new year will be great for you

  3. Enjoy your break ,it's hard to keep stitching g when you are not feeling well. I will look forward to catching up and seeing all the new projects when you are revived in the new Year.

  4. I am glad you have gotten your quilting mojo back, I think mine is rising to the surface and I have kept sane thanks to knitting also...

  5. I'm also glad to hear you're feeling better and sewing again, your liberty applique looks very inviting! All your work is just lovely and I enjoyed taking a closer look at your sewing basket contents! Thanks to you I have signed up for Sarah's, Down the Rabbit Hole 2017 project and can't wait. Have a lovely break, Merry Christmas😊

  6. So glad you've found your mojo and that you're feeling better! Christmas wishes to you and yours and wishing you a much healthier and productive 2017!

  7. Merry christmas! I look forward to seeing your stitching in 2017

  8. Merry Christmas! I feel your pain -- I have arthritis as well, all over my body. Not fun. But you have still made beautiful things this year!
