It's that time again. Time to reflect on the year that's past before blindly leaping into the year ahead. I'm pleased to say that overall, 2014 was a good one for me.
There were so many highlights, it's hard to know where to start. It was my first year of teaching, not only at at The Harbour Gallery in Jersey, The City Quilter in New York (it was wonderful to meet Chris at last) and MyBearpaw in Edinburgh too. My goodness what happy memories I have of those times and all the wonderful ladies I met.
The Fat Quarterly Retreat was also fabulous and it was wonderful to catch up again with fellow quilters at the Stitch Gathering in September. I've nearly finished the quilt I made with Thomas Knauer!
I also had a fabulous time here in Jersey with some wonderful textile artists.
Not to mention taking a 2 day class with award winning Phillipa Naylor, who shared her secrets of FMQ. What an inspiration she was.
And I met the wonderful Strip Bee ladies, and we swapped our beautiful quilts in the sunshine of Jen's back garden. It was so much fun, I just wish we could have been together for longer.
And so to my year's makes in pictures.
Starting with quilts. Not so many, but each special in it's own way.
Then there was lots of bunting and cushions...
And then I got a little bit obsessed with making mini's, zipper pouches and sitting in front of the tv stitching pretty embroideries.
I know there's more makes than I can find photos for, but I think it's fair to say it was a productive year. 2015 certainly has a lot to live up to! But no fear, I'm hatching plans, hatching plans...I can't wait to see what it brings.
Thank you so much for stopping by,
