it' recap time! 2013 is over! and can i just say thank god it is! it was not a good year, but i think that's because it was an ODD number year! it was a mix of good and bad, quitting my job = bad, starting blogging and the floral suitcase = good and i just wanna say the blogg-y/quilt-y world is so wonderful :) so last year was swings and round-a-bouts.
recap time means collages! i can hear you all whooping! i know everybody says this but it really has been fun to look at my quilt-y makes from the past year, i sew-ed a lot more than i thought i had, like 11 quilts - that made me smile :)
2013 was the year i started craft fairs, boy was that fun! (that's not sarcasm, honest) as i've said before i really have learnt a lot, i'm thinking of doing a series of post for anybody thinking of doing a craft fair and want to know some more about it :)
... and i think we can all agree that it was the year of the cushion! (these aren't even all of them) cushions are a great way to get all the creative ideas bouncing around your head out in a quick, fun way and aren't as time consuming as a big quilt.
so it's a new year which means resolutions, here are a few of mine:
- blog my progress and finished quilt-y items more
- to carry a sketchbook and doodle all my little ideas
- be more adventurous in my quilts and fabric choices
- take better photos
- learn to use photoshop and illustrator
i think that's enough to be getting on with this year, what are your resolutions? are you making any?
HAPPY NEW YEAR
and here's hoping for a great EVEN number year!
